Will taught design and drawing at Harvard University from 1964-2002. An ongoing project is the organization of his course material, recently, as he's been thinking over these matters, he has made some commentary at the Quora website.
With Will's permission, I am gathering his commentary here in his blog--not least so these writings are easily accessible as work on the drawing course materials progresses.
Will's work bag
It has been a pleasure for Will and Katya both, to receive the many kind comments that have welcomed the new pages. Thank you to all!
We are still working out how to use this page/blog. So far, so good.
Currently Will is responding to messages as he sees them, and Katya is combing through afterwards to tidy up. Comments may disappear after Will or Katya has had contact with a poster directly.
To avoid spam, email addresses have not been published on this site, but we will attempt to respond to all messages we receive, privately or publicly, as appropriate.
Enjoy the mildly comical "pushmi-pullyu" effect as Katya and Will sort out who responds to what, and where? (Katya's hope is that her role in technical support will become less visible as Will familiarizes himself with the technology)
Beware the Ides of March!
Welcome, and please feel free to leave your comments. For those of you familiar with Will's old site, there is much new content and many upgraded photographs.
We'll be combing over the site for the next few weeks, trying to eliminate oddities. Please address any questions to me (Katya) and I will pass them on to Will.
Almost ready to go live here.
The pages have been completely updated from Will's old site (last updated 2006!). It is hoped that with this new platform, we'll have an easier time updating images &c.
Will is a sculptor and draftsman, living and working in Cambridge, MA.
Artwork depicted on this site that is not given a collector's citation may be available, though the primary purpose of this site is not as a sales center. Many singular items are in the family or private collections and NFS.
Will continues to accept commissions, as time permits.
