Education and Training Requirements

High School

Art classes are fundamental to your training as a designer. Drawing and sketching classes will help you to get ideas down fast, and sculpture classes will encourage you to think about three-dimensional objects. A drafting course is also essential. Manual drafting will teach you how to make a technical drawing of a three-dimensional object, and, in turn, help you to visualize an object by looking at a two-dimensional drawing. Take shop courses to learn about woodworking and metal fabrication/welding, because wood and metal are among the most common materials used in contemporary furniture building.
