Join Prince’s Trust Australia and INTBAU Australia as part of Open House Hobart for an exciting one-day workshop introducing students to the art of architectural drawing.

Taught by Alexander Dowthwaite, this workshop will introduce students to traditional methods of architectural drawing with a focus on cultivating the “art of seeing”, or understanding the composition of heritage buildings through drawing.

Through a “pencil-and-paper” approach, students will gain an appreciation of the design patterns that underly Australia’s architectural heritage and learn to decode the meanings behind the composition of our historic buildings and places. Attendees will learn architectural sketching, drafting and composition

Cost: $15 (lunch included)
