The creative process, from concept, to rough sketch, to completed artwork is the basis for the exploration of the fundamental concepts of art covered in DA 111a, Art Fundamentals.

This introductory course encourages students to improve their existing drawing skills and to experiment with new methods of expression. Students work with still life and the human form to explore the fundamental tools of line, texture, pattern, form, value, depth and composition. Human anatomy and proportion are also studied.

Images from art history, advertising, and contemporary media are analyzed to challenge students to see and create critically.
