ASSESSMENT & DISCUSSION:    
A series of timed drawing tasks that are designed to assess observational drawing skills, visual interpretation and image making strategies will be given during the first two weeks of class with a two-hour drawing assignment to be done independently at home.

Students will discuss their interests and goals with instructor.


CRITIQUE & EVALUATION:    
Discussion about drawing tasks and strategies, critique, and state-of-the-art visual technology are valuable tools that will be utilized by the instructor to enhance learning.

A written report evaluating artistic skills with recommendations for continued improvement will be provided at the end of the course.


RECOMMENDATION:    
Schools vary as to their criteria for acceptance and scholarship. For most, the student’s portfolio has the highest priority. Other factors include grades, personal integrity and teacher and professional recommendations.

A written recommendation for acceptance and merit scholarship will be provided at the end of course.


Individual instruction begins with a critique of work done previously, followed by customized student assignments that are designed to meet the student where he/she is. 


Students will eventually progress to completing artwork that may be included in a portfolio for acceptance to an accredited school of art.


There is a strong emphasis on developing observational drawing skills, composition, and personal expression.
