AVA 212 - Narrative Drawing

Course Units: 1
Humans have been using drawing to tell stories for over 30,000 years, long before the invention of writing. In this course we will expand upon materials and methods introduced in Drawing 1, with an emphasis on narrative and expression. Students will begin to cultivate their own relationships to drawing in regard to mark-making, form, movement, composition, and illustration. Topics will include psychology of space, personal and political narratives, the costumed figure, time-based media, and drawing in response to film, literature, and music. Readings, outside projects, and group critique are required. A variety of dry and wet media will be explored including graphite, charcoal, ink, gesso, collage, and pastel.This course satisfies the Introductory Drawing requirement for the Studio Fine Arts major or minor. Contact instructor with questions. Prereq/Corequisite(s): AVA 100  , AVA 110  , AVA 215  , AVA 260  , AP Studio Art or instructors permission. CC: HUM, JCAD
