DRWG-221 Drawing Poetics

3 Credits

Drawing Poetics investigates philosophical and practical methodologies of drawing from outside traditional fine art models. Through readings, studio practice, and discussions students will consider how practices in writing, poetry, choreography, music and handcrafts are analogous to drawing and may be used to understand one's practice. We will study how others define their art forms to further understand the rules and definition we have inherited for the act of drawing. From this perspective, students will then re-imagine how to define the act of drawing and what form their productions might take.
