This class is the sequel to Drawing 1 in Core. It focuses on all the issues of drawing: line, space, composition, value, light and shadow, and the ability to draw what is seen with accuracy. The class will have an emphasis on life drawing and is a requirement for majors in Painting, Drawing and Printmaking.

How does one build a narrative? How do you compose a visual story within the picture plane? This class will create projects that address these questions as well as introducing, throughslides, books and visual images, a bevy of artists who use narrative in their own work. Drawing and painting especiallylend themselves to telling a story. Those stories may derivefrom personal experience, political or social critique, fantasy or irony. They might take the form of cartoon imagery, graffiti, collage, or realism.
