This course is the perfect starting point for beginner artists, but is also suited to people with some drawing experience who want to hone their skills.
The course covers basic and more advanced drawing skills including: accurate observation and representation, capturing light and shade for three dimensional effects, observation of negative space, and aspects of perspective. A wide range of exercises will allow you to experiment with various drawing materials, styles and techniques.
