Drawing and visual communication skills are essential in urban design. In this hands-on course, you’ll learn and practice graphic techniques that will enhance your ability to communicate ideas visually.

We’ll explore how to effectively use graphics for different audiences in the urban design process. If you’re a novice, this course will increase your confidence by leaps and bounds as you learn the basics of line and form drawing, colour, and perspective techniques. If you’re more experienced, this course will be a good refresher that will also address more advanced drawing and presentation techniques.
