What you’ll do

Develop your technical drawing ability – for your portfolio or for fun. Practise getting your ideas out of your head and onto the page with the guidance of an architectural designer who’ll show you the techniques used by professionals to communicate their designs.

The first session will involve perspective drawing in the gallery spaces. The second session will focus on axonometric drawing, and you’ll combine drawing what you see with your own vision.

All the materials you’ll need will be provided.
