Architecture Skill-Building Drawing Workshop

Architecture Skill-Building Drawing Workshop
with instructor Dr. Patricia Morgado (Associate Professor of Architecture at NC State University College of Design) and T.A. Jeremy Leonard (NCSU Fifth Year Architecture Student, Winner of the 2012 Shawcroft Drawing Prize)

This workshop is open to high school students, grades 9-12.

In this workshop, students will develop introductory perceptual drawing skills as a means of understanding architecture. Students will utilize tools and techniques used by professional architects. This workshop is ideal for students interested in studying architecture in college or taking their drawing skills to a new level.

Dr. Patricia Morgado received her bachelor and professional degrees from the Universidad Ricardo Palma (Peru), and her Ph.D. degree from the Universidad de Sevilla (Spain). Patricia’s areas of expertise include beginning design education, integration of architecture and landscape, and Latin American architecture. Patricia is a registered architect in Peru and Chile. Before moving to the United States in 2002, Patricia worked as an architect in firms in Peru, Chile, and Spain, as well as her own firm. Beyond her professional interests, Patricia has studied sculpture and drawing in Peru, Spain and Chile, and has participated in several collaborative exhibitions since 1981 and in a one-person exhibition in 1983. Before joining the faculty at NC State in 2008, Patricia was Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and an adjunct assistant professor at Universidad Nacional Andrés Bello in Santiago, Chile.

Jeremy Leonard graduated summa cum laude from the NCSU College of Design with a Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture, and he is continuing his education to obtain his professional Bachelor of Architecture degree. He shares his love for teaching as an NC State Design Camp counselor. In 2011, Jeremy studied abroad in Prague. To gain a greater understanding of how great works of architecture imbibe a site with a sense of place, Jeremy embarked on an architectural pilgrimage through Switzerland, Italy, and France. Jeremy filled many pages of his sketchbook studying the play of light on volumes and the change of materials over time.
