CDID 803 Drawing Fundamentals

Course series
Communication & Design Program Area

Duration: 36 Hours
Fee: $645.12* (Payment in full is required at time of enrolment; HST Included.)

Come test the theory: Everyone can draw! Everyone has the instinct toward language - verbal and visual. This course teaches the visual "language" that is natural to us all. It begins at the most rudimentary level and progresses through each of the developmental stages that lead to image-making skill. A series of exercises taken in sequence will build the powers of observation needed to transform a three-dimensional subject into a two-dimensional symbol. Learn the fundamentals of gesture, line, light and shade, and space. Commitment to weekly practice will determine the level of progress. The course objective is to make drawing a part of everyday life.

Note: Course content is applicable to both fine art and commercial art fields.

Supplies and materials to be purchased by the student: Participants are responsible for purchase of materials (cost approximately $70). No supplies are necessary at the first class.
