It's that time of year again when I share a bit of the work created last July by my college students in Italy. The group was amazing - pushing the possibilities of "urban sketching". My co-teacher this year, Kelly Murphy and I couldn't have been more pleased with the results - only a little which I share with you today.
What we see here, are selections from a few Final Projects - explorations of singular, narrow topics.
Ashley Caswell, a Maryland Institute College of Art student from Needham, Massachusetts, made lists comparing characteristic features of the city.
Chrissy Dreyer, a Dual Degree student of both Brown University and RISD, from Maryland, explored the passages of light, space, and color, through the city's narrow roads using acrylics.
Angela Hsieh, a student at RISD from Pennsylvania, explored the feeling of being lost in a foreign city.
Taylor Pendelton, from RISD and Massachusetts, explored bright colors and texture, creating an incredible collection of images in a short period of time.
Edward Yang, a RISD student from California, using each drawing as part of a cafe review, incorporating a great deal of writing.
Many more great works from other students can be found on the course's blog: Drawing Viterbo.
