REGISTER FOR WEBINAR
Since the Renaissance, architects have sketched and measured all facets of architecture in portable bound books. Architects have used the sketchbook to record historical artifact in both pictorial representational, three-dimension sketches, and carefully measured drawings drawn to scale.
This course will introduce the student to a method of sketchbook drawing that is focused on accurately measured drawings of accessible architectural details, drawn-to-scale in a sketchbook. The subject for study for the In-Person field class will be various structures at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
This webinar is a pre-requisite for Part II on October 30.

Clay Rokicki started at Historical Concepts in 2006 after graduating summa cum laude from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in architecture and a concentration in furniture design. In 2010, Clay was awarded the J. Neel Reid Fellowship from the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation, enabling him to sketch his way through southern England. He currently serves as the chair of the Education Committee of the ICAA’s Southeast Chapter and was instrumental in founding the Young ICAA in the Southeast Chapter for emerging professionals and students. Clay is a Principal at Historical Concepts and co-leads a design studio with firm founder Jim Strickland.
