The Summer Drawing Tour through Historic New England – Roseland Cottage

July 15 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Join the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art for this Summer Drawing Tour series through Historic New England, led by Architect, David Pearson.

Sketching historic sites provides participants with practical knowledge of tradition as manifest in the architecture. The morning session will be at Roseland Cottage designed by English-born architect Joseph C. Wells. This property reflects the principles of Andrew Jackson Downing and was completed in 1846. The student will have a rare opportunity to study an intact Gothic Revival exterior.

Participants follow in the great tradition of architects and artists who have learned from drawing in situ. One may take a thousand photos of a subject and may not know it…but if one spends some time drawing the same object …you will have it in your mind forever. To draw is to see. The program focuses on the enduring vitality and continuity of the classical tradition through the means of observational and analytical drawing.
