Two courses in drawing are required of all undergraduate art students. Along with 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional design classes, drawing forms the foundation for all other studio studies. Classes concentrate on linear perspective, light and shade, composition, and visual perceptual development. Students work with still life, the human figure, and visual/ aesthetic problem solving.
Elective drawing courses are available in illustration, human anatomy drawing, and drawing and painting the human head. Drawing majors pursue careers in fine art or illustration in markets such as editorial, book covers, medical illustration, CD/album covers, children's book illustration, or mural painting.
