ART 320 Advanced Drawing (4 per semester/maximum of 8)

This course is for students who have a firm commitment in the arts, who have adequate background in the use of techniques and materials, and who have experimented with a variety of approaches to subject matter. This course is designed to focus and develop personal approaches to subject matter and to encourage a sustained interest in work. Portfolios will be graded and midterm and at the end of the semester. In addition to the portfolio requirements, each student will give a presentation on a contemporary artist whose work has in some way influenced your own current body of work. Critiques will be regularly scheduled. This labor-intensive studio relies upon cumulative learning experiences through increasingly demanding projects. Competency is expected in numerous new skills and techniques, and their application in creating visually compelling concepts is essential to the success of completed artworks.
