Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the basics of how to read architects' plans, and utilize the three main drawing types- plan, section, elevation in their own designs.  They will understand that these three drawing types, working together can show the 3 dimensional form of a building. 
My background is in architecture and I have worked in the field for over 10 years, drawing construction documents and designing buildings.  I use a computer to draw now, but I firmly believe that drawing by hand is critically important when learning about design and architecture.  For kids, designing by hand, putting thought to paper by hand BEFORE (or alongside) utilizing the computer helps develop their spacial perception and critical thinking.  

When I was a kid, I used to draw floor plans of my dream house.  Looking back, I wish I had a class like this so I could further my designs! 
Continue to work on drawing and model-making.
Sharpened pencils, eraser, paper.  Any paper will do, including printer, trace, or graph paper.  Cardboard or stiff paper, scissors, tape, and hot glue for the 3rd week.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
