Traditional Drawing Workshop with Associate Professor Fang Xu

March 30 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Prince’s Trust Australia, in association with INTBAU Australia, invites you to attend a one day traditional drawing workshop in Sydney, facilitated by Associate Professor Fang Xu of University New South Wales Art & Design and a leading artist in the urban sketching field. 

Drawing and sketching is a critical skill in the design thinking and communication process. It once formed a major part of design education, particularly in architecture, landscape architecture, urban and interior design. As traditional drawing skills continue to be replaced by digital design techniques in many universities and colleges, much of the traditional skill of the designer’s pen is being lost. It’s therefore more important than ever to learn this most foundational skill, as there is no better way to learn the principles of design than through the tip of a pen.

Using the architecture and urban landscape of The Rocks in Sydney, this workshop will provide a platform for participants to develop these foundational sketching and drawing skills. Suitable for professionals looking to enhance their design work, students, or simply anyone who has a passion for heritage, tradition and art, this intensive course will provide attendees with essential skills in seeing, sketching and deciphering architecture.
