This Fall, The Washington Architectural Foundation continues its partnership with ArtReach GW to offer Tools of the Trade. Classes will be held at ArtReach GW’s studio at THEARC.

Learn to think like an architect by learning the tools of the trade! This class is a focus on DC architecture and an introduction to an architect's design process.  Participants will be able to learn the tools of the trade: drawing, scaling and measurement, and 3D model-building.  This class will be focused on DC architecture and the contributions African American Architects have made in the nation’s capital.  In partnership with the Washington Architectural Foundation, classes are taught by design professionals working in DC. Classes will be held at ArtReach GW’s studio at THEARC.
