The graduate Drawing program includes intensive studies in both traditional and explorative drawing
approaches. Faculty who teach drawing represent aesthetically diverse philosophies and a range of technical
points of view. Facilities include a separate upper-level drawing studio and single/double occupancy graduate
studios. The drawing studios comprise over 2,200 square feet in Fairbanks Hall. Drawing faculty realize that a
fundamental definition of drawing is the act of mark-making on paper. However, the drawing program is equally
responsive to investigations that extend, for example, into areas of performance, installation, and multimedia.
Students are encouraged to engage in the discipline of drawing as both a preparatory medium and a legitimate end
in itself, for the creation of high-quality personal statements.
