Bachelor of Fine Arts — Drawing

Goals specific to the drawing area are: to develop and demonstrate the ability to establish an intellectual, historical and aesthetic awareness of the drawing experience; to maintain a working knowledge, appreciation, and perspective of drawing as a major component of the creative process; and to increase one’s artistic sensibility and self expression within the drawing process.

 The undergraduate drawing curriculum is composed of four major components. These include Drawing Studio (Foundation drawing), Intermediate and Advanced Drawing, and Beginning and Advanced Life Drawing. It is recognized that drawing is fundamental to the study of fine and applied arts regardless of a specific area of focus. The full range of drawing problems and issues are presented throughout the drawing curriculum from introductory to advanced levels. Advanced Life Painting/Drawing is available for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to study the human figure and incorporate the figure into their work. Students in advanced drawing are provided individual workstations. Graduate students are provided with individual studios.
