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.
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.
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.
