This 5 day/5 evening class, created in 2010 by internationally acclaimed lighting designer Janet Lennox Moyer, is instructed by a dedicated team of 16 professional lighting designers and installers. Our attendee (18) to mentor (16) ratio, nearly one to one, is designed to allow each attendee to focus on their learning experience. Our mentors will guide you through a series of 24 lecture presentations, 8 manufacturers’ demonstrations, and 24 hours of intensive hands-on field work; we begin classes at 7:45 a.m. and return to the hotel at 10:30 p.m. Our huge collection of state-of-the-art lighting equipment, the largest and most extensive in the world, will allow you to field test equipment from all major lighting manufacturers and explore landscape lighting productively and creatively.

Your learning experience is centered on landscape lighting design. Internationally renowned lighting designer, Janet Lennox Moyer will personally advise and critique your group design concepts. 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, your team will present your project to Jan, your mentor team, and an invited public audience (generally about 200 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.

The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) mission is to champion diversity within the design professions by
promoting the excellence, community engagement, and professional development of its members. NOMA is a non-profi t organization committed to impacting our communities through design and education as we work to minimize the effect of discrimination within our profession and strengthen the awareness and career opportunities for minorities within the fi eld of architecture and design.
