DR2220: Abstract Drawing
Students will explore and develop their perceptions and ideas through abstract drawing, with an emphasis on process. Starting with black and white media, students will produce a series of drawings transforming images from nature, and then do the reverse: focus on mark-making to discover/uncover individual perceptions of nature. An investigation of color and developing a visual journal will help students explore ideas and expand their visual vocabularies. Drawing in class will be adventurous in approach and scale; simple but unorthodox materials may be used on small and large surfaces, resulting in intimate as well as bold expressions of form and content. Contemporary artists using the language of abstraction will be introduced, and students will learn to analyze their own and each other's work in regular class critiques. This course is suitable for beginning through advanced students.
