Today's drawing is considered in a broader spectrum of art practices and also respected in its own right, rather than as a traditionally-perceived preparation for other mediums. In the study of art, a student's learning experience will be enriched when the student becomes proficient in drawing. The Texas Tech School of Art has a very strong drawing program that cultivates this mindset. All undergraduate students start with a foundation of studio drawing courses, in which they learn how to better observe and interpret the world around them. Students from all over campus come to these classes to learn how to draw, and how to explore drawing to express personal interests. Drawing ability and concepts can be applied to various areas, such as numerous design disciplines, illustration, animation, advertising, art history, architecture, engineering, science, medicine, and psychology, in addition to fine art studio.
