Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course introduces the Doric order through freehand drawing.

Participants will learn to lay out the Doric column, entablature and pediment as described by Vignola, a Renaissance architect. The class will culminate in the drawing of a simple Doric temple façade. By carefully drawing this order, students will understand its proportional principles, tectonic nature, and beauty.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

Layout the entire Mutulary Doric order by Vignola and explore the proportional relationships of the parts to the whole.

Produce a detailed drawing of the base, capital and entablature and learn the nomenclature of the various parts.

Draw the Doric pediment and learn how to construct the profile of the raking cornice.


  • Draw a tetrastyle temple facade in the Doric order with a pediment and four columns.


Learn the principle of intercolumniation, or column spacing for the Doric order.

Learn the origins and development of the Greek Doric Temple.
