Drawing II
ARST 432
Spring 2012
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

This class builds upon the course content covered in Drawing I (ARST131). As we continue to draw from observation, topics will include an in-depth exploration of the human figure and an introduction to color. This course also introduces a concept-based approach to drawing that explores narrative and content. While using brainstorming and ideation techniques, we will experiment with various marking systems, found imagery, processes, and spatial solutions. Further, the development of individual style and studio methodology is an aim in this course.

Essential Capabilities: Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Interpretation
Designing, Creating and Realizing: Students will conceive, create and complete original works of art. Ideation, revision and resolution are all stages of this process.
Interpretation: Students develop an awareness of how to "read" visual images, and how to find meaning in the formal and conceptual aspects of visual art.
