Hosted by the Louisiana Chapter | 7.5 AIA CES Learning Units|Elective and 7.5 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
This 8 hour intensive class will focus on the Classical heritage of LSU’s original campus, particularly, Theodore Link’s incorporation of elements, motifs and composition inspired by the Italian Renaissance. The course will introduce students to Classical Tradition through purposeful observational and analytical drawing.
The day will be spent sketching, in situ, Hill Memorial Library and the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center on LSU’s campus with pencil as the primary medium. Students will learn the fundamentals of orthographic projection, perspective, composition, shade & shadow, and incorporation of site elements as integral parts of a world created through the act of drawing. The ultimate goal of the course is to arm novice sketchers with the tools and confidence to hone their drawing skills and powers of observation as they continue to explore and record their built environment.

The LSU Main Campus serves as a unique example of campus planning that harmonizes safe walkable spaces with efficient transportation infrastructure. At the building scale, analysis of the architecture of LSU will provide students of this course with a successful precedent for creating lively and enjoyable façades and interstitial spaces.
