ART 140 - Drawing and Painting the Landscape (4 Cr.)

The course provides an introduction to making images of the landscape. Taking advantage of the diverse environment surrounding Goucher’s campus students will draw and paint urban, suburban, and rural landscapes. Beginning with basic drawing and painting skills, students will be exposed to the rich history of the subject including real, imaginary, and non-representational images. In addition, artists are expected to think critically about land use and environmental issues. The landscape itself is a text in which it is possible to read the natural and cultural history of a location. The ways we shape our environment reveal our priorities as a culture. Summer, offered 2011 and every 3 years. McConville.
