This beginning course focuses on basic freehand drawing and drafting. All the components essential to good drawing are presented and discussed. Working almost exclusively in black-and-white, students embark on a series of exercises that introduce important visual concepts -- composition and design, contour and line, proportion and scale, plan and section, form and space, tone and shadows -- plus the ability to create drawings that are rich in both information and psychological content. This class is based on the USA standard measurements of feet and inches and not the international metric system. Media covered include a variety of sketching and drafting tools.
