DrawingDrawing at Concordia is both a foundations requirement for art majors and a fine arts core curriculum exploration option for non-art majors.
Subjects for drawing assignments and portfolios range widely, from human forms, to still life objects, to the invented fantastic. Drawing media also vary as widely as do subjects, including dry media such as graphite and charcoal, and wet media of ink and paint.
You will find a comprehensive design to courses in drawing include beginning drawing; intermediate and advanced drawing; figure drawing; special studies and a senior project in drawing. Independent study in drawing is also available by arrangement.
Beginning drawing, offered every semester, will move you through a well-planned sequence of assignments that builds solid fundamental skills, and then evolves towards greater complexity of subjects and concepts.
In the intermediate and advanced courses, you will be offered opportunities to explore your particular interests in drawing. Recent explorations by some students have ranged into digital drawing on computers.
The drawing studio, located on the second floor of the Olin Building, is a bright and well-quipped, spacious studio. Faculty and adjuncts who are active artists with specialties in painting and printmaking, most notably David Boggs, Mike Marth and Heidi Goldberg, teach drawing courses.
