This course is designed for the art major, addressing the formal and conceptual bases of drawing. Beginning with problems focusing on the essentials of line and mark, it progresses to shape and form. Each of these properties is explored with reference to space and value. Color is a minor component, with tonal range in black and white stressed. The media of charcoal, pencil, and ink are employed. Serious involvement is expected and additional outside work is required. The semester is devoted to developing a visual vocabulary and working attitude that are consistent with the major in art and serves to assist students well in advanced two- and three-dimensional courses. Course format consists of group and individual critiques, perceptual (including still-life and human figure, clothed and unclothed) and conceptual drawing, and other class activities. Materials such as paper, a portfolio, and the aforementioned media are required supplies. TA's teach the course with supervision from faculty.

It made me think: If I had my way, I'd banish all painted works in color for a year in order to give the art-loving public a greater opportunity to realize the magic that exists in drawings -- and in "old fashioned" black-and-white prints. I would then introduce them to the glories of drawing, seen through an exhibition such as this.
In fact, Bresdin's large and complex lithograph "The Good Samaritan" will go a long way toward convincing any skeptic that a strong black-and-white creative talent can make color seem superfluous. It will also prove that patience and technical skill canm pay off.
