YC course syllabus / YU only
This course will cover a series of drawing fundamentals. The goal of this course
is the development of a basic vocabulary of drawing as a visual expression and personal
language. We will follow a general progression from the use of contour line to 2-
dimensional shape and on to full value drawings to represent three-dimensional objects.
Students will keep a sketchbook throughout the semester to be used for homework
assignments. More than 2 absences will result in the lowering of your final grade.¶
Students are expected to be on time to class as we cover the assignment for the day in
the first 15 minutes. 3 lates ( 7 minutes ) will be counted as one absence. Grading will
be based on the combination of attendance, effort and class participation along with the
midterm and final assignments. There will be a mid-term review and a final assignment.
Class participation and hard work will be counted as well as quantity and quality of work
produced. Those without previous drawing experience are not at a disadvantage, nor are
those with extensive experience necessarily at an advantage. Attendance is essential in
a studio class, most of your work will be done in session.
