This course is aimed at those who want to improve their drawing skill by identifying the essential parts of the process of drawing.
1. Shape recognition. The application of several shapes which appear in all subjects and the use of those shapes to assist in the initial steps of drawing those subjects.
2. Shape and proportion. Utilising shapes, and their relationship to other shapes in a composition to establish height and width.
3. Tone of the items in a drawing to indicate depth. Recognition of the various tones in grayscale drawing that will help to indicate three dimensionality.
This is all done by using various exercises both during the classes and in the students own time to become comfortable with the use of different drawing materials.
The speed at which the student learns is an individual thing but gaining an understanding of the fundamentals is the best start.
