The El Centro College Architecture Program is intended to introduce undergraduate students to the basics of architectural design and provide them with a sound intellectual grounding in the study of architecture. The Program emphasizes architectural history, elements of spatial design, drafting, sketching, computer graphics, building codes, and structural concepts. Currently, the Program is offering two classes: Introduction to Architecture (ARCH 1311), and Architectural Freehand Drawing I (ARCH 2301).
Representational drawing of three-dimensional spaces is studied, with an emphasis on vantage point, perspective, light, shade, line, and tonality.
