Description

Here, in parts three and four of THE ART & SCIENCE OF DRAWING series, 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.

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 order.  If you've got some drawing experience, feel free to mix and match The Art & Science of Drawing courses to suit your personal needs as an artist!

Who is the target audience?
  • Any artist wanting to improve their drawing or painting skills.
  • Any artist wanting to create more dynamic and believable drawings or paintings.
  • Any student preparing for a career in the arts.

Artist and Instructor

Drawing has been my lifelong passion.  After studying at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles, I continued to study numerous from of drawing including the timeless traditions of the old masters as well as cutting-edge contemporary practices.

I have been teaching drawing for over 20 years at studios, museums, galleries, and schools throughout California and have recently begun working with Artists Network, one of the largest publishers of art instructional resources in the nation, to develop online figure drawing courses taught to an international student base.

I'm thrilled to bring you a lifetime of drawing and teaching experience to this unique program. I look forward to working with you.  Cheers!
