Spring 2023
Credit Hours: 

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.

Prior to Fall 2019, this course was Painting, Drawing and Sculpture 3351.
