Tawnya Iglehart is a fourth year student at North Dakota State University. Even as a child, she spent her play time fascinated by painting and drawing, about which she is passionate about it to this day.
In this course, students develop images both in sketchbooks, and as individual works based directly on their experiences living and traveling in Italy. Students closely observe, document, and comment on their investigations of various aspects of Italian life and culture. On-site drawing is a major focus of the course, as is the use of drawing as a communication tool. Students examine and consider the work of journalistic illustrators as well as artists relevant to the classes’ focus.
