Ever wish someone would explain gambrel, hipped and mansard roofs? Help you see the difference between Gothic Revival and Greek Revival? Teach you to spot a cornice, balustrade, transom and lintel? This is your lucky day: become an architecture-whiz after one morning of class time followed by an afternoon of fieldwork. Meet at the Adirondack Folk School (AFS) to start your education. After a few hours of personalized instruction, in the company of your instructor, use the hamlet of Lake Luzerne as your open-classroom to examine buildings exemplifying Queen Anne to Craftsman. One day with AARCH will instill you with the confidence to recognize architectural clues that will unravel many mysteries of the built environment.
This workshop is led by AARCH Preservation Services Director Mary Cirbus.
