I had given my 3rd-year architectural design students a 'charette' project to work on in studio yesterday. This gave me an opportunity to do a quick sketch of the studio space. I've thought about adding some color, if only to try out the "water brush" thing I bought a couple days ago ... but I'm not sure what the color would add in this case. Only one way to find out, I suppose.
I teach architecture at the University of Idaho - design studios, architectural graphics courses, and a professional practice course. One of my passions outside of teaching ... and music, and plants, and mycology, and ... is observing and understanding the world through sketching with various media, such as pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolor. Passing along the same skill and interest to students is a goal I've pursued through my teaching here in Moscow, Idaho, and through an 8-week study-abroad program in Rome each summer.
