This course is devoted to building your skills in observational drawing from life. Working directly from models, still-life arrangements and on-location, emphasis will be placed on recording firsthand visual experience using a range of drawing materials: pencil, pen, charcoal and others. Projects will focus on the problems of seeing and describing fully realized forms situated in space as revealed through set lighting. The techniques of representational drawing developed in this course can be applied to the full- range of visual-narrative form studied across Parsons.

Open to: Parsons First Year students, and others, space provided.
