In this course students will learn the fundamentals of preliminary sketching and shading by drawing from the ICAA’s collection of historically significant architectural casts. Students will complete an outline drawing of an antique cast with a focus on accuracy and relationship. Students will then block in shadows to prepare for the final stage of shading.
