This week, the first years pinned up their second drawing assignment for the year. Students were asked to build a model of a labyrinth and draw their created model. This is all part of the new drawing course taught by Federica Goffi. It’s quite a difference from the 12×18″ concrete wall sections previous Carleton students had to draw. There’s no 45 degree rendering law here. Some of them are already introducing colour into their work.
Change is clearly happening in the curriculum, but years of tradition seem to be lost in exchange. How do you feel about this year’s drawing course? What do first years think? What do the upper years think? Do upper years’ opinions even matter?
Please share your thoughts.
