Sketching Architecture with Joel Berman

Check out this Chicago Architectural Foundation continuing education class.

Architectural Drawing: How to Sketch Like an Architect (Part 2)

Wednesdays, February 1 – March 7 (six class sessions), 6–8:15pm

Chicago arguably has the most beautiful skyline in North America, perhaps in the world. Take your basic urban drawing skills to the next level: each week we will go to an architecturally significant building downtown, learn a formulaic color or perspective technique, and draw on site. Emphasis will be placed on loose, free hand color perspective sketches in lieu of technical drawing.
