The Drawing Program begins with a foundations course in drawing concepts which lays a strong foundation of accurate observation, appropriate use of media, and a vocabulary for critical thinking. Students learn to refine skills of representation and interpretation and are introduced to a variety of traditional and historical methods.

The sequence of six advanced drawing courses explores a wide variety of techniques and materials. Courses include both traditional and non-tradtional approaches. Students develop a broad range of skills and competencies in drawing media and are encouraged to develop personal, stylistic and conceptual approaches. Frequent critiques allow students to interact with each other and to develop critical thinking and vocabulary skills. More advanced students are provided with a dedicated work space. Studio experiences are supplemented by slide lectures and videos.
