Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1. (Synthesis Level) Independently create a linear perspective drawing by sketching basic geometric forms using perspective theory.
2. (Application Level) Name and illustrate in a drawing at least five parts of the classical shading theory.
3. (Evaluation Level) Independently observe and interpret the local value of observed objects in a drawing.
4. (Synthesis Level) Create a drawing from observation of actual objects depicting three dimensional space on a two dimensional surface.
5. (Synthesis Level) Incorporate the principles of design into the composition of a drawing of observed objects.
6. (Evaluation Level) Present a portfolio of selected original drawings exhibiting convincing representation of observed objects, correct application of perspective and shading theories, and independent use of design principles.
