Come explore Miami’s historic downtown like an architect! See our city’s landmark buildings through an architect’s eyes, using a sketchbook and pen. Learn to draw by sketching some of downtown Miami’s historic landmarks, like the Dade County Courthouse, the Church of Gesù and the old US Post Office Building, home of MCAD! This 2-hour course is open to beginners and novices of all ages who love architecture and want to explore it through drawing.

Joaquim Perez (University of Miami) and David Rifkind (FIU), local architects and educators, will introduce you to basic drawing techniques and lead you on the urban adventure brief sketching tour of downtown Miami.
