Drawing is the starting point of any artistic creation. In this virtual workshop for beginners, develop your technical and perceptual skills while being introduced to many strategic methods that will improve your compositional drawing abilities. Through guided instruction, students will refine their observation and rendering skills, as well as their understanding of perspective, composition, lighting, and shading. Different genres such as streetscapes, still life, portraiture (abstract and realistic) will be explored. The focus is to build perception skills and hand-eye co-ordination, because all drawing is an active way of seeing! Simple Materials List available for download above.
