This class was designed to amplify skills techniques and understandings that were introduced in earlier drawing classes, and to expand the students' ability to use drawing in a meaningful way. Drawing was approached as both a visual exercise and a technical one. Communication through visual means was explored. Through a combination of lectures, demonstrations and work in classroom, the students understood drawing from the conceptual level to production.
Projects offered insight into the appreciation of the inadvertent mark, the use of transparent grease in order to fix powder to paper, exploration of Pareidolia (the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual patters), examination of petroglyphs and pictographs, Palimpsest (reusing surfaces from previous projectgs that still retain the project's image), Trompe l'oeil ('fool the eye'), and the use of found objects to produce work.
Featuring student artists: Amanda Martinez, Tamiya Belton, Courtney Babcock, Danica Hoffman, Timmy Caudill, Rebecca Lorenzo-Luaces, Felicia Difato, Katie Hearn, and Briana Ojeda.
