Love old buildings but have no idea what you're looking at? In this class, students will get the rundown of American architectural styles from the Colonial era through the 19th century, with a focus on local and regional examples. Learn the names of important architectural styles common in the northeast; some basic architectural terminology; and how to approximately date the buildings you see every day.
Please note: This class is taught in conjunction with
"Crash Course in American Architectural History: 20th Century", but can be taken on its own if preferred.
This class is appropriate for ages 18+.
This class will take place indoors at Rochester Brainery, located at 176 Anderson Ave f109, Rochester, NY 14607.
