The Drawing Gym for Architects and Spatial Designers

© James K-Chung


This course is devised to improve the visual tools architects and designers use in the creative process. Over five evening sessions it will encourage people to better express ideas and communicate more effectively. It is designed to suit those with little freehand drawing experience but probably not absolute beginners. This is for people seeking to refresh and upgrade their sketching skills.

Beginning with introductory exercises in isometric, axonometric, oblique, two-point perspective and section drawing, attendees will apply these drawing techniques to quick improvisation scenarios. Exercises will specifically show how to draw two-point perspectives from street level, 3D sections, axonometrics from plans and thumbnail sketches. Learn to apply these skills to make freehand pictorial and diagrammatic sketches around a building.

The course will be taught using a combination of demonstrations, short films, one-to-one tuition, exercise sheets and reference to contemporary freehand sketches.

Attendees are encouraged to progress at a comfortable pace in a stimulating and supportive atmosphere and will be expected to devote roughly one hour per week to homework assignments.

Dates for each session:

6th Oct 2014
