Introduction to Architecture. Emailed reviews and weekly feedback will provide students the opportunity to explore the exciting and challenging field of Architecture!! If you are taking this course for a grade or high school credit, your instructor will be happy to provide a "report card" and a "suggested credit earned" document for your records. Usually 1/2 high school credit is suggested. The work in this course will provide significant work for college applications and AP Art portfolios.
This is a fascinating course that combines: logic, math, writing, history, art and design among other subjects. The study of architecture is one of the most well rounded courses available and one of the most FUN!!! You will find your instructor to be fun, personable, very positive and understanding, yet precise in what needs to be done.
Advanced Architecture for those that have completed the Intro to Architecture Course).! These are 9 Lesson Courses that can be taken in 9 or 18 weeks. These courses will help your student dive deeper into the depths of design. They follow a similar format to the Intro to Architecture Course. One half high school credit (based on about 90 hours of work) is suggested for both of these courses.
Beginning Architecture 1 is a course for students ages 7-12. This includes 9 lessons that will come to you weekly beginning September 9th. Students will be taught a new way of forming a structure (typically using materials around the house) and will be asked to photograph their "Structures" each week. Most activities will take 1-2 hours to complete. Mrs. G. will post your photographs on a special website so that students can see what their peers have created. You will receive a link to that site after you have turned in your own creations. This course is a lot of fun even for older students!
