Bob Lang teaches a variety of classes on using Google SketchUp, and is available to teach classes tailored to the needs of your group or organization. Bob has studied the common things that new users to SketchUp struggle with, including those who are completely new to computer design, and those who need to recover from experience with other programs. After several years of hands-on teaching, Bob has developed methods to get new users up and running, with a thorough understanding of what is happening in the model. With that foundation in place, SketchUp can be used to model almost anything.
In the past year, I have taught SketchUp to woodworkers, custom cabinet makers, interior designers, corporate store planners, and middle and high school educators.
Classes follow the general model of Bob’s SketchUp Books “Building Blocks of SketchUp” and “Woodworkers Guide to SketchUp”. In fact, these books were actually developed from class experiences. Classes include plenty of one-on-one coaching as students practice between presentations of topics and techniques.
Classes are available several times a year in Cincinnati, or we can travel to your location.
General information about Bob Lang’s SketchUp Classes is at the bottom of this page.
We are actively looking to teach others how to teach SketchUp, especially teachers in middle schools and high schools. Please contact Bob by e-mail, or call 513-509-3894 to discuss hosting a class for your group or organization.
Our “Woodworking With SketchUp” class has been taught at woodworking schools like the Marc Adams School of Woodworking, Kelly Mehler’s Woodworking School, the Woodworking in America Conference, the Annapolis School of Woodworking, and the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship. If a school near you isn’t on this list, get in touch with them, and put them in touch with us. We are also available to travel to your woodworking club or guild to teach SketchUp, usually at a lower per student price than classes we host or classes at schools.
