perceiving and communicating
The drawing class I am teaching this semester is titled Perception and Communication. It is named this way as it is vital that designers not only be able to dream up wonderful ideas, but also be able to communicate them on paper. Right now my students are in the middle of a project where they are documenting several buildings on campus. They must develop perspectives filled with entourage...people, cars, plants, furniture, trash recepticles...you name it. Today, we spent part of the class period drawing one another in 60-second and 30-second poses in an effort to develop quick, effective methods of drawing the "scale figures" that will fill our spaces.
