ABSTRACT
The article reports on the drawing classes of artist Stefano Cusumano. He teaches the basics of illustration and painting at Cooper Union and New York University. He explains how he discovered that the construction of geometric shapes give more life to a drawing. Aside from giving his students assignments and exercises to hone their skill at visualization, he tells them to always work with a model not a photograph to ensure that their forms are subtle.
