Dr. Thomas Howe, RAS Foundation coordinator general and Chair of Southwestern’s Art History program, describes the summer 2015 program:


“We established a very successful curriculum last year, which is described in the attachment (I hope). We were working with reflectorless laser theodolite and LiDAR and, absolutely irreplaceable hand drawing in the field, and stitching with photographs, hand-traced Illustrator files and AutoCAD. Even students who had little or no experience with hand drawing or CAD turned out to be very productive. Transfer credit of three hours is granted from the University of Maryland with Prof. Lindley Vann as professor of record.”
