You will learn the most important aspects of drawing from the very beginning. You will build the foundation for rendering basic objects and environments, and become ready to practice these techniques with more complex subjects in future drawings. All the techniques of the Essential Drawing Course are done in monochrome (black and white) so you can keep your focus on structure, tonality, shading, form, and texture.
This drawing course includes 12 online classes, and one free bonus Figure Drawing session on Saturdays. The Essential Drawing classes take place in real-time every Tuesday at 6:30pm Pacific Time via Zoom. You can join the course at any time – each class is an independent technique.
You will start from the very beginning, with the foundation of the drawing skill. In 12 weeks you will learn all the basics of drawing: how to express the light, the form, the space, and how to bring any object to life on paper. The topics include landscape, interior, still life, floral bouquet, face, and other subjects. Lessons cover line drawing, tonal drawing, shading, composing, sketching, and refining. You will become comfortable with drawing objects realistically, expressing positive and negative shapes, creating the illusion of 3-D, constructing a space in perspective, and adding finishing touches. Materials you will be drawing with are pencil, charcoal, pen/ink, conte, and oil pastel. You can enter this course at any time, as each class is a stand-alone lesson. Home assignments are provided after each class so that you could practice the skill you learned in class, on your own, and strengthen it through this additional practice.
