Spring 2022 Series:

The Design Discovery Spring 2022 series will focus on fundamental architectural design skills. Each workshop focuses on a different core lesson that will help high school students explore their interest in architecture as well as hone a skill that will be helpful for portfolio development. These workshops are open to all levels of architecture and art experience. Attend all four sessions for an opportunity to round out all skills, or just select the workshops that appeal most to you! 

Architectural Sketching:

This session will focus on free-hand techniques for drawing architecture. Students will be introduced to some basic techniques for sketching architecture including methods of shading and rendering different materials. The class will start at the Center for Architecture with some basic lessons and sketching exercises, then will head outside (weather permitting) to practice observational on-site sketching at a site nearby.

All materials will be provided. Students are welcome to bring their own sketchbook and pencils if preferred.


The Scholarship Application deadline is Saturday, April 23rd. If you are interested in applying for a need-based scholarship, please follow the instructions on the Scholarship Information and Financial Need Form.
