Since the Renaissance, architects have sketched and measured all facets of architecture in portable bound books. Architects have used the sketchbook to record historical artifact in both pictorial representational, three-dimension sketches, and carefully measured drawings drawn to scale.
This course will introduce the student to a method of sketchbook drawing that is focused on accurately measured drawings of accessible architectural details, drawn-to-scale in a sketchbook. The subject for study for the In-Person field class will be various structures at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038
