Course Description

This one-week intensive is ideal for people whose schedules are too busy to commit to the traditional course format. You should anticipate spending a few hours outside of class time working on room design assignments during the week. This intensive series contains the same 30 hours of course materials offered in our traditional certificate program:
Fundamentals of Design and Layout - Make professional floor plans, including use of properly scaled furnishings  and furniture placement for the best flow and function of the room.

The Effective Use of Color - Learn the elements of color in order to coordinate and match components, achieve desired effects and avoid errors.

Fabrics and Materials - Coordinate fabrics by scale, color, and patterns and how to select fabrics for various uses.

Furniture - Identify and describe the major periods of furniture styles, the basics of antique furniture, and quality furniture construction. 

Lighting and Accessories - Accessorize a room and create workable vignettes. Use lighting effectively as a decorative, as well as a functional part of the room.

Fee is $699

Includes an almost 15% discount for registering for all six days of this program. No other discounts apply. Some materials are included in fee; others will be purchased by students including an optional textbook for Furniture class. Please bring a bag lunch each day as the lunch break is only 30 minutes. Students must provide their own transportation for the field trip.
