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.
