Let’s Bake a Master Plan!

December 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Greetings bakers! Due to ongoing issues related to the 11/9/21 Comcast outage, this webinar has been rescheduled for 12/15/21 from 12:00 to 1:30 pm.

Our speakers have worked very hard to make this a unique and fun event. We hope you will be able to join us in December. If you have a conflict, please remain registered. We will be recording the event and sharing a link afterward so you won’t miss the secret sauce. 

Thank you for your understanding.


The Kitchen Staff

Making a master plan can be just like baking a cake! You need a great framework (recipe), great plan elements (ingredients), and the right drawing/design tools (utensils). You need to practice (and practice more) until you find your own way to draw and design. Most importantly, you have to love the process of making, and the joy of watching others enjoy places you helped create.

During this interactive free online workshop organized by the APA-IL Professional Development Committee in collaboration with ASLA Illinois, experts Ferhat Zerin, FAICP, Pericles Georgopoulos, and Sarah White, AICP, ASLA, LEED, will help you improve your hand drawing skills and show you how you can draw a great (and delicious) master plan. This master plan cooking class is open to everyone –

  • First-time bakers: If you have no hand-drawing skills – come and learn the basics of drawing a plan.
  • Food Critics: If you are a municipal planner – see how a quick hand drawing can fix a plan you are reviewing.
  • Julia Child Proteges: If you are an experienced designer – join us for a fun drawing workout!

Just like with baking, the best way to learn is through hands-on experience. Experts will teach attendees the basics of hand drawing using three activities. These activities include tracing a master plan, improving an existing plan, and using your new skills to create a master plan.

Drawing Supplies & Handout: In order to participate, attendees must print out the workshop handout(s) and be prepared with the needed drawing supplies. Details on the needed drawing supplies can be found in the handout which is provided upon registration.
