The Elevations You’ll Be Creating In This Course

Who is the Target Audience?

  • This course is aimed at Interior Designers, Interior Design students, Interior Decorators, Interior Architects, Interior Stylists and Home Staging professionals, with no previous (or very limited) knowledge of SketchUp.

Professional Practice

  • This course will provide you with the necessary SketchUp skills to create an accurate elevation based on real life measurements and the application of actual patterns/textures and wall paints available from Retailers and Suppliers; supporting your design processes and allowing you to confidently communicate your design, as part of a client presentation.  You will also be taught the necessary image editing skills in Photoshop to present an elevation as a watercolour illustration (please note advanced rendering is offered in course #7), which will demonstrate effective use of digital rendering techniques, a high level of creativity and professionalism, coupled with a strong brand identity.  Digital watercolour illustrations will allow you to present your ideas in a whimsical and artistic way, whilst retaining an efficient workflow in a professional design studio.  This course will also provide you with the ability to consider alternative options, when you need to produce illustrations quickly but without compromising on quality (FotoSketcher).  The various styles of elevations produced are incredibly multi-functional and can be incorporated in online portfolios, social media marketing, website design, blog content and e-design services.

  1. Absolutely Fantastic


    The course was absolutely fantastic. I have learned amazing new techniques and ideas that will definitely help me in my business and will transform my ability to illustrate my ideas and designs to a higher level. Anita explains everything really clearly and easily. Moreover, Anita’s support was amazing as she always follows up with me. Many thanks Anita.

  2. Another Great Tutorial


    Really intuitive course by Anita once again. I had a few issues as I have a Mac and was unable to get patterns quite right but turned out it was my graphics card :(! Thanks again Anita.

  3. So fun to create beautiful elevations!


    I really enjoyed this course! The previous courses leading up to this one are all starting to come together; everything is starting to make sense! It’s so gratifying to be able to create something individual and beautiful! I’m inspired to keep going!

  4. #5


    A really fun course. Really enjoyed learning the watercolour technique in Photoshop. It’s a great concept to present to clients and visually ‘wow’ them. The course also gives you the confidence to work with 3D models if you’re new to the world of CAD.

    Thank you Anita, I was so happy to learn how to apply a material to an object in SketchUp!
