Art: Drawing Landscapes
Drawing Landscapes is a half–unit course which introduces students to the basic skills needed to render realistically in pencil outdoor scenes which do not include people or buildings. Attention is paid to mastering the use of a pencil, proportion, shading, aerial and linear perspective, rendering 3-dimensional forms and composition. The goal is to help students capture through drawing whatever it is that they find interesting in a landscape.
Students are supplied with the appropriate drawing pencils and paper to complete the sketches and drawings needed for completion of the subject. These sketches and drawings require students to devote time and effort to mastering the basic drawing skills.
There are 4 examinations in Art: Drawing Landscapes. Blake, Landscape Drawing: Step-by-Step, Dover Publications.
