Drawing 101: Form, Depth, and Volume


Category: Tag:

Foundations of drawing are a big part of becoming a success at painting and other mediums. Even if you’ve never drawn a thing – you can learn! It’s a matter of training your eye to see things as an artist does, and then translate that to paper.

As you learn about Form – Shapes – you’ll begin to discover them in objects all around you every day – even in objects you hadn’t considered to be made up of basic forms. Once you begin to grasp the concepts  of Depth in the Perspective lessons, you’ll find yourself analyzing your friends’ photos on Facebook to find vanishing points! (Just keep it to yourself, you don’t want them to think you’re an art nerd!) And in the Volume section of class, five images will be explored to see the light and shadows that give them mass.

  1. Great class to get started learning and understanding how to draw shapes in perspective, how lighting changes what you see. Instruction is well laid out to help you progress in skill. I never would have thought I could draw anything like what was learned in this class. Can’t wait for more drawing classes
