ART 38800 Special Topics: Advanced On-Site Drawing (GE-HC:Arts) (GE-FA)

The purpose of the course is to refine basic drawing skills through direct observation of on-site subjects available only in a Plein-aire class. Students will explore a variety of different techniques and subjects. The student should aspire to develop on the fly visual problem solving skills while developing a plastic proficiency. Studying linear perspective where it was developed is a once in a life time experience and should eventually be experienced by all serious art students. Artists have traveled into the field for hundreds of years to bring back to the studio information that could not be found elsewhere. Obviously our travel will take us to Florence the home of the Renaissance and some major artistic giants.
