Unlock Your Drawing Potential with Perspective

Why Learn Perspective

Perspective affects everything in the world around us. If you try to draw the world around you with knowing how perspective affects the objects it can be very difficult. By learning perspective you will be able to analyze the challenges perspective presents with and then more easily find the solutions to draw the scene effectively. Understanding perspective is the path to intermediate and advanced drawing. It will change how you see and draw the world around you.

What You Will Learn

In this class we explore the foundations of perspective to push your drawing skills to the next level. We study concepts of 1 point, 2 point and 3 point perspective. We explore the principles of identifying vanishing points and the horizon line. We continue learning about circles and how perspective affects them so we can draw the more accurately. We also learn to draw basic houses and many other objects using these perspective drawing principles.
