Are you thinking about studying architecture?
You might be wondering whether you need to be good at hand drawing to pursue architecture.
You might not be the greatest artist. Or, drawing might be your biggest strength.
Let me confirm for you whether you need to be good at drawing in order to be an architect.
Do You Need to Be Good at Drawing to Study Architecture?
The short answer?
You don’t need to be good at drawing to study architecture.
However – being good at drawing is only going to help you by giving you an advantage.
If you are not creative or artistic or good at drawing, don’t fret.
The idea behind architecture school is that you learn the necessary skills you need to be an architect along the way.
In fact, in Australia, there are no prerequisites to study architecture. No art courses, no hand-drawing courses, no software courses. Nothing.
Saying that, because there are no prerequisites, it’s assumed you know nothing. You don’t have to know how to make models or sketch and draw like an architect.
The key thing here is that – this means you’re EXPECTED to learn these skills along the way.
You don’t need any previous knowledge but having some is only going to be advantageous to you.
You don’t need to be good at drawing to study architecture, but you do need to be willing to learn the skill to become good at hand drawing.
I hope that helps 😊
