The first of two foun­da­tion draw­ing stu­dio courses, Draw­ing: Obser­va­tion intro­duces stu­dents to the fun­da­men­tals of draw­ing, per­cep­tive see­ing, and visual think­ing. It pro­motes respect for draw­ing as a crit­i­cal com­po­nent of visual expres­sion as well as a plat­form for intel­lec­tual inquiry and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. This course affirms the role of the human hand in effect­ing the con­ver­gence between thought and mak­ing, prepar­ing stu­dents to con­sider more com­plex, medi­ated approaches as their prac­tices grad­u­ally mature. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in both the fall and win­ter terms of every aca­d­e­mic year, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term cir­cum­stances. This course is also occa­sion­ally offered in the spring term.
