A certain pretentious course catalog. I never know whether to giggle or groan when i read it...
ARTS 040 - Visual Concepts and Processes: Drawing
Course will initiate practice and appreciation of graphic expression, with an emphasis on developing a conceptual understanding of traditional and contemporary pictorial concerns beginning with traditional observation drawing to sharpen perceptual awareness. Diagrammatic line and principles of perspective will be presented as spatial and compositional concepts. Assignments: ability to graphically locate objects on a ground plane; use of line, value, shape, texture as a descriptive design vocabulary; the human figure as dynamic form; engaging representation and abstraction as responsive narrative.
(Now tell the truth... did you understand half of that? LOL)
ARTS 040 - Beginning Drawing
Learn to draw what you see. View fine drawings throughout history and hear why they are thought to be good. Draw buildings and other objects in three dimentions and learn how to make it look real.
