ART 1505 Drawing Rome

Course description

(summer only) This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

The course introduces students to methods of representing space and form through a study and application of perspective and the effects of light and shade. Uses of line, tone, and color will be investigated. The subject is the city of Rome: its public spaces, churches, museums, archaeological zones, and the residents and visitors who occupy it. A variety of materials are used including pencil, ink, charcoal, pastel and collage. With the exception of one or two in-studio sessions, all work will be done onsite in Rome. Course meets four weeks, five times per week.

Counts as in/out-of-college elective for B.F.A. students. Offered in Rome.
