Prerequisites: Drawing I & II are required for this course. This course is intended for students who have completed their foundation in drawing (such as Drawing I & II) and who are interested in exploring ways in which drawing is used in contemporary practice. All students will be given assignments and be required to do in class and homework accordingly. This course builds upon the techniques students learned during their foundation and is meant to bridge theoretical and practical creation of work through the introduction of numerous contemporary art mediums and the student?s exploration of these.
Drawing in the expanded field is a studio art course that focuses on exploring contemporary drawing across a wide range of subjects and media. Students will initially look closely at ideas pertaining to the pictorial and conceptual nature of the subject of drawing as a means to record, communicate and discover through mark making in wet and dry media. As the course progresses, students will study artists working with drawing in media other than traditional materials. Alternative ways of drawing will be explored through the use of video, assemblage, on-site interventions and digital technology.
