Drawing is often considered a preliminary step towards achievement of an artist’s final work in sculpture or painting. However, drawing is also an independent art form and is valued as the most direct, personal expression of the artist. Both aspects of drawing are studied in works by the world’s old and modern masters. Students will gain greater understanding of drawing materials and formal problems by experimentation with chalk, charcoal, pen and ink, pencil, and pastels. This is a more advanced course than Drawing I.
