Learn to visualize and model interior spaces and 3D forms with this easy-to-use and intuitive program. It is a perfect addition to our interior and/or garden design courses. The software is very affordable and available for home use on a PC or Mac.

What is the SketchUp course about?

This course is an introduction to developing 3D design ideas using a computer. The SketchUp Pro software is a very user-friendly 3D modeling program that enables perspective drawings and 2D orthographic projections (plans, elevation, and sections). It is ideal for conceptual interior design proposals as well as final designs that are fully rendered and scaled. It can also be used for modeling objects and outdoor spaces. The SketchUp Pro software is sufficiently adaptable to be relevant for home enthusiasts and professionals alike. The program can be used on both PC and Mac.

What will we cover?

We will cover various techniques to create different spaces and shapes relating to all aspects of interiors. The early sessions will be constructed around set exercises and handouts moving on to a more individual approach through a home or work project that you may want to develop. Individual tutorial support will be provided throughout the sessions.

Periodically there will be lifetime email support where we will look at each other’s work to discuss different aspects of the program.

Asking questions and commenting are encouraged at all times.

What will I achieve?

By the end of this SketchUp course, you should be able to

- Create 3D images directly on the computer

- Visualise the model from different viewpoints

- Introduce textures and finishes

- Incorporate simple shadows

- Save the model as an image

- Prepare images for printing.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

We will introduce all students to SketchUp Pro, but you will need to come with a basic understanding of computer use and manipulating a computer mouse. You should be able to follow simple written and verbal instructions, demonstrations, and hand-outs.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Ongoing discussions, demonstrations, and one-to-one personal projects and exercises alongside one-to-one help will ensure you get full support throughout the course.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

No, there is no additionalcost.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Develop your skills further with SketchUp Pro: taking your project further intensive. With lifetime email support.

Real Animation Works offer a range of courses in Interior Design, Vector Works, SketchUp Pro, Axonometric Drawing, model making, Photoshop, and Illustrator to enhance your Interior Design practice.
