  • Overview

    This course imparts the fundamentals of drawing in a variety of black and white as well as color media on a number of surfaces. Enrollees learn the basics of rendering, perspective and expressive mark-making in a series of exercises and gradually scaled projects. Acquired skills include an array of media techniques. Student articulation of drawing and design terminology in regular studio critiques are an important component of the process. On-site visits to Roman venues staging exhibitions of drawings may be included as an instructional activity. Students are required to purchase their own material needed for the course. Students are responsible for all entry fees.
