Drawing courses at Holy Cross explore a wide range of process and media. Drawing Fundamentals introduces basic drawing concepts such as line, shape, composition, value, perspective and gesture. While the emphasis is primarily on observational methods, the students do engage in exercises that use imagination and develop their individual ideas. A wide range of media is used. Students are introduced to a variety of approaches to concepts by viewing a range of drawings by artists both contemporary and historical. Life Drawing continues an intensive study of "drawing from observation" by using the figure as a continuous study. Advanced Drawing pushes the student to develop and articulate their ideas in drawing using more contemporary approaches and materials.
