        Summer Drawing (Virtual SU 2023)

        • Throughout the class, there will be regular homework assignments that will enhance the class work. Students are expected to avail themselves of the Fine Arts library on a daily basis. Assignments to research various historical artists and time periods will occur regularly followed by class discussion. 
        • A final portfolio of 25–30 finished drawings will be the primary basis for the grade. Regular critiques of work done in class and for homework will give the student a clear sense of their progress. 

        Introduction to Painting

        • Students must buy their own supplies for studio classes. Supplies for most studio classes cost $50 to $200.
        • Students are required to maintain a portfolio of sketches, notes, and completed artworks. 
        • Exhibitions will take place throughout the semester at the discretion of the instructor. 
        • Students can anticipate a minimum of five hours of studio/research per week in addition to scheduled class meetings. 

        Introduction to Print Media

        In order to create a respectful, productive, safe and efficient learning environment, all students are expected to:

        • Read the syllabus carefully and have it available during class.
        • Attend and participate in all demos. Take notes and ask questions during all instruction, including safety and cleanup demos.
        • Have materials and assignments/projects/sourcebooks completed on time.
        • Use studio time productively and efficiently — this is especially important during the summer semester due to limited studio access times.

        Imagining Rome: Art Studio and Creative Writing Workshops in Italy (Not offered in SU 2023)

        Imagining Rome is designed for both Cornell students and students of other institutions, at any level of expertise, interested in studying writing or studio art at Cornell's teaching facility in the historic city center of Rome.

        Cornell undergraduates should consult with their academic advisors before choosing classes in the Rome program. Undergraduates from other colleges and universities should discuss the courses and the program with their own academic advisors to discover how the Cornell transfer credits might be counted. Graduate students should consult with their special committee chairs or thesis advisors.
