Segovia- A Drawing Diary

This course is expected to run but has not yet been scheduled.

Course Description

Explore, remember, and record your impressions of Segovia. First we will learn basics of drawing and watercolor from observation, including contour, shading, composition and color, as well as perspective. Sometimes you will use a camera, although a camera is not required.

Through drawing, you will learn to observe and record in detail. After a foundational week, we will locate interesting places to draw and spend the bulk of our time studying these places through drawing. You may also do some writing. We will work with watercolor and/or markers, using light and shadow to create mood and expression, editing to capture essentials, adding word and collage.

Students will know basics of observational drawing, will know how to design a page, will have some instruction in color, and will have learned how to look at a new place in depth and notice details they would not have seen before. Drawing is a "slow" method of knowing a place or thing. At the end of the course students will have a concrete visual and literary record of Segovia.

This course is only open to students enrolled in Pre-College Global Programs.
