IILLU 3130 City Sketchbook

An illustrator can be a roving reporter with a pencil and a pad and be called a sketching journalist. That is exactly what this class is about, with the city as the field! Going on site to document the happenings in Cambridge and, Boston Metro areas alike, offers a unique perspective of the people, the buildings, and the surroundings. Students will experiment with a broad mix of media, from pen and ink, watercolor, markers, colored pencil and a variety of unique papers.
