Taught by BIGDRAW visiting artists and Ringling College of Art & Design faculty Claudia Cumbie-Jones & Lance Ford Jones, "Extreme Perspectives: Drawing for the Big Dome" will explore perspective beyond the traditional one, two, and three-point techniques, and will survey “distorted” drawings (anamorphic projection, distorted grid, fisheye, etc) and focus on fisheye distortion for full Dome projection. There will be time for workshop participants to create images that will be projected onto the planetarium dome. Drawing materials are provided.
