This introductory course is designed to provide students the opportunity to develop foundational drawing skills. Students will be encouraged to explore technique and expand basic drawing skills in different media such as pencil, ink and charcoal. Formal, visual concepts such as line, value, shading and linear perspective will be covered. Subject matter such as still life, portraiture and landscape will also be included. Focus will be on representational reality, but will also include working from imagination.
This is a three credit hour class - studio art courses meet for six hours per week. The majority of class time will be spent drawing, but students will also be expected to work on projects outside of class.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The Final Drawing Portfolio (30%), a suite of ten (10) specified drawings from the later part of the semester.
Course Requirements and Grading:
There will be three major assignments, each worth 30 points, which is 30 percent of your final grade. Students will keep an ongoing sketchbook throughout the semester, which will be worked on outside of class. Students will also submit a midterm portfolio of drawings, as well as a final portfolio. Participation in the class, including the required attendance, is worth 10 points. Students must complete all sections of the class in order to receive credit for the course.
Sketch book – 30 points
Midterm portfolio of drawings – 30 points
Final portfolio of drawings– 30 points
Participation and attendance– 10 points
Total Points Possible: 100
90-100 points: A- to A, Excellent
80-90 points: B- to B+, Above Average
70-80 points: C- to C+, Average
60-70 points: D- to D+, Below Average
0-60 points: F, Failing grade
Along with individual sessions with the instructor, there will be three group critiques with the class. Critiques are a standard component to professional art education. Critiques are designed to provide 1) opportunities for students to discuss ideas about the direction of their work, 2) an environment where students can receive feedback about their art, and 3) a forum to discuss broader issues in art. All students are expected to participate in critiques. Opportunities for feedback are not limited to formal critiques – instructor is also available during class for technical advice. Midterm and final portfolio reviews will be individual sessions with the instructor to discuss work. Throughout the semester we may have occasional slide lectures and discussions related to topics.
Participation and Attendance: Attendance is an important part of your grade. Please arrive on time to class and be prepared to work. Ten percent of the final grade is based on class participation, which includes attendance, participation in class and completion of all assignments. Each missed class will result in the deduction on one participation point. Tardiness may effect this portion of the grade, with three late arrivals counting as an absence. Other participation such as discussion in critiques, is also considered and contributes to this portion of the grade.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Please turn in assignments on time. Late assignments will be down-graded. Turning in midterm or final portfolios will result in the deduction of a full letter grade.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Students are required to conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful of the learning environment. Please refrain from cell phone use, texting and other disruptive behavior in our class.
Material Usage, Storage and Disposal
Students are required to clean up after themselves. Please clear your studio area after each work session, and be respectful of the fact that we share studio space with many other classes. Students must handle, store and dispose of art materials in a safe manner that is in accordance with both state laws and university policy. Most of the materials required for this course do not create fumes, but we all must be considerate of others and the studio environment. If you have questions about materials, please ask!
