Basic Drafting

Drafting is the language used in the construction industry for communicating ideas and instructions. The construction drawings are used for selling and building those ideas. Most construction and presentation drawings today are done on computers but the initial ideas and concepts are still sketched out by hand. An understanding of hand drafting is still important to a drafter/designer. This introductory course will outline some of the basic techniques and terminology used for hand sketching and basic drafting. The student will be expected to complete sketching exercises and a final project. This course will be completed by hand, not with a CAD software program. 

Completion time: 2 months
