Lets Bake a Master Plan ON-DEMAND!
Did you miss the 2022 State Conference Workshop? Take this course!
Making a master plan can be just like baking a cake! You need a great framework (recipe), great plan elements (ingredients), and the right drawing/design tools (utensils). You need to practice (and practice more) until you find your own way to draw and design. Most importantly, you have to love the process of making, and the joy of watching others enjoy places you helped create.
During this interactive online course, organized by the APA-IL Professional Development Committee in collaboration with ASLA Illinois, experts Ferhat Zerin, FAICP, Pericles Georgopoulos, and Sarah White, AICP, ASLA, LEED, will help you improve your hand drawing skills and show you how you can draw a great (and delicious) master plan.
Drawing Supplies & Handout: In order to participate, attendees must print out the workshop handout(s) and be prepared with the needed drawing supplies provided on the course webpage.
