The course provides a broad set of tools for expressing ideas in the design process
The Drawing Gym is a five evening freehand drawing course for architects. The course motivates people to communicate effectively and provides skills and a broad set of tools for expressing ideas in the design process.
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.
Practical work is supplemented with demonstrations, short films, and examples of contemporary freehand drawings from the DRAWINGATWORK on-line gallery. Individuals are encouraged to progress at a comfortable pace in a stimulating and supportive atmosphere.
Each attendee works from the Drawing Gym exercise book to rapidly learn techniques for transferring one method of drawing to another. Techniques include axonometric, 1 and 2 point perspective, and section. The sketchbooks remain with attendees.
