The OU students put the in-studio drawing lesson (that Daisy Williams delivered Monday) to work on site today. We met at ISU’s academic center and headed over to the nearby Teatro Marcello to draw. The students practiced the charcoal and pastel techniques they’ve been learning, while I used the mechanical pencil I had on hand.
My former colleague at Hampton University, Daisy Williams, is teaching two different classes in Rome this summer in addition to being the director of University of Oregon’s study abroad program in the ancient city. One is architecture studio and the other is a drawing course, pictured here.
Tomorrow, I’ll join the drawing course for a morning outing… so I’d better hit the sack now!
Spent a lovely week in Paris, much of it with Hampton University’s architecture program. I’ve attached a few of the pics I snapped with my iPhone. I’m back in Dublin now, and getting around to downloading the photos from my Nikon. The photos will help me reminisce of my travels once I head back to the States. I might even have time to write something meaningful on my blog once again….
For now, pictures will have to do!
I’d never been to Uzes, France even though some of my Hampton University architecture students had. Uzes is home of the famous urbanist, Leon Krier, though we didn’t get to meet him there this year. We often use his book, The Architecture of Community, in my Urban Theory class.
Visiting Uzes made for a wonderful day of learning and exploring. I even wrapped with two decent sketches of my own.
