Drawing is an essential part of an artist's education. The drawing program
begins with the first courses in the foundation program and continues
to a BFA thesis for those students concentrating in drawing.
The curriculum in drawing includes traditional drawing
mediums, contemporary and nontraditional mediums, and aesthetic and
critical issues that relate to drawing practice.
All studio majors are expected to complete three semesters
of drawing including one semester of life drawing. A student choosing
drawing as a major medium will pursue drawing as the final product and
will continue through advanced and independent study classes. A BFA
student will complete a thesis semester that culminates with an exhibition
of their drawings.
