6.5 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
Throughout history, architects and artists have collaborated, building upon each others' skills to complete renowned monumental structures. By working together, artists and architects expand one another’s design visions into a unified whole. Knowledge gleaned from historical alliances between art and architecture are still applicable today.The course will begin with a survey of historical projects in which artists and architects have collaborated, with a special emphasis given to murals. Topics to be explored include the ways in which artwork influences architectural design and, conversely, how architecture influences artwork. The second half of the course will be devoted to the practical aspects of how to create monumental artworks. Research methods, color analysis techniques, metrology, methods of working with architects and clients, preliminary design maquettes, renderings, enlarging maquettes to monumental scale, stencil cutting, large format printing, and decorative finishes will be discussed. A brief site visit will showcase a real-life application of some of the mural work done by the instructors. The course will conclude with a hands-on demonstration of mural maquette design in which the students will be able to create their own small-scale works of art.Kevin Enright joined EverGreene Architectural Arts in 2014 as part of the Design Studio, bringing knowledge of traditional architecture, hand drafting, watercolor rendering, and computer aided design to the application of shop drawing, new design, and historic preservation projects.
