Welcome to Drafting! My name is Steve Brucker and, while continuing a 23-year career as a professional architect, I teach the Drafting classes at NCHS. I am a proud graduate of Clemson University with a Bachelor of Science in Design and a Master of Architecture degree. I enjoy reading books (made of paper), travel (especially to national parks) and watching my Clemson Tigers (on TV or in the stands).
Drafting involves Creativity, Communication and Critical Thinking while also being a 21st Century Skill. When combined with Architecture, it becomes an art and a science while also being rigorous and relevant…
Art: it involves materials, colors, form, scale and proportion
Science: it is concerned with ecology, chemistry, materials, gravity and weather
Rigorous: it incorporates language, math, history, health and safety
Relevant: it surrounds us as we use our homes, schools, offices, stores, hospitals, etc.
No other profession includes all this and spans thousands of years from the Pyramids to the Freedom Tower!
The Drafting classes offered at NCHS include the following:
Drafting 2 - Residential Architecture
Drafting 3 - Residential Architecture (Honors)
By completing these classes a student will be well-prepared to begin a college major in Architecture, Landscape Architecture or Engineering . . . or to enter the workforce as a Computer-Aided Drafter working in these or many other professions.
