Drawing at Sea II (Intermediate Drawing) This course is intended for students who have previously completed a college level drawing class (either Introduction to Drawing or Introduction to Figure Drawing). Building on the principles of basic drawing, students will further investigate drawing from observation and creating the illusion of 3-dimensional form and space on a 2-dimensional surface.  Students will study formal elements of composition, spatial relationships, line quality, gesture, value, contrast, and texture.  Assignments will include line drawings and tonal drawings.  Color will be introduced using watercolor pencils. Subject matter will include still life, landscape, architectural structures, and figure drawing.  Themes such as hardship, abundance, beauty, and humor will be incorporated into drawing assignments.  As the voyage progresses, students will document and incorporate visual information from their in-country experiences into their classroom drawing assignments. We will study the work of contemporary artists and old masters that have documented and drawn inspiration from their travels.  Examples include Eugene Delacroix, Dan Eldon, David Hockney, Lockwood De Forest, and John Singer Sargent.
