Fundamentals of Perspective Drawing

In this beginners class we will focus on the fundamentals of perspective drawing. 

We will start out by learning some of the basic concepts and techniques that work together to create a sense of depth in an image. Then we'll discuss the visual effect of foreshortening and why objects look different when we look at them from different viewing angles. Next we'll learn about some of the basic steps to construct a scene in linear perspective. We will discuss the different types of linear perspective and how to work with each. 

Finally, we'll discuss how to draw ellipses and cylinders in perspective. Using the techniques discussed during this class, you'll have a better understanding on how perspective works and be equipped with everything you need to create the illusion of depth in your drawings.

Cost is $10 + $10 of materials (MakerBar members pay only $10). No computer or tools required. Sketch pads and drawing pencils will be provided.
