Come hone your drawing skills and help CPPLA celebrate our past, mark our present and commemorate our history! The department of Landscape Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona is celebrating 60 years of landscape architecture education, leadership and change in Southern California. In recognition of this milestone, CPPLA has organized a series of events across 2017, including an Sketching Design Ideas workshop on January 19, 2017 with Richard Scott, author of "Sketching - from Square One to Trafalgar Square" (an excellent supplemental book- especially for LA 251). We invite you to come celebrate with us as we continue to pursue a bravely curious future.
