Design Like an Architect! (FLEX)
In this 4-week, flexible schedule class, students will learn the basic skills to design a house and use architectural drawing techniques to communicate their designs.

My background is in architecture and I have worked in the field for 15 years, drawing construction documents and designing buildings.

Homework OfferedEach student will design their dream house or draw the house they live in. Drawing homework may take 1-2 hours per week. Model building may take longer depending on how detailed the student wishes to get.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Sharpened pencils, eraser, paper. Graph paper is helpful, but any paper will do. Colored pencils optional. Cardboard or cardstock, scissors, tape, and hot glue for model making.
