COURSE DESCRIPTION

Lectures and field sketching sessions are centered on drawing on location as the best way we have to increase our capacity to observe and to understand reality. An object, a tree, a person, cities or landscapes: during everyday life or while traveling, journaling and sketching from reality is a profound and lasting experience. While drawing, we learn to see and we can select information and highlight details better than we could with a camera. Students will discover Sorrento and its region of Campania, visiting Naples and surrounding archaeological sites,recording their observations through images and words in a travel sketchbook.Freehand drawing and location drawing as basic and complementary skills are recommended; not only among architects, visual artists, animators and graphic designers, but also in disciplines such as archaeology, history, zoology, botany, and geology. Classic drawing exercises, as suggested by authors such as Kimon Nicolaides or Betty Edwards, will also help beginners to break the ice with life drawing and get the most out of the experience.
