Drawing I
Instructor: Lauren A. Toomer 

In the course, students explore traditional and non-traditional drawing techniques and principles. Students gain a greater working knowledge of line, shape, perspective, proportion, volume, and composition. Students experiment with drawing as an end in itself, while also gaining historical awareness of artists who have worked in this manner. Figure drawing, experimental, and personal imagery are also incorporated; honing individual style is encouraged.

Drawing II
Instructor: Enrique Chagoya
TA: Gregory Rick

Students explore various advanced and experimental drawing techniques, as well as new definitions on drawing as an exercise to develop new ways of seeing, to further free expressive form without being self-conscious. The focus of the class is to discover creative ways of expression that are personal and different for every student. 

Drawing is the most basic and direct visual art media since ancient history. It is more open to definitions than many other forms of artistic expression. It is a form of visual thinking, and end in itself, but it could also be a means to plan other projects. On the first day of instruction, students discuss this quality unique to this friendly and primal way of expression.

Portraiture and Facial Anatomy for Artists (Art Studio 139 / Surgery 241)
Instructor: Lauren A. Toomer

Portraiture and Facial Anatomy for Artists blends art and anatomy as students practice the art of portraiture and the underlying structures of the face. Weekly lectures and studio projects highlight the intersections between human anatomy and art. Traditional and contemporary drawing techniques are explored as students experiment with new ways of translating the human face's internal and external structures into a visual language of marks. Plastic models, dry bones, cadaveric (Donor) specimens, and reference images are used for the remote-sessions. The use of correct art and anatomical terminology to describe structures and their relationship are taught.
