Drawing Space and Form

Learn techniques and concepts to enhance the illusion of three-dimensional form, and depth of space in your drawings, using linear perspective. Once you are drawing several objects in relationship to each other in space, you are already dealing with perspective whether you realize it or not! We will discuss and practice scale change, overlap and variation of line weight as well as basic concepts of one and two point perspective. You will draw diagrammatically and from observation using photocopied images, still life, the beautiful Fleisher Sanctuary, and the figure in the environment.
