Good drawing skills are indispensable for any visual artist. This course provides a comprehensive and practical study of drawing methods, techniques, media, and materials. The course is designed to develop your visual awareness by unpacking the building blocks of picture-making in general, and by showing you the perceptual principles that underpin our ability to see, interpret, and record the visual world around us.

Each week, new drawing concepts and techniques will be introduced in a logical and stepwise progression, and applied to different subject matter – still life, portrait, figure, or landscape, and using a range of drawing media – from pencil and charcoal, to conté and ink.

You will also explore the works of the Old Masters, learning their methods and techniques, the common problems they encountered and the practical solutions they discovered.

Our live weekly online class allows for group discussion, questions and answers, live demonstrations, feedback on practical assignments, and much more.

You can choose to do just 5 weeks (Part 1) or the full 10 weeks (Parts 1 and 2).

Learning to draw is really a matter of learning to see – to see correctly – and that means a good deal more than merely looking with the eye.
