ADSA 208 - Drawing In Florence


Credits: Three (3)
Prerequisite: Permission of Instructor
This course requires observational drawing from original monuments of Italian art, architecture, culture and history from Etruscan, Roman, Medieval, Renaissance and modern times. Emphasis is on perceptual drawing on-site to develop and apply drawing skills, to allow for creative expression, and to document and enhance the study abroad experience while living independently in Florence and experiencing Italian culture firsthand. In addition, students have opportunities to visit Rome, Venice, Siena, San Gimignano, Fiesole and other historic villages and towns in Italy, and drawing of content related to these trips is strongly encouraged. ADSA 208 is for students with little or no background in drawing or art history, but who have an interest in drawing and documenting their experiences in a travel journal.
