Hosted by the New England Chapter | 7 AIA LUs and Credits Towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
The Newport Drawing Tour provides participants with practical knowledge of tradition as manifest in the architecture, urbanism and landscapes of this city of Port and Pleasure. Participants follow in the great tradition of architects and artists who have learned from drawing in situ. One may take a thousand photos of a subject and may not know it…but if one spends some time drawing the same object …you will have it in your mind forever. To draw is to see.
The program focuses study on the enduring vitality and continuity of the classical tradition through the means of observational and analytical drawing. The day will be spent drawing, in situ, at sites that underscore the relationship between buildings, the human figure, and their built and natural environment.
A variety of subjects will be sketched to examine the city and its environs as a work of civic art at all scales –from urban ensemble to individual buildings and architectural detail.
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.
