Course Description

In this course, we will learn effective ways of drawing as a means to communicate design ideas and explore digital tools that support traditional drawing. The course aims to outline a workflow and to simplify the drawing process. The course explains methods for drawing different elements such as trees, people, cars, architecture, and landscape architecture. There is no better way to communicate design than through drawing, and it is my hope that this course will give you more confidence when it comes time to put pen to paper.
