Inside the course

What's included?


Create the classic perspective line section.

From studios like Atelier Bow Wow to books like Manual of Section. This technical perspective section is an eye catching drawing that will communicate your spatial idea. 


A retro-style isometric section, that gives the feel of a pencil shade coloring.

This style has so many new techniques that you can apply to future drawings that you will be amazed! 


Blueprint Maquette Styled Section

Is this a render, a drawing, or a photo of a handmade model? That is how amazed people will be. 


I am not sure if this is for me

Who is this course for?

If you are interested in leveling up your architectural projects, blowing everyone´s socks away, or want to add new services to your creative business then this course is for you.

You will not believe the many times I have seen projects win competitions, get seen more, or just get better praise, just for having a great set of drawings. As architects, this is our main communication tool, and the more you improve your communication, the more ideas you will be able to put into the world.

What is the difference between this course and the YouTube videos?

Our courses cover each detail and issue that we encounter when creating an image, and that is sometimes overlooked in a YouTube Video. Also, our courses are longer and more specific, so a topic that could normally be covered in 20 seconds in a YouTube video will be explained thoroughly in the course.
