We will work directly from life. Out-of-class trips will be frequent to access natural subject matter not found in the classroom.

Requisite: One of Drawing 1, Painting 1, or Sculpture1 (because of the diversity of subject and materials used). Limited to 8 students. Spring semester. Senior Resident Artist Gloman.

If Overenrolled: give preference to art, art history, architecture and other creative disciplines
