Overview

As Drawing majors at Pratt Institute, students will be challenged to explore all possibilities of what a drawing can be and which conceptual approaches, tools, and techniques best convey their ideas and intentions.

Drawing can be a direct, spontaneous, and immediate record made in real time or it can be a calculated, methodical, and precise work executed by a computer program. Drawing reveals thoughts, ideas, and relationships drawn from observation, interpretation, and imagination. Drawing cuts across cultures, histories, and national boundaries. In the hands of artists like Agnes Martin, William Kentridge, and Kara Walker, drawing has achieved recognition as a primary art form in itself.

Learning outcomes

Pratt’s highly regarded faculty of New York-based artists and educators insures that students will be exposed to a range of approaches and methods of drawing in a contemporary critical context. The city’s world-class museums, galleries, artists’ studios, and alternative spaces function as an extension of Pratt’s classrooms and studios where students will find a community of like-minded peers and mentors invested in fostering their growth as professional artists.
