Indoor Landscape Lighting Class
Several years ago we started a Landscape Lighting class in the J-term. It is a 1 credit class with 16 hours of lecture and 16 hours of hands on lab time. It meets 4 hours per day the first four days of the week, Monday through Thursday, of the first two weeks of the J-term. There were a couple of issues to overcome. How do we supply the hands on experience in the middle of winter with no leaves on the plants and in the daylight. The answer was quite simple and was supplied by the students. We use the shed, cover the windows, and get some fake plants and use our imagination. The results have been amazing and the overall response to this class has been great. We have been able to come up with some wonderful landscape lighting and lighting effects by using our ingenuity and the facilities and materials at hand.
