ARTS 110H - Basic Drawing I-Honors (2,2) 3 Credits
Prerequisite(s): G.P.A. of 3.5 or permission of instructor. Instructor’s approval of a portfolio comprised of ten black and white drawings in a variety of subject matter and media (a sketchbook is optional) or has passed the AP for drawing/studio arts.
Like Basic Drawing I, this course applies visual expression through the exploration of various black and white media. Still life, landscape, portrait and human figure, and other subjects will be drawn. Unlike the regular course, however, this Honors section will require more complex drawing assignments that involve a higher level of content development, as well as formal drawing skills beyond the rudimentary level. Representational and abstract drawing will be encouraged. There will also be required reading assignments, two guided field trips to New York City galleries and museums, and a class with a visiting artist. Students will be required to purchase art supplies.
