The School of Architecture & Design at the Lebanese American University is now accepting applications for an Adjunct Faculty position, for the academic year 2024-2025, on its Beirut Campus. We are seeking faculty to teach drawing courses in the Foundation Year. Applicants should have prior experience in teaching, and would be required to teach the following courses:
FND201 Drawing for Foundation [1–4, 3Cr.]
The purpose of this course is to discover the exploratory potential of visualizing thinking through hand drawing. Students’ skills in drawing as mimesis and as perception are emphasized. The course delves into traditional and conceptual transcription, using drawing as a primary mode of inquiry and perception. Through different drawing exercises, students will be introduced to the study of chiaroscuro, perspective, nature, object, materials, textures and principles of composition. Each student will be expected to complete a black book series that demonstrates their mastery of basic drawing skills.
ART222 Figure Drawing [1-4, 3Cr.]
This course explores the structural and muscular systems of the human body with emphasis upon proportion, formal relations, chiaroscuro, contour, volume, and foreshortening. This course aims at producing full-fledged compositions in various drawing media. Throughout the course, students develop the figure in different spatial situations as an exploration of expression in drawing. They will be exposed to questions of aesthetics, problem solving in composition, and the use of appropriate materials.
