ART 212 Abstract Drawing
This course explores the possibilities of drawing that are based on conceptual rather than perceptual knowledge. A wide variety of conceptual sources will be introduced, such as variations of spatial components; non-figurative images based on biomorphic or gestural motifs; compositional dynamics; tonal and color explorations; and the variation of mark as an expressive element. A wide variety of experimentation with surfaces, materials, and applications will be encouraged. Emphasis will also be placed on the selection of an idea both in terms of process and materials. The development of abstraction in the 20th century and relevant major artists will be studied and used for reference. Culture: Art. Lab fee.
