DESN 111 Drawing As Seeing And Meaning

3 credits 90.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

Drawing is a mechanism for seeing and reacting to the world with greater clarity and understanding. This course is designed to develop the student’s ability to see, record, describe, and communicate through direct observational drawing. Assigned projects will explore process as well as the formal elements of line, gesture, space, scale, texture, shape, and tonal structure using a variety of drawing materials including pencil, charcoal, pen-and-ink and wash, among others. Projects range from the figure and still life to perspective and the environment. Students will keep a sketchbook to document visual explorations and thoughts outside the classroom.

Priority enrollment to School of Design majors.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
