Top Preparatory Year Programs in Drawing

Taking the appropriate preparatory programs can help you determine what degree you are suited for and should be working toward. Meeting the requirements may give you a feeling of self-worth, an array of skills and the knowledge needed to succeed in additional schooling.

Basic foundational classes should be taken to prepare for later coursework, but what are preparatory programs in drawing? The specific requirements may vary depending on the chosen institution and the art degree you are seeking. Basic competence in illustration, figure drawing, or perspective drawing may be needed. In addition to focus-specific skills, art history or the languages of old-world art masters, such as French or Italian, may be required. A course in portfolio preparation may be offered to help prepare you for future opportunities.

Developing skills in color theory or spatial organization may be useful in real-world applications. Thinking creatively or speaking a language could enhance volunteer work or community involvement, bringing enjoyment, personal fulfillment, and potential opportunities.

The cost of taking a preparatory program is often minimal compared to the cost of not getting a degree. The amount may vary depending on where you live, where the college or university you wish to enroll in is located, and whether you attend in person or choose to study online.

Before beginning preliminary courses, it could be helpful to know what could be expected in a career based on an art degree. With art history or language skills, a position as a museum curator or archeologist may appeal to you. Strong experience in perspective or figure drawing may qualify you for a job as a clothing designer or freelance illustrator. Advertising team member and graphic designer are positions that may be considered after taking drawing and lettering classes.

Preparatory courses in drawing are usually available in many institutions across the globe and may also be available online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
