Drawing on Location

COMD 467


Draw everything from dinosaur bones to tall ships and broaden your range as an illustrator or designer! This course will introduce students to drawing on site and using that experience to add to their graphic communication skills and vocabulary. We'll work with drawing on location as the art form of reportage as well as a point of departure for project work. You will visit various locations around the city during the semester, including Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Chinatown, the Museum of Natural History, Times Square, the Metropolitan Museum and others. You'll not only draw these places but also learn to take advantage of what New York City has to offer artists. Students will have short weekly assignments for the first half of the semester and create a self-directed personal assignment for the second half. You do not have to be a great draftsman to take Location Drawing, but you will definitely be a better one when you finish the class!
