Introduction to fundamental drawing principles and methods utilized in landscape architectural design and representation applications. Topics covered include: freehand sketching, field observation diagrams and sketches, freehand and constructed perspectives, plan and section view drawings, shade and shadow, color, design process drawings, and presentation layout.

This revised course is delivered in the summer session 2 prior to the start of the regular academic year; intended for newly admitted Master of Landscape Architecture students seeking a first professional degree.  The main purpose of this class is to provide students, particularly those having little or no prior drawing or design experience, the basic preparatory drawing tools required for their first design studio, LAR 501, in the fall semester.

This is an existing course for which learning outcomes, outline, and schedule have been modified. No new resources are required.

Students will learn to think creatively using hand drawn media. Students will also enhance their abilities to observe, document, and manipulate landscape conditions through hand drawn media. Students will focus on technical representation skills to be used in subsequent landscape architecture and other disciplines' studio and seminar courses and eventual professional practice.


Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, students will be able to:


Apply fundamental drawing and representation principles and methods including free hand sketching, plan and section view drawings, freehand and constructed perspectives, presentation layout, color, shade and shadow, and design process diagramming; and


Critically assess the effectiveness of drawings to represent and communicate landscapes, objects, relationships, and spatial and theoretical relationships.

mlnosbis 2/20/2018:
-This is not a minor action. Please change action type to "major" and complete all required fields.
-The sentence in the prereq field should be moved to the course description. This cannot be coded, unless you want to add a formal restriction for students in track 3. They will be able to enroll, and anyone else will need to obtain departmental approval.
-Syllabus should include full instructor contact information (including phone number).
-Syllabus should include a breakdown of how grades are determined. Listing the PRR is not enough. Explain how assignments will be graded and what constitutes each letter grade. Example: A+ = ____, A = ____, etc.
-The schedule on the syllabus lists 6 weeks. Please revise so it is clear that this is a 5 week course.

cohen 2/24/2018:
1. The last line under Introductory concepts in the topical outline and syllabus is: Marks used then mimic. Is that what was meant?
2. On the syllabus, it would help to be a little more precise on the cost of the textbooks if possible.
3. In Section 7 of the syllabus, change:
Non-scheduled class time for field trips or out-of-class activities may require for this class.
to:
Non-scheduled class time for field trips or out-of-class activities may be required for this class.
4. Under Instructor's Policies on Attendance (Section 10), what happens if a student is, say, in the hospital for three classes? Will the student lose a letter grade?
5. Under Excused Absences (Section 10) in the syllabus, it appears that students must contact the instructor prior to class for each excused absence. There are times when that may not be possible. (The example on the syllabus is potentially one such time.) How will those absences be treated?
