Pre-requisite: Introduction to Classical Moldings.

This fast-paced course provides the beginner's introduction to classical architecture. We'll study the Doric Order by laying out a column, entablature, and pediment (don't worry, you'll know those terms before the class is done). The class will end with a sketch problem combining these elements to create a classical door aedicula. You will learn why the study of the Orders is an essential foundation in the study of architecture.

Domiane Forte earned a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts, focusing in classical philosophy and mathematics, from Thomas Aquinas College, CA, and a Master of Architecture, focusing in classical architecture, from the University of Notre Dame, IN.  He is a certified instructor of classical architecture with the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, where he has been teaching for the last 12 years, and currently sits on the National Curriculum Committee ICAA.  He is an accomplished oil and watercolor painter, and is a master draftsman, dedicated to teaching and maintaining the craft of manual drafting and traditional watercolor illustration in an era of computer aided design and CGI rendering.  He is a member of the California Art Club, and his art is shown at various galleries around Southern California and beyond.
