Description

This course contains the third and fourth installments of The Art & Science of Drawing series. In this course you’ll learn to do drawings that give the illusion of 3-Dimensional objects occupying deep space.

You’ll start by learning how to draw the sphere, the cylinder and the cube, the foundational shapes that all other forms, no matter how complex, are constructed from.  Next you’ll learn to combine and manipulate these forms to draw any form observable or imaginable.  You'll even get an introduction to linear perspective! Never again will your drawings appear flat and lifeless on the page.

The Art & Science of Drawing is a remarkable program that will teach you how to draw one day at a time. The program is simple, each day you’ll watch one video lesson that introduces an essential drawing skill, and then do the recommended practice. The Art & Science of Drawing is overflowing with powerful insights into the drawing process and offers some of the clearest, most accessible drawing instruction available. Many of the tools and techniques you'll learn here are rarely seen outside of private art academies.

This is the perfect course for painters who want to add depth to their work and the perfect primer for figure drawing. Learning how to think and draw in terms of volume is what makes the difference between good artists and great artists. 

This course contains the third and fourth installments of an 8-part series.  If you're a beginner, we recommend going through the entire series in the following order:
Basic Skills
Dynamic Mark Making
Form & Space
Measuring & Proportion
Contours
Shading Fundamentals
Shading: Beyond the Basics
