Observational Drawing Skills for Architects & DesignersRegister Now!

3 Sessions: October 10th, 11th, and 12th; 6:30 P.M. - 9:00 P.M.

This class introduces techniques of rendering three-dimensional forms on a two-dimensional surface. The emphasis will be divided between the observation and analysis of light, the medium of vision, and how to suggest its effects in rendering, the essence of drawing. The course will introduce the basic principles of light-revealing forms, form shadow and cast shadow, reflected light and highlights, and, through a series of dark to light value studies, the rendering of geometric still-life shapes and plaster casts. Continual reference will be made to the human body, which is the main reference point to all classical design.
