In fine art, the term “drawing” may be defined as the linear realization of visual objects, concepts, emotions, and fantasies, including symbols and abstract forms. Drawing is considered as a graphic art that is characterized by an emphasis of form or shape, rather than mass and colour as in painting. Drawing is a little different form graphic printmaking processes, because, though a drawing may form the basis for replication, it is by its very nature, unique.

A drawing speaks to us over time and space.  The power of a drawing lies in, how the prints on a page shows the creative mind of the artist. Each drawing is a testimony to personal experience and thought. Whether it is a quick sketch, a doodle or a prolonged finished work.

This course deals with many subcategories of drawing including 3D or 2D modelling, special FX creation, animation in general, character drawing, game designing and interaction designing. Drawing includes eye-hand coordination, figure and still life drawing, use of media such as pen and ink, pencil, charcoal, pastel, brush etc and contextual, historical and stylistic aspects of drawing and some special projects.

The drawing course aims to explore drawing as an art form, in its fundamental concepts and as a means of expression.  By looking at the works of great masters we will consider how drawing has changed throughout history.  Through the practice and understanding of the elements of drawing, Students reach toward fluency and expression of their visual ideas and concepts.

The course is structured around the idea of how to see.  How to rend and how to express.  Different core concept of drawing will be introduced each class. Students will explore a range of mediums, from pencil, pen, charcoal, pastel, ink and watercolour. Drawing is the way through which almost every artist communicates.  The ability to translate an idea into a concrete form is both exciting and creative in its process.  As artists must continually hone this skill, both beginning and advanced students are welcome.
