Drawing in Color: Perspective
(Sep. 2016)

Learn perspective drawing in Color! This class will teach you the time-honored system of one and two-point perspective, which makes man-made objects sit in believable three-dimensional space on a paper or canvas surface. Thus we can draw buildings, cars, interiors, rugs, books, tree-lined streets, and any made or designed object or structure. This system will open doors and enable more choices in your drawing and painting practice.

We will discover the importance of point-of-view in visual communication and the psychological implications of different vantage points. Color, line, and edge quality also play essential roles in creating the illusion of space in your drawing.
