Drawing Space and Form (Tuition-Free)

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 exploring in scale change, overlap, and line variation, value, composition, as well as the basic concept of one-point perspective. You will learn to draw from observation and complete practice lessons using photocopied images. The still life setup and the beautiful Fleisher Sanctuary will be additional sources of study.
