Introduction to Classical Moldings

Introduction to Classical Moldings
Tuesday, March 07, 2017 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm

Erik Evens, Instructor

This three-hour evening intensive provides an introduction to understanding the use and rationale of the classical moldings. Moldings are the basic building blocks of classical buildings, the “atomic units” at the very heart of the classical language of architecture, and a working knowledge of moldings is the starting point for a thoughtful approach to design. Students of all abilities will find interest and value in this fast-paced introduction. You will learn to draw the classical moldings freehand, and will gain an understanding of their purpose and correct use, and how to employ them for greatest effect.

Whether your goal is to lay out a correct Doric column, or to design a beautifully embellished formal room, a practical understanding of the classical moldings and the rationale for their purpose and use is indispensable to the design practitioner.

PLEASE NOTE: This course is a pre-requisite to The Tuscan Order (March 28) and The Doric Order (May 23) classes.
