Foundational drawing is the most important aspect of being a designer. This class is designed to take the lessons from Dynamic Sketching 1, and further the practice of applying those skills in onsite drawing while creating new concepts from particular themes.
There will be more exploration on the student’s part in going out and finding the required sites to draw. This is a heavier workload and more intensive training compared to the previous Dynamic Sketching 1 class. The student should be prepared to work coming into this class. It is preferred that the students locate a site for onsite drawing related to the weekly subject rather than drawing from reference.
ASSIGNMENTue each week. Expect to spend 8-10 hrs/wk viewing lectures, q&a, and time on assignments.
