Advanced Drawing

CFA AR 432

AR432 is an exercise in expanding students' command of the medium of drawing beyond its more classical definition. The working definition of drawing in this course tends toward a more contemporary one - encompassing any mark or alteration made to any surface, by means not always executed by the artist's own hand. Fleeting moments in time, our subjective experience of walking through a city, or improvised and unpredictable interactions with image capturing devices like cell phones or scanners can all be brought into the realm of drawing in this context. The format will consist of a collection of assignments emphasizing the performative, the interpretive, the mark, the remnant and beyond. Extensive drawing experience is not required to make great drawings in this class. Due to expanded nature of drawing the course will explore, students who are specifically looking to refine their representational drawing skills may want to look at other drawing elective courses.
