Landscape Architecture taster session
This taster session is suitable for students with an interest in studying Landscape Architecture at university.
How to analyse and draw a landscape
During this interactive session we will be introducing some simple drawing techniques used by landscape architects. Using a landscape you can see from your window - this may be your garden, a neighbours garden, the street - we want you to start considering how it is structured and what defines the space. The session lead will then demonstrate how drawing a ‘section’ of the garden enables you to explore and present how the garden spaces are defined by different landscape elements; trees, walls, hedges etc. This exercise will enable participants to begin considering how landscape spaces and their different characters are shaped and how to communicate these differences through their drawings.
When: Tuesday 10 May 2022, 4.20pm - 5.30pm
Age group: Year 12 and Year 13
Please be advised that bookings for all taster sessions will close at 10am the day before the session, or earlier if the session becomes fully-booked. We therefore recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
