and observation skills for community, landscape, and ecological design students.
Drawing Assignments collected weekly and to be contained in a final portfolio;

Visual Presentation Techniques is a course in graphic communications for community,
landscape, and ecological design students. The course includes black and white drawing,
perspective drawing, shade and shadow, colored rendering techniques, and presentation
materials. Students are expected to come to class having completed drawing, reading, and
research assignments.
Walking field trips to sketch out of the classroom occur regularly so timeliness is
important; guest speakers are occasionally invited to the class to talk about their use of
sketching as part of their design practice. Grading consists of a mid-semester assessment
and final portfolio critical review. Grades are based on attendance, participation, quality
and consistency of assignments, portfolio review, and final project.
Course objectives are to develop:
Student drawing skills through seeing, sketching, and perspective drawing;
Illustration skills through the use of color rendering techniques and color analysis;
Presentation skills through p i n-ups‖ with class critique and discussion; and
Sense of completion and accomplishment through mid-semester and final
portfolio.
