ART360 Drawing Surrealism
Winter 2016 with Professor Scheier

  Drawing Surrealism ART360 places emphasis on process of discovery. Drawing exercises are based on late 19th century, 20th century, and contemporary methods. The working methods are elaborations on philosophical and artistic beliefs of the Symbolists, Nabi, Surrealist, Dadas, collaborative, conceptual, and socially engaged artists.  The sequence of drawing exercises will direct students toward individual work in last four weeks of the quarter.

  Please note :  Drawing Surrealism ART360c is not a drawing-from-observation course. ART360c does not require art historical study. ART360c helps young artist make intellectual and creative practice connection between earlier points in culture with a contemporary studio practice.
