Last Sunday I had a great time connecting with Gabi Campanario, Frank Ching, and Gail Wong as they were wrapping up their workshop "Line to Color" at Washington State University. The workshop was organized by Associate Professor Bob Krikac, and he and I talked about the possibility of hosting a similar event next Fall between both WSU and the University of Idaho. Hopefully we can make something happen. Anyway, last Sunday was a beautiful day for a sketchcrawl, in part of the campus that I had never really explored before. I didn't have a lot of time for this sketch, but it was a lot of fun to take on the challenge of a reasonably challenging subject in an hour.
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.
