Landscape Graphics and Communication

Thursday Midnight to May 23, 2024 Midnight

Berkshire Botanical Garden

Taught on Thursdays, April 18 to May 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. by Chuck Schnell and Walter Cudnohufsky, participants in this class will focus on the free-hand drawing techniques that precede the more precise and highly technical world of hard-line drafting of construction documents. Students will learn and put into practice Conceptual and Schematic style graphics which may appear free-hand and loose but do not lack some precision and being at proper scale. This class will teach an Illustrative and informative approach to landscape plan rendering, and help students learn to convey with both graphics and carefully crafted words the design intent. Join this studio-like environment and learn that good landscape drawings that combine words and graphics can be very compelling!
