The Drawing Gymnasium for Engineers - Structures, Bridges and Facades
4 x 2 hour early evening sessions

6.00 - 8.00pm
The Drawing Gymnasium is a freehand drawing course to motivate effective communication and provide a broad set of skills for expressing ideas in the design process.
Run with D R A W I N G A T W O R K, the course is specifically aimed at practicing engineers but students, architects, manufacturers, set designers and others keen to improve their drawing skills have all benefited from the course. Individuals are encouraged to progress at a comfortable pace in a stimulating and supportive atmosphere.
Emphasis lies in communication rather than virtuoso drawing performances, and we work with a range of exercises from semi-formal (where line weight is critical), to 'conversational sketches' for rapid idea generation. Each attendee works from the Dr@w teaching sketchbook to rapidly learn techniques including axonometric, one and two point perspective, and section.
This course has particular emphasis on skills associated with the design and construction of buildings, bridges and large structural elements such as cladding.
Live sessions can also be followed online if delegates prefer. The second week has been designed as a self-learning session where the delegates use online resources to undertake the assignments without a teacher to build self-reliance. You will be given materials and guidance on how this works during the first session.
