Teacher: Judy Schneider

Students will discover the relationship between their bodies and their surroundings and gain an understanding of how design ideas turn into built environments. We will look at ways in which architectural proportions are geared to human scale: doors are to walk through, windows are to see through and stairs are to climb. Why are they the same? When are they different?  Students will learn a practical way to understand units of measurement; What is a Smoot? Why are horses measured in hands? Learn how to measure spaces and make a scaled drawing.

We have scholarships available for this class based on financial need. Please have a non family member send us and email or letter on your behalf and we will waive $25 of the class fee. Register your student over the phone or in person. | 402 Main Street Norway ME 04268 | 207-739-2664
