  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) March 23, 2012 - Paul Hobgood, a design architect at the award-winning firm Kenneth E. Hobgood Architects in Raleigh, will help teach high school students the basics behind architectural drawing and model building during a special workshop to be held at the Contemporary Art Museum (CAM) in downtown Raleigh on Saturday, April 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Hobgood, a graduate of the N.C. State University College of Design with a Master of Architecture degree, will co-teach the Architecture Skills Workshop with Rebecca Necessary, a project designer at Vines Architecture and an undergraduate studio instructor at the College of Design.

    Hobgood and Necessary will first teach the students, grades nine through 12, the fundamentals of architecture drawing and modeling. Then the students will utilize the tools and techniques they've learned to complete two skills-based projects.

    "It's a great opportunity for high school students to challenge themselves creatively and hopefully gain the confidence to pursue a career in design," Hobgood said. "I think it's an ideal first step and I hope people will take advantage of it.

    Advance registration is required to attend the workshop, which will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Registration fee is $50. For more information and to download the registration form, go to and click on "programs," then "high school," then "workshops and open studios."
