The drawing program at Binghamton University is a working and thinking process that encompasses a series of open-ended interrelated problems dealing with seeing, visual language, vocabulary, organization and the necessary technical skills to produce such images. Intensifying perception and the comprehension of form, space, line, volume, texture, structure, movement, and composition are concepts continually emphasized throughout the various levels of the concentration.
These concepts are practiced through the instruction and use of various drawing materials and processes as means of understanding and expression in relation to aspects of still life, landscape, and the human form.
The final level, Special Studio Projects, encourages the student to develop their own personal direction and investigate that focus with the support of both individual and group critiques. Drawing concentration is housed in two large studios with great natural light.
