About This Class

As an Interior Designer with 20 years experience in designing residences and commercial projects all over the world, I've learned that the success of every project always comes down to lighting.  In the first part of my Skillshare Design series, I'll share my techniques on how to light a room properly.  

In less than 15 mins, with a few simple steps, take your rooms from the standard ceiling fixture in the middle of the room, to a new level of sophistication. This class is great for beginners, design students and enthusiasts, or anyone looking to brush up on Lighting Design basics. 

Grab your favorite notebook and pen, and sign up for the class!

This was a really informative intro to lighting. However, the lecturer had an unnatural, stilted manner of speaking and her slides were a bit boring.
Cool intro to lighting! Technical, but important stuff to learn!

HI! This is a fantastic, easy to follow class! Lots of tips and great advice, in an easy to follow format. This is a great teacher, can't wait to see what else she produces. :-) Skillshare needs to make INTERIOR DESIGN a category. This class was hard to find.
