CSDR 200 Drawing II: Building Skills 1.5 credits Eric Rutledge $615

Section A Meets 9/18/2014 to 12/11/2014 on Thursday from 6:30 PM to 9:45 PM.

In this intermediate-level course, students further develop their observational skills and technical mastery of various drawing media. A variety of processes, tools and strategies for both representational and non-objective drawing are introduced. Students investigate more complex compositions and a range of subjects including the figure, interior and exterior space, narration, abstraction, color, frame, mark and scale. Students undertake a personal direction within a broadened conceptual framework by gradually approaching more individualized problems, so that by the conclusion of the course they are prepared to work with greater independence. Prerequisite: Learning to Draw (CSDR 101A) or equivalent experience. Note: No class November 27.

This basic course introduces the novice painter to the essential concepts and techniques of oil painting, emphasizing the careful observation of subjects ranging from still life to self portrait and the figure. Class sessions explore the varied uses of paint as a material and its ability to render form and space through descriptive, expressive and symbolic means. Topics covered include basic technical control of materials and tools, methods of paint application, color mixing, and the preparation of the painting surface (paper, hardboard and canvas). Slide lectures convey the medium's nearly limitless expressive potential through a variety of historical and contemporary examples.
