Drawing for Architecture, Episode 1: Learning to Draw Architecture
With David R. Csont
Everyone has the ability to draw. As children, we all drew pictures to communicate how we perceived the world around us. As adults, many of us struggle with the fact that our drawing skills may not be at a level that are worth using. Drawing, however, is much like playing a musical instrument, so with practice, good tutelage and a positive attitude, we can all develop our skills.
