2017 ICAA Rome Drawing Tour
Examine the classical tradition in Rome through drawing and watercolor: Attend the Christopher H. Browne 2017 ICAA Rome Drawing Tour taking place June 3-10. This Institute of Classical Architecture & Art tour provides participants practical knowledge of the classical tradition as manifested in the architecture, urbanism and landscapes of Rome.
Drawing is a tool for understanding the world around you. It provides one with a way of thinking about the things they see. During the course of this drawing tour participants will undertake the challenge of developing their skills in representing complex three-dimensional forms and examine the works of artists and architects while seeing what they saw in-situ throughout the city of Rome.
The class will make use of a variety of media and techniques in the undertaking of drawings that will entail a variety of scales from the human figure, building detail, building, piazza and city. Particular attention will be placed on perspective, especially two point views, lighting, shades and shadow.
Tuition & Fees
Tuition for the 2017 ICAA Rome Drawing Tour is $2,700 ($2,600 for ICAA members). Travel to and from Rome and accommodation for the duration of the course is not included in the cost.
