Drawing in the expanded field is a studio art course that focuses on exploring contemporary drawing across a wide range of subjects and media. Students will initially look closely at ideas pertaining to the pictorial and conceptual nature of the subject of drawing as a means to record, communicate and discover through mark making in wet and dry media. As the course progresses, students will study artists working with drawing in media other than traditional materials. Alternative ways of drawing will be explored through the use of video, assemblage, on-site interventions and digital technology.
SRISA studio courses will have personal and course materials to be purchased in Florence. Unless otherwise specified there is no need to bring consumable supplies with you. On the first day of class your professor will inform you of materials needed and where to get them in Florence.
