• All Levels
  • Drawing

Field sketching is closely connected to the education of architects and designers. Through this medium, we can deconstruct complex facades, analyze assembly and proportional systems, express the attributes of a particular place, and translate observations onto paper. The class will seek to help students think through drawing, employ sketching as an analytical tool for learning, and continue to enrich the tradition of field sketching.
