What is drawing? Drawing can be the act of investigating, recounting, recording, preparing, visualizing, or describing, abstract thoughts and depictions onto a surface. It is a direct means of communication and a common practice among all disciplines. Interpretations of drawing are ever expanding.Through an emotive and analytical materialist study and thematic prompts, this course will explore the potential of established additive and subtractive mark making techniques including; Cross-Hatching, Contour Lines, Stippling, Scribbling, Blending, Feathering, Dots, Accent Lines, Perspective, Anamorphic drawing, Diagrammatic Lines, Geometric Lines, Erasure, Engraving and Scratching. Thematic prompts will approach themes of Scale and Contrast, Systems and Repetition, Spatial Configurations, Time and Memory, Power and Activism, Perception, Palimpsest, Motion, Relatability and Impermanence. Weekly curated viewings of works by Artists includes: David Musgrave, Julie Mihiretu, Firelei Báez, Anna Lea Hucht, Vija Celmins, Joel Daniel Phillips, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Anne Lindberg, Erin Riley, Vik Muniz, Cai Guo Qiang, Robin Rhode, Nidhal Chamekh, Dana Awartani, Richard Lewer, and J. Ariadhitya Pramuhendra will be discussed. This course encourages an innovative approach to drawing, emphasizing risk taking, chance and the use of unexpected materials. In dialogue with contemporary drawing practices, this class welcomes work relevant to each student’s subject of interest. Through the use of both analog and digital practices, it will provide students with skills that can be applied to a range of platforms beyond the classroom, including stop motion and animation.

This course emphasizes the unique sculptural processes and materiality of clay. Delicately precious, yet incredibly strong, it enlivens our sense of touch, yet heightens our sense of caution. This everyday material is a part of our collective consciousness. This rich history provides a backdrop to frame contemporary investigations into ritual, objecthood and artistic expression. This course will discuss many ceramic techniques, digging deeply into hand building which can easily be done through remote learning and support from the on-campus Making Center. Students are encouraged to experiment with different strategies, including installation work, mixed-media projects, and a variety of experimental ceramic techniques.
