This fast-paced, information-saturated clinic will introduce design students, home owners and others to an opportunity finding and problem solving the design process. It will lead to the basic conceptual elements of a landscape master plan. All attendees will participate in the process of observing and designing. Students will come away with coherent examples of how design happens. An active discussion format will focus on common design principles. A step-by-step power point presentation will focus the discussion later in the afternoon. This all-day workshop is a prerequisite for Landscape Design Clinic Level II course offered in spring 2017. The field trip is held rain or shine. There will be a $25 surcharge for design visits.
