Rome Sketchbook (for BFA majors)

  • Course Number: 3512
  • Subject: Art
  • Semester(s) Offered: Fall, Spring, Summer
  • Credit Hours: 3
  • Description:

    Participants record their observations in sketchbook form on daily outings to significant sites. Rome - incomparably rich historically and visually - provides a host of subjects ideal for improving drawing technique. The concentration required in drawing directly from observation leads to a deeper understanding of the city's forms.

  • Special Notes:

    This course includes a day-long academic excursion outside of Rome. The exact location will be announced in the course schedule. Students who are not BFA majors should enroll in ART 1010.

  • Cross-listings:

    ART 2900 (Honors)

  • Pre-requisites:

    Students who register for this course are expected to have some familiarity (or experience) with the fundamentals of drawing. Support will be offered, but this is not a “learning to draw” class.
