11291 Freehand Illustration

6cp; 1hpw (lecture), 2hpw (tutorial)



This subject focuses on practical experience in freehand drawing, with emphasis placed on pencil as medium. The intent is to develop the relationship between what we see and how we graphically present these images. The lessons focus on a range of subject matter, including still life, but with an emphasis on architectural form and space. There is a session of life drawing which is a valuable class for investigating various sketching and sighting techniques. Techniques for sketching as well as more formally-finished rendering are covered.
