Basic Drafting - a Hands-on Approach

The Drafting program is a three part program, Monday - Wednesday.

For grades 5 - 8

Date:  June 12 - 14
Time:  10:00am-11:30am

With the all of the computer software available to do the drawing for us, the art of drafting by hand is becoming a lost art.  This workshop will go over the basic tools for drafting and how to use them.
We will take that knowledge and turn it into a drawing of a room, then proceed to furnish that room all to scale.  We will also touch on perspective as we complete the workshop.

  • Each participant will be need to bring with them the measurements for a room in their home, say a bedroom or living area so that they can turn those dimensions into their drawing.
  • Participants who sign up will be sent an email before the workshop with a detailed explanation of the measurements they will need for the workshop.
  • Drafting equipment, paper and pencil will be provided for the workshop.
