AVSM 330 Advanced Freehand Drawing

Drawing is not a talent, it is a willingness to pay attention. The talented succeed through a desire to be specific and precise, to convey a connection to, a feel for, that being observed. Drawings, like buildings, are the result of a process involving an understanding of structural and surface conditions, the role of geometry, and a sensitivity to the effects of light. Exercises involving freehand drawing develop attentiveness and engagement, with special emphasis on the development of a personal sketchbook.
