Our high Mentor (12) to Participant (18) ratio is designed to encourage each course participant to interact several different design perspectives, to free them from tedious duties, and to allow focus on their individual and collective design experience.  Our mentors will guide you through a series of 24 lecture presentations, several manufacturers' demonstrations, and over 24 hours of intensive hands-on field work; interactive lectures begin daily at 8:00 a.m. and after dark field work ends at 10:30 p.m.  Our large collection of state-of-the-art lighting equipment represents most major landscape lighting manufacturers is the largest and most extensive in the USA; it allows you the flexibility and freedom to field test a wide array of equipment and to explore landscape lighting productively and creatively.

Your learning experience is centered on landscape lighting design.  You will work in three teams of six to design, create, and install a temporary landscape lighting 'mock-up', each under the instruction of a team of three landscape lighting professionals.  On the final evening, you and your team will present your project to Jan, your mentor team, and an invited public audience (generally about 100 visitors).

Upon completion of the Intensive Course you will be able to conceptualize, plan, and spec beautiful landscape lighting designs.  You will take with you the technical skills of design graphics and documentation, low-voltage lighting system installation, and the proper maintenance procedures to insure the longevity and beauty of your clients' landscape lighting systems.
