Do you think you’re someone who can’t draw? If so, this course is for you! With the right approach, I believe we are all capable of drawing well. This course will introduce you to the basic techniques of drawing from life. You will engage in short- and long-form drawing exercises and get feedback during class.


X472: Making a Difference: The Economics of Doing Social Good in Splash 2019 (Apr. 06, 2019)
Ever wonder how you can make a positive difference in your community and in the world? This course will present an economic way of thinking about how to do the most social good given what we have. We will address questions like: how do we define “social good”, why should we care about it, how do we measure it, and how can we try to maximize it? We will discuss how to apply economic thinking to evaluate the social impact of our individual actions and of large-scale policies.
