Emily Carr University of Art + Design and Coquitlam School District #43 are pleased to announce the continuation of a partnership that will see ECU offer a first year (Foundation studio course) at Gleneagle Secondary School in Fall 2012.
This course will be available to qualified Grade 12 students or recent graduates from any of the secondary schools in District #43. The course will carry degree credit at Emily Carr University and transfer credit to other Fine Art programs, and will be of interest to students considering post secondary studies in Visual Art, Media Art or Design. The course will be particularly beneficial to those students developing a portfolio for admission to post-secondary programs.
FNDT 106 Drawing & 2D Language
Day and Time: Tuesdays, 6 – 9pm
Location: Gleneagle Secondary School
Dates: September 11 to December 18, 2012
This course introduces students to the methods, materials and concepts of drawing, both as a visual language and as a tool for enhancing perceptual awareness. While investigating process and developing a critical vocabulary, students will begin to acquire the skills to translate immediate observation and ideas into 2-dimensional form. In-class projects and assignments will encompass various aspects of drawing, while visual presentations and class discussion will introduce students to contemporary and historical ideas of art and design.
