Composition and drawing exercises from natural and non-natural pattern, extended design concept, color composition and "basic" drawing (Bauhaus) exercises, drawing with light shading, drawing with flat form, painting and drawing using photography. Use of drawing and painting materials, graphite, Chinese ink, acrylics and oil paints, watercolors. Extended forms of painting such as collages, photography, compositions with "out-painting" materials. Students are also invited to record and present in text their thoughts on their involvement during the art process.
