Course Description

This is an intermediate course in drawing, open to landscape, urban design, and architecture students (also MDes). The initial intent of the class is to teach students to see, to translate the "seen" into the language of drawing, and to completely immerse students in this process. Through a series of exercises, drawing from nature (on site) and from the model, the student will begin to experience line, shape, values, form, and a feeling of space. Having acquired these tools we will go on to problems of representing various stages in the design process. The students will experience the metamorphosis of an idea from rough sketch to finished drawing, including doing many free hand perspectives. We will explore a range of drawing media: charcoal, graphite, colored pencil, pastel, and watercolor. The hope is to develop new modes of working to think through design problems in studio. This includes experimentation with combining hand drawing and computer generated images. Throughout the class we will be studying the work of artists, architects, and designers from all periods of history. Hopefully, we can expect visits from several outside artists to enliven the class with discussion of their work and with demonstrations. Visits to artist's studios, galleries, museums, and various sites are also anticipated. Since we will be drawing at our first class meeting, students need to bring the following materials to the first class: - 18' x 24' Newsprint Pad (not slick) - Vine Charcoal: hard & medium - Kneaded Eraser - Emery Board Pad- Soft Graphite Pencil & Small Pad
