This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals and processes of drawing.  Students will engage with and explore a pletora of drawing methodologies such as mark-making, layering, additive/subtractive drawing, and the articulation of line, shape, volume, weight, gesture, and composition.  Through exercises that are grounded in both observation and abstraction, students will gain technical skills, confidence, and a critical eye for representing various subject matters and concepts.
