Sketchbook: Walking in the City (SB)

Pepa Santamaría, MFA.

On-site studio art course, based on drawing, designed for both art majors and non-art majors. Course positions students as informed “travelers” in Madrid, simultaneously exploring the city while offering personalized instruction in drawing and contact with the visual arts.

Students explore and sketch diverse sites — monuments, museums, neighborhoods, and gardens — developing drawing skills through the completion of a travel sketchbook. Students acquire visual vocabulary and greater conceptual understanding of art through drawing techniques, art history, and cultural theory, as well as museum visits.

Weekly review of and feedback on student work. Students produce a final drawing project directly related to their own interests and intellectual projects.
