Please join the ICAA and Project Designers, Gayan Hettipola and Megan Leicht of Andrew Skurman Architects, for a one day studio introducing the techniques of Beaux-Arts architectural watercolor wash rendering. The class will cover the basic skills of hand drafting, stretching, and painting techniques on a classical elevation. Topics to be covered include the use of line weights, light, shade, shadow and reflected light to produce a formal rendering.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
• Basic skills and concepts behind a hand drafted elevation
• How to properly prepare a watercolor sheet for rendering
• Basic techniques of watercolor washes
• How architectural form influences the play of light, shade, shadow and reflected light upon a building

STUDENTS MUST PROVIDE:
• Large triangle or straight edge for drafting
• Several small (6 oz) containers to hold wash mixes. Sealable containers are preferred so students can take the mixes home in case they don't finish
• One larger container (12-24 oz) to hold water for brush rinsing
• Watercolor brush(es). If students purchase a sable brush, one round no.12 brush should be sufficient. If synthetic, we recommend purchasing an additional round no.4 brush
• Extra watercolor pad or sheets to practice washes

Accidents happen! Students should wear clothes they don't mind getting paint on. Students should be prepared to take home a 18x24" plywood board.

MATERIALS PROVIDED:
• Watercolor sheet with light linework
• Watercolor sheets for practice
• Watercolor tubes
• Plywood boards for stretching
• 2H and 6H pencils and erasers

Gayan Hettipola and Megan Leicht both received their Bachelor of Architecture degrees from the University of Notre Dame. While in the University's classically based program, they were trained in the techniques of architectural watercolor wash rendering originating from the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Currently employed as Project Designers at Andrew Skurman Architects in San Francisco, they continue to build their knowledge of classical design and use wash rendering among other techniques for project presentations.
