John, I've got a quick question for you about the ICA&CA, if you have the time to answer.
A few years back, I took a drawing course, with the intention as an Architectural novice of slowly taking courses to build up a solid understanding of Classical architecture.
There used to be what looked to be a progression of courses - with prerequisites - but now when I get the schedules I'm not seeing the progression anymore (i.e. orders, proportion, etc.)
Am I missing something? Now it seems like only a handful of the courses are still offered, and in a scattered fashion.

There is a progression. I'm not close enough to the process to be able to describe it in any detail, but this summer I taught in the intensive summer school, and two of the students received Certificates in Classical Architecture.
From the website: The course for the Certificate in Classical Architecture provides participants with a working knowledge of architectural classicism as a practical discipline. Participants learn how to draw, identify, render, and design with the elements of the classical vocabulary as well as understand the basic theoretical tenets on which the classical tradition is founded.
The Certificate is awarded to individuals who complete the following required courses or their approved equivalent: Elements of Classical Architecture I, II and III; Proportion I (Theory) and Proportion II (Practice); and Architectural Rendering in Wash. For electives participants must take at least one class in each of the three categories --Practice, Technique, and Theory -- completing a minimum of 40 course hours.
