Landscape Representation II

Development of advanced skills of visual representation to communicate students' visions for urban ecological design including techniques used during the design process and for presentation.

Class description

This course has evolved from its catalog description into an advanced landscape drawing course, with an additional component focused on portfolio development. We will emphasize mark-making, composition, the use of perspective techniques, and dealing successfully with subject matter that includes trees, people, cars, and buildings.

Student learning goals

General method of instruction

Typically, there will be a lecture on the first day of class each week, with a review of the previous week's assignment as a group critique; and the second day of class each week will involve drawing from slides or in the field.

Recommended preparation

Class assignments and grading

Grades will be assigned based on the completeness of the student's work at the end of the term, and the degree to which the student succeeded in the assigned drawing exercises.


The information above is intended to be helpful in choosing courses. Because the instructor may further develop his/her plans for this course, its characteristics are subject to change without notice. In most cases, the official course syllabus will be distributed on the first day of class.
