Summer Academic Enrichment Program

Architecture

Course Fee: $25
 
Description:
Architecture
Students will learn about architecture and various styles of buildings. The images of architecture will inspire students to create drawings and models of designed spaces. They will use design elements and principals to make their models, perspective drawings, floor-plans, elevations and sections utilizing a ruler and scale. The students will also use colored pencils to enhance their drawings so that they can create a display of images.
 
Advanced Architecture Sketch-Up
Advanced Architecture with Sketch-up is a class where students will use the computer program Sketch-up to create floor-plans, elevations, furniture, and 3 dimensional computer generated architectural drawings. We will review what we learned in the first architecture class and add more information to build the students knowledge about architecture. Students will also examine  architecture in Los Angeles and around the world to compare the different styles of buildings so that they can create a building in the style of their choosing.
