This drawing course will focus on both linear perspective and architectural rendering. Students will be shown a simple and practical approach to locating horizon lines, vanishing points, orthogonal and transversals. Placing architectural forms within that perspective will be demonstrated in one full day demo. Students will then apply these concepts on their own drawings on the second day.
Frederick Brosen’s watercolors have been featured in over 30 solo museum and gallery exhibitions across the country, most recently at the South Street Seaport Museum and at Hirschl & Adler Modern in NYC, both in 2012.

In 2015 his work was featured in ‘Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland’, premiering at the Wadsworth Atheneum and traveling to 3 additional museums, concluding at the Brooklyn Museum in 2016.
