This course will teach the fundamentals of drawing and design, with emphasis on the methods employed by artists, advertisers, and governments to manipulate people visually. Weekly meetings will serve as workshops to learn drawing skills and provide support so that students are better able to articulate their ideas. Discussions on the roles that art and artists play in society, in advertising and propaganda will be encouraged, but if you just want to learn to draw or improve your existing skills, participation is not required. Independent study available.
