Looking for a way to brush up on the new landscape design graphics software? Come and learn about the new technology at this hands-on computer lab training seminar.

This course will cover basic techniques for the idea exploration, visualization and communication using the some of the latest digital software programs (Dynascape Design, Dynascape Color, Sketchup, Visionscape), with the primary focus being on the creation of objects via computer modeling in the third dimension. Emphasis will be placed on creation of a 2D model with Dynascape software and then on 3D modeling with Sketch Up and enhancement with the new Visionscape software. Several case studies will be explored showing real projects that were created with SketchUp software.

It's recommended that attendees go to and download the free version of SketchUp prior to the class so they will have a login already created. Warning: it can very addicting!!

Note: this class is mainly an overview of the types of software being used; not a class on how to use the specic programs.
