There is no more powerful tool for a designer than the ability to communicate by means of a perspective sketch. Because hand sketching is the shortest path from the designer's mind to the documentation of an idea, it is vitally important to be able to draw in perspective, yet it is often absent from their skill set. People simply find perspective intimidating to learn. Most ultimately fail to develop confidence in their ability to draw.
Perspective Simplified is an IDCEC accredited workshop developed by William Feldman, AIA, an architect, designer and instructor at Mount Mary University, in response to a renewed interest in quick, hand-drawn perspective sketches among interior designers and architects. It is conducted as a hands-on workshop focusing on the development of skills needed to produce convincing hand-drawn perspective sketches as a means to explore, document and communicate ideas.
By gaining confidence and a better understanding of the process of drawing in perspective, participants have dramatically improved their sketching abilities, and ultimately, their value as design professionals.
