I am pleased to announce that SketchingNow Buildings course is now open for registration!
When you attempt to sketch a complex building:
- Are you unsure where to start?
- Do your angles always look wrong?
- Does your finished sketch look like a cardboard box?
- If you add colour, does it turn out too heavy and flat?
I have designed this course to tackle all these challenges and to empower you to have fun sketching architecture without the need for technical perspective!
SketchingNow Buildings is a 6 week course (with lots of interaction from me) starting on Wednesday 07 September 2016. For more details click here.
It’s really a dream come true for me to be able to offer this material online to a wider audience. And I can’t help adding that it’s really special for me to have two demonstrations filmed on location in Italy AND one of them being a building by Palladio… sorry my Palladian obsession just snuck out there!
for 4 in-depth lessons and 2 review weeks
A few questions I have already been asked
Do I need to do the Foundations course first?
It is recommended. The content in Buildings applies the concepts explained in Foundations specifically to sketching architecture so you will get the most out of the course if you have done the Foundations exercises first. You might want to check out my Foundation Fridays series on my blog which will give you a good idea of the content. If you don’t understand what I am referring to by seeing edges and shapes and doing sight measurements then I recommend you start with Foundations.
Will you run the course again?
This is the only time that I will offer SketchingNow Buildings as a weekly course with lots of teacher interaction. It will be offered as a self-directed course sometime next year but this is the only chance you have to do it ‘live’ working alongside others each week and interacting with me. Don’t miss out – this is a never to be repeated event!
Will you be teaching perspective?
SketchingNow Buildings will explain strategies for seeing and understanding buildings better, which I strongly believe is more important than technical perspective. Perspective demands its own course (something I plan to do in the future).
How long do will the course material remain available?
The course material will remain indefinitely so you can come back and revisit the lessons over and over again.
