Much Ado About Nothing: Spatial Concepts in Visual Thought
Hosted by the Philadelphia Chapter | 3 CE AIA LUs
Kick off the fall season with artist Patrick Connors and the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Philadelphia Chapter for a breakfast presentation and workshop on linear perspective. The “most delightful and noble art” of linear perspective has long benefited artists of diverse disciplines in the pursuit of making their imaginations manifest in paintings, sculpture, drawings, and architecture. In an age of camera-conditioned aesthetics and computer-generated imagery, perspective offers an alternative experience to those derived from machine or technology, one directly based on human experience. Learn some of the basic concepts and techniques that combine to create depth in an image, discuss topics such as foreshortening and value, and acquire new tools that can be used to construct a scene in linear perspective.
This event is hosted by an ICAA Chapter. Please check the Chapter website, or contact the Chapter directly, for the most up-to-date details including dates, times, and pricing.
