Since the ICAA Florida Chapter’s founding, educational programs have been an integral part of our mission to advance the contemporary practice and appreciation of the classical tradition. From drawing the classical orders, to ink wash rendering and watercolor, and proportions courses, education is a vital component of the Chapter’s programming each year.

The educational programs are created with the intention of making them accessible for classical enthusiasts of all backgrounds. Additionally, many of our courses also qualify as continuing education for architects who are registered with the AIA. Many of the classes also apply towards the 100 credit hours one needs to earn the Certificate in Classical Architecture from the Institute. More information on the certificate program can be found here. Whether you are an architect, a design professional, an artist, or an individual with a passion for classical architecture and the allied arts, we hope you will find a course that inspires you here.
