4 x 2.5 hour sessions

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 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.
