Drawing and Building Form

drawing and building form

FNDT160   3 credits
Students study form in both two-dimensional rendering and three-dimensional building through drawing and building objects.  Skills of relational measurement, compositional organization, and the placement of form in space inform both drawing and form-building activities.  Drawing techniques such as perspective and isometric projection facilitate successful form generation.

 

 

Life Drawing II

FNDT182     3 credits
Structural drawing and perceptual skills are expanded through study of the figure’s relation to environment, life-scale, movement, and draping.  Students discover individual sensibilities of mark-making and aspects of personal vision through a variety of traditional and experimental drawing media and techniques. Prerequisite:  FNDT 180 Life Drawing I.

Form and Space
