Learn how to understand and create the illusion of depth in your artwork. How do you find the horizon line when there isn’t one? What’s the relationship of eye level to horizon line? You’ll need to know the answers to these questions when you paint or draw a figure, still life, street scene or landscape. You’ll learn when to use one point or two point perspective. (And maybe some of both!) This drawing class is designed for the painter, not the architect renderer, so it’s not complicated. This class meets in the Fresh Paint Studio on the upper level of the Education Wing.
