This unit explores approaches to drawing open air spaces including urban, rural, recreational and wilderness environments. Drawing tutorials that address the representation of atmospheric conditions, ephemerality, viewing points, perspectival conundrums, dynamic elements (including movement events within spaces and movement of the observer) will be presented within a context that considers the techniques and traditions of recording and responding to place(s). Classes include practical drawing investigations developed from site visits to various locations in the Tamar valley region. The unit encourages forward looking creative responses to the history of landscape drawing, the source of its philosophical approaches and its impact on the development of environmental consciousness.
