This class will examine the natural world in our current culture in combination with technical aspects of oil paint. Course content will cover the transition from direct observation to conceptual work. Students will create a body of artwork referencing assigned readings and personally driven research relating to contemporary themes such as identity, the body, time, memory, place, language, science, spirituality, and how they connect to nature. At the completion of this course, students will be able to use the skills from a technical overview of observational painting to create a body of work exploring developed ideas based on individual research. **Course fee via student account**

This course is an introduction to the visualization of form, thought and expression through the drawing process. Concepts are introduced by lectures, discussions, demonstrations, research, and assigned projects. Designed to provide a broad introductory experience, students will experiment with a wide variety of media, tools, techniques and subjects to develop drawing expertise and problem solving skills related to design and composition. Course work will be assessed through critique, facilitating self-assessment, and the growth of both a visual and verbal vocabulary. The focus of the course is to provide awareness of the full range of ways in which drawing is used as a tool for both self-expression and communication.
