    Intro to Architecture will teach you to create

    3-D objects using Google Sketchup,

    which is used by architecture, engineering and design professionals.

     This class lasts one marking period, but your imagination and the possibilities are limitless! 

    Sketchup is a free program. 

    Why not download it and start creating on your own? 

     

    Do not let your work go unfinished, or your questions go unanswered. 

    If you are behind or confused, see me to schedule after school help or extra work time sessions.
