Studio II: Drawing and Painting

Studio II focuses on advanced observational drawing and introduces the student to portraiture, perspective, and color theory. Drawing with wet media, such as ink and marker, prepares the student for work in watercolor and acrylic painting. Pastel work and collage, as well as mixed-media work, are also studied.

Students participate in group critique, keeping journals that chronicle their creative development and enable them to set tangible goals for their work. Digital drawing is introduced as another means of expression. Both contemporary and historical artists are studied in relation to studio work.

Prerequisites: Studio I, Ceramics I, or equivalent experience as demonstrated by portfolio submission
