Interiors I

Interior Design 1

by Mrs. Elliott

This course focuses on a foundation study of the housing and interior industry.  

You will be required to keep a binder containing study sheets for each objective below. A spiral-bound sketchbook, ideally 11x14, will be required for illustrating most projects.  
Markers, colored pencils, glue,&  paper will be supplied until the class allocation runs out. You may want to bring your own colored paper or anything to give your pages an artistic flair. A pen and pencil are daily requirements. I will offer half sheet foam board for $.50 to each student for their room design project or they may purchase their own. (dollar tree!)
