Give your drawing, illustration and painting interests a comprehensive studio foundation by completing our endorsement in Drawing. Develop proficiency and sophistication in depicting three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface in quick studies and sustained compositions. Build a portfolio of work that reflects nuanced and diverse approaches to compositional and spatial elements in drawing, expressive drawing techniques, alternative materials, and drawing as a research and communication tool for projects in other disciplines.
