Section Description

The core of this course will be our on-site drawing sessions in the field. Along the river, at UVM natural areas, in the woodlands, fields and gardens of the Intervale we will cover a range of methods and tools for translating what we observe into meaningful graphic form. Our practice will be informed by the study of the prints, journals, sketchbooks and drawings of natural history, botanical and landscape artists. We will also explore and employ some of the distinctive pictorial conventions of East-Asian and western landscape traditions. Students will be guided in advancing their confidence in drawing skills with which they will produce a portfolio of drawings and a final graphic project. Enrollment Limit: 15.
