This fundamental class focuses on the basics of set dressing, perspective & composition for both on-site sketching and from imagination. (Ticket fee will be required at some field trip locations). Most class sessions will meet on locations to study architecture, human space design, scale, weathering, and natural foliage/ landscape structures. This is a great class for beginners and intermediate students who wish to improve their drawing abilities before enrolling into the Environment Design course. 



This is a hybrid class that is streaming online using Zoom. 

( For the online students during the 4 field trip weeks, Ed will be uploading videos with short demo lectures, supplement drawing reference materials and explanation of the fieldtrip drawing assignments that he wish the online students to practice during the field trip weeks.

On the Friday before field trips, Ed will meet with the online students (Friday, 5PM-6PM PDT or times TBD) to go over the previous week HW crit, review the lecture for the week and kick off the online field trip assignment for online students. During the field trip weeks, Ed or his TA will be on Discord during set time to work together on the field trip assignment and to help answer additional questions.)
