Drawing Beyond Observation

Course No. DRG 221-321-421  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Amber Kempthorn | Christian Wulffen | Michael Meier

This course will explore strategies for representation beyond direct perception, moving past the use of the traditional still life, landscape, or model as subject. How can a drawing describe the world that is beyond the range of our common visual observations? Different approaches to drawing, including free-association, metaphor, and mapping are explored to help define and circumvent personal barriers. Required for junior Drawing majors. Offered fall.
