Session Two- Saturday, October 25, 2014

This session covers the basics of emotional drawing skills of visualizing space through the medium of watercolor and charcoal.

The workshop will take place on the upper west of Manhattan. The historic 19th century architecture and the space between the city grid, is the object to be studied, drawn in form and detail.

The format begins with a one-hour morning lecture, moving into the first sketch of the day, outside, en plein air. Guided through the streets of New York by experienced licensed architectural instructors, Michael Sciarrillo, AIA from the Catholic University School of Architecture and Scott Aker, AIA from the University of Pennsylvania, the students will be taught one-on-one through a series of sequential handcrafted drawings. Each sketch made will introduce a new technique, culminating in a final cityscape composition at the end of the day. A detailed syllabus will sent upon purchase of the workshop, or emailed upon request.

The workshop is open to all levels of experience, from beginning to more advanced sketch artist. This course is created to bring together a group of varied background to learn together. For more experienced designers, and intermediate architects, this workshop will benefit you and will help augment your portfolio.

All required supplies will come with purchase of the workshop. The Institute for Architectural Research provides each student with the necessary drawing materials on the morning of each session; session two, a watercolor kit with watercolor paper and a charcoal pencil. At the conclusion of the workshop, the Institute will digitized everyone's drawings, and return them to each student in a portfolio ready format.

While there is a fee for this workshop, cost is free for members of the public with low income, this includes middle and high school students, or students currently enrolled in a University. Approval of free admissions will be review by the board of directors.
