Drawing Class: Basics

The drawing classes are recommended for students at Art One Academy so they can prepare themselves for any other courses in visual arts.

We live in 3-D world. All objects no matter how small or large, have heights, width and depth, however drawing are created on a 2-D or flat surface. When you look at a drawing or a painting, and see that it looks real, what you are observing is that the artist has created the illusion of three detentions on two dimensional surface. Creating this illusion is one of the goals of good drawing.

To create the illusion of three dimensional space, students use shading to create a sense of volume rather then drawing outlines of objects.

And this is what our students learn at our drawing classes.
