Frank Harmon Lecture and Workshop

Did you miss out on his events in November? Do you have more questions? Want to do more urban sketching? Frank Harmon is back for another lecture and workshop.

Harmon has loved drawing since he was a boy gazing out of a classroom window. As an architecture student in London in the 1960s, he used freehand sketching to discover, study, and understand the nuances of structures and nature. He still does. Always armed with a pocket-sized sketchbook, a couple of drawing implements, and a miniature watercolor set, he also uses sketching to embed the subject of his drawing in his memory.

“If I take a photograph of something, I’ll soon forget it. But if I draw something, it remains in my mind forever.”

Frank Harmon, FAIA, has designed sustainable modern buildings across the Southeast for 30 years. His work engages pressing contemporary issues such as placelessness, sustainability, and restoration of cities and nature.


September 10| 5:30 – 7:30 PM

Harmon will share excerpts from his book, Native Places: Drawing as a Way to See, and examples of his own architectural work to illustrate how sketching “as a way to see” enhances the grace with which we observe and appreciate all sorts of “native places”.


September 12 | 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM

During the Urban Sketching workshop on June 20 at 10:00 am, Frank Harmon will teach participants how to look more closely at the particulars of place and nuances of objects within that place, then express their observations more clearly through sketching.
