Introduction to Classical Moldings
Hosted by the Northern California Chapter | 3 LUs
This three-hour evening intensive provides an introduction to understanding the use and rationale of the classical moldings. Moldings are the basic building blocks of classical buildings, the "atomic units" at the very heart of the classical language of architecture. A working knowledge of moldings is the starting point for a thoughtful approach to design. Students of all abilities will learn to draw the classical moldings freehand, and will gain understanding of their purpose and correct use, and how to employ them for greatest effect.
Whether your goal is to lay out a correct traditional facade or to design a beautifully embellished formal room, a practical understanding of the classical moldings and their rationale is indispensable to the design practitioner.
This event is hosted by an ICAA Chapter. Please check the Chapter website, or contact the Chapter directly, for the most up-to-date details including dates, times, and pricing.
