Question from Paola G.
Hello! I am very interested in this class but I have some questions. I have basic knowledge of architecture but never work in that field, I am interested in starting a career in ID, but I have not been in a classroom in a long time. I would like to know if this class is the right one for me. Also, once the course is done are we going to get any kind of document or something that prove that we had taken the class ?? Thank you!
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Paola! The Introduction class will require 2 hours of work per week. It's meant to be a fun introduction to some of the basic skills and ideas. It is not for academic credit, so it's pretty low-pressure, by design. The topics include furniture layouts, using a scale ruler and the basics of hand drafting, creating a color scheme, working with textiles, and putting together a basic design presentation.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
With only 12 students in the class, there is a lot of time to interact with the teacher and other students, and ask questions. You may request a certificate from the Office of the Registrar upon successful completion of the course.

Introduction to Interior Design
Reviewed by Anonymous on 8/1/2019
A good feel for an intro class, but be prepared for homework. Emphasis was on completing weekly projects and critiques, instead of actual teaching the hows and whys of interior design. Ideal class if interested in a career change.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 7/26/2019
Good overview of basic ID skills but too ambitious for a 6 week course. Wish there was more teaching/learning during class time, as much of the time was used for student presentations. Most of the course content was self-led with online modules. Class should likely be 3 hours instead of 2, or 8 weeks instead of 6. Was still fun, nonetheless

I loved this class! Don is a great teacher and you can tell, he really cares about his students. The only thing I wish: I had about 10 more classes with him!
