Architectural Rendering in Wash
Hosted by the Philadelphia Chapter | 10 AIA Learning Units|Elective and 10 credits toward the Certificate in Classical Architecture
This course, taught by architectural illustrator David Genther, introduces the techniques of Beaux-Arts wash rendering. Students will begin by learning the basic skills needed to produce a traditional ink wash rendering of a Doric column capital. They will then develop an understanding of the qualities and characteristics of light, shade, shadow, and reflected light, as well as a sensibility for how architectural geometries, forms, planes, and profiles modulate light and shade and subsequently render form apparent.
Advance registration required. Costs includes most materials. Individuals will be responsible for providing Kolinsky Sable Round watercolor brushes – #4 and #10

Note: You should bring any and all brushes you own, but it is imperative you get the 2 Kolinsky brushes, as they are essential to completing the drawing.
Bring drafting equipment if you have it. At the very least a ruler to use as a straight edge and a pencil.
