Natural Science + Zoological Illustration

Course No. BMA 253  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Thomas Nowacki

This course is designed to develop strong observational skills, and integrate traditional and digital media within the scope of monochromatic production. The goal will be to convey an aesthetically powerful illustration, which effectively provides a solution for a specific visual communication problem. The student will learn a vocabulary for expressing pertinent natural science and medical art concepts in relation to technique, design, composition, object accuracy/integrity and context. Students outside the major of Biomedical Art will be required to apply the concepts and techniques taught in class to observational subjects pertinent to their major of study. The emphasis will be tonal and line base methods in various media, including graphite, ink, black/white color pencil, carbon dust, and introductory digital illustration techniques in Adobe Photoshop. The rendering concepts learned will provide a solid foundation for subsequent semesters and be integrated further into the broader scope and applications in Biomedical Art. Offered fall.
