Drawing has a primal and elemental character as the earliest form of image making. The idea and execution of drawing has remained relatively unchanged for thousands of years connecting us in an unbroken line from the magical cave drawings from Neolithic times to the present.
The drawing program encourages students to explore the two principle aspects in contemporary drawing. The first being conceptual where line as an abstract mark evocates the medium’s primitive origins thereby connecting us to our ancestors. And the other, the elaborate cultured aspect of drawing with it focus on the area of human experience that has become associated with intimacy, immediacy, history, memory, and narrative.
The drawing process can then be seen as a dynamic force that encourages concentration, introspection, and revision as an idea or image takes shape becoming the basic foundation for all the visual arts.
