Course Description: 

This course is designed to develop visual awareness and perceptual acuity through the process of drawing.  Students learn to sharpen perceptual skills through observational drawing, and to explore the expressive potential of drawing.  A variety of problems and media will be presented in order to familiarize students with various methods of working and ways of communicating ideas visually.  Subject matter will include object study, still life, interior and exterior space, self-portrait and the figure.  Different techniques and materials (charcoal, graphite, ink, collage) are explored in order to understand the relationship between means, material and concept. Critical thinking skills are developed through frequent class critiques and through the presentation of and research into historical and contemporary precedent in drawing.  If you need assistance registering for a closed section, please email the department at fnarug@design.upenn.edu.  Note: course is open to undergraduate students only.
