Perspective is not only a means of drawing volumetric forms on a flat surface. It is one of the most groundbreaking ideas in western culture. Leonardo Da Vinci deemed linear perspective "the most essential science in art." Since its advent in the Renaissance, linear perspective is still considered a discipline essential to the curriculum of the visual artist. 

This special 5-week course explores how to apply the basic principles of linear perspective to improve the spatial realism and proportional accuracy in your drawings and paintings. Students learn to see perspective as an essential tool for addressing a wide range of 2-dimensional art genres- analytical and conceptual drawing, interiors, landscapes, still life, portraiture and figure drawing.  Students will work from a variety of objects and settings.

This course is open to all drawing levels. Space is limited, so register soon.
