"Rachel....I totally understand where you're coming from concerning the L.A.R.E. exam.  CLARB (in my opinion) is doing a disservice to our Profession by developing a testing method that is more about the "testing process itself"…"

"Stephanie makes a good point though. If you only teach one the profession does not grow as the number stays the same while one retires they've only brought on one to replace them. These courses teach many. It's a service that is offered…"

"I don't look at it as older folks helping younger folks but rather peers helping peers. As Matt has heard me say, more than half of the folks in my Corson Learning webinars are over 40 and sitting for the LARE. I respect those who took the UNE…"

"Bob, not everyone has access to someone like you! And the LARE prep classes were started to tackle how to teach more than one candidate at a time. I would say most of the LARE prep providers are doing this for the same reason you do, but they…"

"Way back when I took the U.N.E. (which is the L.A.R.E. exam today)....I think I spent maybe $200.00 max. NOW, CLARB has created this intense National Exam (that you have to take on a computer) exam was by hand where I had to do a Grading…"

Iv taken most of them i think, Persuasive Presentations, Freehand Perspective Sketching, and his new Watercolor class earlier this year, and i took Color Mastery and Sketching on Location back in 2009.  i realized that my education in Urban Regional Planning did not prepare me for a carrier in urban design.  So i needed to find classes that would fit into a fill time work schedule, and his style seemed to really click with me.  Its really taken my design and visualization skills to a new level.

Hey Brandon,

Yes, I have, in fact my biz partner just took a class with him last weekend. He is very talented. We are fortunate to be here in SoCal where anything is possible... which is how we approach our business and projects.

Brandon, i thought i was sending you a comment and it's on my page, i haven't figured this site out yet.

Thank you, I'm just starting a blog as a place to talk about my design process and how things get built. It just launched when I joined land8lounge. Students and young designers are always asking me questions about design and inspiration and i hope to use it as a place to address those questions and have fun.

Is it time for Landscape Architects to step into the spotlight?

Throughout history—with the exception of the great Olmsted, of course—it seems that landscape architects seldom find their way into the design spotlight. Lurking in the shadows of a project's sources, the portion of folks…
