What Do I Need For An Architecture Course?
If you are about to enrol on to an Architecture Course at University then you will need to come equipped with the right Art Materials to start your BA degree. Knowing what to buy can be quite daunting. To make sure that you have the right equipment for your Architecture Course we have put together a list of the necessary Art Supplies. You will need:
- Portable A1 Drawing Board.
- Large Adjustable Set Square.
- Drawing Instruments – Protractor & Compass. When it comes to choosing a Compass you will be better off buying one with an extension bar (for drawing larger circles) and an adapter for technical pens and fineliners.
