I am also confirming that Rebekah Higgins was a presenter during our program on June 23 rd during the evening session. She presented and demonstrated the analytical drawing method developed in Basel, Switzerland which is largely utilized in the drawing courses offered at Community College of Philadelphia. We found this method applicable to drawing any volumes, including our life drawings, still objects and imaginative constructions. It is uncommon to find someone versed in this way of thinking about drawing and we valued the presentation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.
