Letter to ARC


Published before 2005

When I was beginning to learn how to draw and paint I went to the University bookstore and browsed their textbooks. I ended up buying a history book from the art section and a PERSPECTIVE text from the architecture department. There were NO perspective texts (at least during my visit) in the art section. Architecture departments are an overlooked source of traditional instruction. It would be as rare to find a second year architecture student who could not draw a complex structure in correct perspective as to find a "Fine Arts Major" who could.
