  Topics examine structures, materials, and technologies exemplified in historical and contemporary architecture. Field trips, on site lectures in downtown
  Chicago, and class projects will give students an overview of both the science and art of designing buildings. A basic drawing course, both freehand
  drawing and mechanical drafting are used to communicate the way objects and interior spaces look in orthographic projections (plan, section, elevation,
  and perspective), paraline drawings (isometric and axonometric), design working drawings, and presentation drawings.

 Joining fabrics to cover the body and create shelter has been a prized skill in the progress of civilization. Students will build on that tradition by learning
 fundamental seams and finishes used in modern day garment construction. Industry standards of sewing are emphasized and all techniques are taught and
 practiced on professional, industrial sewing machines. In addition to creating a personal library of seam samples, students will apply the techniques in
 two basic projects. The class will also discuss fabric characteristics and the proper copying and cutting of patterns. Once mastered, these techniques can
 be used to sew together garments from patterns, create original designs, or explore fabric as a medium for soft sculpture. No previous sewing experience
 is necessary.

 Fabric mills weave yards and yards of fabric that are identical. The true creativity of a designer comes through in how that raw materials is manipulated
 into a representation of the designers vision. A variety of traditional and experimental techniques for embellishing and changing the surface and texture of
 fabric will be explored. Students will build on these ideas to create a series of manipulated materials. Technical processes to be explored may include
 beading, embroidery, couching, trapunto, applique, pleating, smocking, screen printing, dying, and ribbon work.
