About This Class


In this class you are going to learn a step-by-step process how to sketch like an architect. It begins with the very basics of making straight lines and progresses to gradually more complex compositions of sketched perspectives. Along the way I will share important tips and tricks, drills, and techniques to achieve sketches with architectural look, strong character, and story within.

You will learn not only the sketching technique, but also about the thinking behind the process - e.g. why and how to add people to your sketches, how to create a sense of depth in an image, and much more.

This class is perfect for anyone interested in sketching or drawing. If you´re an architecture student, you´d like to capture the moments from your holidays, spaces around you, or you just like to doodle, then this class is just for you!

You don´t have to be great to start, you have to start to be great! So don´t worry, if you´re not super confident at sketching and give it a chance with this class. I´m looking forward to seeing all of your sketches..! :)

The classes are simple but effective and the downloadable material is brilliant.
For me this class was exactly what I was looking for, a class that taught basic techniques that I could use to convey what I saw or imagined for my own sketches. The added pdf with references and practice exercise is pure knowledge gold.
