FOU 112 - Foundation:Life Drawing

Credits 3
Studio / 6 hours per week
Requirements: Prerequisite:CVPA majors only; ARH and MUS majors by permission of the Foundation Studio Arts Director.
Studio course that introduces students to fundamental drawing principles. The advancement of observational skills is the primary concern, as it plays a major role in preparing students for subsequent study in the visual arts. Assignments develop abilities in the two-dimensional representation of form and space. In addition, students are introduced to the historical spectrum of drawing through lectures and demonstrations. Through intensive study of the figure, students are provided with a basis for artistic and cultural tradition. The human form, the most enduring theme of western art, has been used by artists throughout history to express their interpretations of the world.
