Course Outline
1. Line drawings from still-life composition a. Non-spatial lineal organization. b. Spatial � description of line as movement in space. 2. Restricted value (tone) definition of shapes taken from still life (volume) 3. Redistribution of value (tone) relationships. 4. Static composition: close value, stable shapes. 5. Dynamic composition: high contrast value, active shapes. 6. Composition with static and dynamic balance. 7. Composition with pattern versus mass relationships. 8. Equivocal shapes composition.

Student Learning Outcomes

Demonstrate understanding of the process of abstraction through scale manipulation.

Demonstrate understanding of use of value (tone) relationship expressed by objects in space (figure and ground).

Develop drawings which possess qualities of content, concept, and individual interpretation.

Execute structure through pattern and motif to achieve compositional unity.
