  • Description

    Our senses process a multitude of data from our environment, which we can interpret in many ways. Drawing is one way to process such data and to communicate a sense of place without using words. By changing a line from hard to soft we might communicate something delicate or sun washed. Focusing on a few colors you could invoke a time of day or a place. This course takes students from the studio into the environment as it introduces historical and contemporary concepts and techniques of two-dimensional art practices. Students will be introduced to a range of media, including drawing, collage, watercolor, and acrylic painting, as they travel around campus to create individual and collaborative projects. Field trips and slide talks will explore historic approaches to landscape and place. The emphasis will be placed on formal and conceptual approaches as we move from drawing outside, using the drawings to create a visual vocabulary of marks and shapes, and exploring how color can communicate place. No prior painting experience needed.
