ARCH 201 – Basic Drawing


A freehand studio drawing course limited to pencil and pen, this introductory class concentrates upon seeing, describing, and analyzing form through linear graphic means. Though intended primarily for students considering a design-related career, it is open to students from any discipline wishing to improve their visual literacy. The first half of the course—unbiased toward a particular art—focuses upon understanding the role of line in creating form. Principles of orthographic and perspective projection are introduced in the second half of the semester.
