This class will help students familiarize themselves with basic architectural forms that scenic artists must
understand and be able to draw. Students will copy a series of classical ornaments using charcoal, graphite,
and chalk on paper. Advanced students can paint en grisaille on muslin panels.
When the 2 sessions of this class are over, students will have a collection of architectural sketches for the portfolio and will have developed a wider visual reference of the elements of classical Western architecture. Richard Prouse is an 829 lead artist who excels in drawing and painting backdrops, as well as sculpting, costuming, designing, jewelry-making, and ballroom dancing.
