Course Description

Welcome to everyone. In this SKETCHU PRO course we will start from an initiation level to end up dominating the program at a very high level. We will learn all the SKETCHUP PRO tools such as: materials, styles, scenes, animations, sunlight, connection with Google-Earth, photomatch, dynamic components, terrain, plugins and much more. But the REALLY INTERESTING thing about this course is that we will do all of this in a SUPER PRACTICAL WAY. We will do it while MODELING A SINGLE BUILDING: THE BARCELONA PAVILION designed by the architect Mies Van Der Rohe in 1929.

It is a course in which I have carried out a very large synthesis exercise of all my knowledge in order to offer you a course where ALL THE SKETCHUP TOOLS are seen ONLY WITH ONE MODEL. The goal is to make LEARNING MORE FLUID AND FUN.

Through this project you will learn:

  • Control the scale of the model
  • Correct use of groups and components
  • Using dynamic components
  • Model order through the use of layers
  • Correct use of materials
  • Correct use of furniture and exterior elements to SKP
  • Correct placement of north and sunlight of the scene
  • Artistic use of styles
  • Use of sections
  • Dimensions and text
  • Making animations in mp4 format from our scenes

SKETCHUP PRO is a 3D modeling program from the Trimble company. It is a program designed for architects, urban planners, landscapers, engineers, draughtsman, quantity surveyors, interior designers, product designers and, in fact, any professional in the design sector. It stands out, unlike other 3D modeling programs, for its intuitive interface that allows you to work fluidly, being able to deal with the most complex projects in the same way. It is for this reason that more and more people demand their knowledge.

Manuel Pallares

Architect + Graphic designer

Hola a tod@s,

Mi nombre es Manuel Pallarés. Soy arquitecto por la universidad de Alcalá de Henares y la Sapienza de Roma. Después de terminar mis estudios y trabajar en diferentes estudios me especialicé en diseño gráfico a través de un master en la escuela Artes Creactivas de Madrid, donde también empezó mi andadura como profesor. Al terminar el master resultó que necesitaban un profesor para el módulo de Photoshop, Indesign e Illustrator y allí estaba yo.

Desde entonces mi actividad profesional ha estado ligada tanto a proyectos creativos de diferente índole (diseño editorial, diseño gráfico, paisajismo, arquitectura...), pero siempre he tenido un pie en la enseñanza.

He trabajado como docente en la universidad Superior de Diseño de Valladolid (ESI). También a día de hoy trabajo como profesor en la Escuela Artes Creativas de Madrid e imparto cursos en el espacio cultural de La casa Encendida, en Madrid

La verdad es que me encanta enseñar! Supone una gran satisfacción transmitir tus conocimientos a otra persona y además nosotros los profes también aprendemos, ya que si quieres explicar algo bien, uno lo tiene que tener muuuy claro. Me tomo la enseñanza de una manera muy seria. Se lo importante que es un buen profesor en un momento determinado.

Espero que mi pasión por enseñar llegue hasta vosotros a través de estos cursos online y me declaro a vuestra disposición para todo lo que necesitéis.

Un cordial saludo,


Hello everyone,

My name is Manuel Pallarés. I am an architect from the University of Alcalá de Henares and the Sapienza in Rome. After finishing my studies and working in different studios, I specialized in graphic design through a master's degree at the Artes Creactivas school in Madrid, where I also began my career as a teacher. At the end of the master it turned out that they needed a teacher for the Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator module and there I was.

Since then my professional activity has been linked both to creative projects of different kinds (editorial design, graphic design, landscaping, architecture ...), but I have always had one foot in teaching.

I have worked as a teacher at the Universidad Superior de Diseño de Valladolid (ESI). Also today I work as a teacher at the Creative Arts School of Madrid and I teach courses in the cultural space of La casa Encendida, in Madrid.

The truth is that I love teaching! It is a great satisfaction to transmit your knowledge to another person and also we teachers also learn, because if you want to explain something well, you have to be very clear about it. I take teaching very seriously. I know how important a good teacher is at any given time.

I hope that my passion for teaching reaches you through these online courses and I declare myself at your disposal for everything you need.

A cordial greeting,

Manuel Pallares
