This course is a continuation of FIC-2126, Contemporary Drawing Studio: Observing the Moment. Our focus will be on developing an authentic, habitual drawing practice, achieving mastery through ritual practice and the production of a series. Students will observe the practices of an array of contemporary artists with a focus on the ways they balance chance and control, including Matthew Barney's "Drawing Restraint"; Carolee Schneemann's "Up To and Including Her Limits"; Kari Upson's graphite drawings; Janine Antoni's "Loving Care"; the collaboration of Marcel Dzama and Raymond Pettibon; and Kara Walker's large-scale, cutout ink drawings. Students will select their own guidelines in which to produce a new series of drawings. Best practices for documenting a drawing portfolio will also be discussed. PREREQUISITE: FIC-2126, Contemporary Drawing Studio, or equivalent.
