In this course, you will learn a step-by-step approach for drawing any urban scene in perspective from life, photo reference or imagination. Classes generally begin with a quick explanation and demonstration followed by exercises "in the field" with guidance and one-on-one feedback.

You will have several finished pieces for your portfolio and a solid foundation for reaching a professional level of drawing.

Western Philosophy, since its inception, has largely ignored the medium by which it is communicated: its literature. This course examines the relation between linguistic ability and philosophical acuity through a number of texts, from ancient to modern.
The approach is to examine seminal works throughout the history of Western Philosophy - one text every class - from Plato's "Symposium" and the poetry of Lucretius, to Descartes' "Meditations" to the ground-breaking work of Friedrich Nietzsche and Ludwig Wittgenstein.
