    The key to drawing architecture is acquiring the ability to capture the essence of what you are seeing in front of you, without having to delineate every minute detail. The importance of this essence cannot be overstated. With this in mind, we begin our workshop by breaking down the individual forms of architecture and their relation to the whole.

    Artists will be guided through the approach and technique of ink wash and the development of an architectural drawing from life over the course of five days. Daily individual critiques will be aimed at satisfying the goals of each artist. Linear perspective will be discussed at length as it pertains to simple geometry and the constructed environment. Discussions on composition, aesthetics, value hierarchy and line quality will be continuous throughout.

    This workshop will be held outdoors at Bryant Park focusing on the New York Public Library. On rainy days, the workshop may be held in the studios at Grand Central Atelier. Students will be notified in advance.
