Rendering in WashRegister Now!

3 Sessions: December 13th, 6:00 P.M - 9:00 P.M.; December 16th & 17th, 9:00 A.M - 5:00 P.M.

This course introduces the techniques of Beaux-arts wash rendering. Students will begin by learning the basic skills needed to produce a traditional ink wash rendering of a classical elevation. They will then develop an understanding of the qualities and characteristics of light, shade, shadow and reflected light, as well as a sensibility for how architectural geometries, forms, planes and profiles modulate light and shade and subsequently render form apparent. This course is designed to increase students’ command of the formal possibilities of space, mass, form and profile.
