Years ago, my parents were members of Save Our Heritage Organization (SOHO), a group of individuals who work to preserve historic properties in our community.

My parents had a book called Images of American Architecture by Robert Miles Parker. they also have a lithograph by the artist. Those pieces were always favorites of mine.

Remembering the images drawn by  Miles Parker, I did this line drawing lesson with my students.

Students looked at line drawings and photographs of Victorian houses. We discussed architectural components and they created these images in pen.
