Drawing has evolved from traditional media. It is no longer defined in the art historical terms of paper and charcoal. Indeed, now we define a “drawing” may now cross disciplines and include many non-traditional media. This is especially true when we consider the blurred boundaries between drawing and painting. This course will explore the ways in which a non-traditional drawing surface, mylar (formerly used by architects for their “reproducibles” and archival work), to see how this material can be deployed to work with some traditional drawing media (ink and graphite) to explore new ways to express narrative, memory and time.
