URBAN PERSPECTIVE

Designed for artists keen to expand their repertoire of subject matter and drawing skills to include interiors as well as the built environment, this course prepares you to cope with the complex demands of urban sketching, which may look deceptively simple but often requires a good grasp of linear perspective and foundational drawing skills.

ABOUT THIS COURSE

This beginners course starts off with the fundamentals of linear perspective. You will start with a firm grounding on the principles of one- and two-point perspective. There will be exercises and hands on practice to get you comfortable with visualizing objects and interiors in proper perspective. You will gradually loosen up your sketches into a more fluid and expressive style.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

One of the key highlights of this course is the indispensable understanding of linear perspective, which together with strong composition and attention to details, will add depth and structure your urban landscapes. Also included is an opportunity to step out of the classroom for an outdoor sketching field trip, so make sure you have your hat and suntan lotion ready!
