Rome Architectural Sketchbook is a multidisciplinary course that explores the various components of architecture in Rome, allowing you to focus on sites, design and visual sketching.
Together with your classmate, having different profiles and artistic skills, you will work on site in various places reflecting diverse periods of art, architecture and history of Rome. The course combines the observation of the historic and contemporary context of the locations, with the development of the creative process and refining of sketching techniques and personal style.
Traditional sketching methodologies and techniques, such as visual sketching and illustration layout as well as photo research and interior design, will be deepened during the program and enhanced by visits to Roman sites and architectural spaces. As Final Project you will complete a personal sketchbook using different representation techniques such as video, photography or modelling.
The course is articulated in 2 modules.
During the first part, based on Architectural Sketching, you will learn the basic sketching techniques while visiting the most important historical sites and monuments. Under the guidance of skilled teachers, you will explore the city, drawing, photographing, interpreting everything that is proposed and presented to you.
During the second part, Representation Techniques, you are required to choose between the following three specializations: Fine Arts, Model Making, and Video Production and Photography. The course continues with an in-depth study of the chosen subject and by the end of the course, together with your classmates, you will present your portfolio as well as your thoughts and personal growth during this three week experience.
Throughout the course, you will meet with diverse professionals in the field as part of traditional lecture or showroom visits.
