The Washington Mid Atlantic chapter of the ICAA is proud to bring you the following educational mini-series on Classical Interiors.

Sessions 1 and 2: Introduction to Classical Mouldings

In the first two parts of our 3-part series, Erik Evens (principal, Evens Architects) will introduce us to the building blocks that, when used properly, can be found at the heart of all great classical architecture in his lecture: Introduction to Classical Mouldings Part I and II.

BE ADVISED: in order to receive AIA Credit for the mouldings course, one must complete BOTH Parts I and II.)

These will be virtual education events. Once registered, the Washington Mid Atlantic chapter will send Zoom invitations to all who have registered. Registration for each part in our series will be cut off 30 minutes prior to the start of that session – so don’t wait! Register today!
