Drawing class level two


This is a continuing study of nature after having finished level One. In level Two we will work with light and shade, composition and the illusion of depth. Anybody who understands drawing can be part of this class which consists of 6 video’s and six zoom sessions. During the conversations with the group other things become clear and the factor of accountability keeps us on track



Course Description

Wednesday October 7 2 pm zoom 1) Negative space

We touched on the principle of negative space, Where there is an inside there is an outside. The line is like a border between two shapes. There are five basic skills of drawing.

  1. Edges
  2. Spaces
  3. Relationships
  4. Lights and shadows
  5. The Gestalt (The whole together)

Wednesday October 14 2 pm zoom 2)  The chair

The drawing of a mundane object like a chair seems too easy. You already know what the chair looks like, so why bother? But let’s dive deeper into this subject because these are lessons in perspective. Drawing a chair is as much about composition as it is about negative spaces

Wednesday October 21 2 pm zoom 3)  A corner in your house

Drawing furniture next to a door or a hallway might look like a daunting task but you are ready for it. We use measuring tools that have been used for centuries by many artists to get the right proportions.

Wednesday October 28 2 pm zoom 4)  Draw a person.

By a lack of live models, this portion of the class is theoretical and we will use line templates and measuring tools to give you an idea of how to structure the features and hair without getting into much detail too fast.

Wednesday November 4 2 pm zoom 5)  Light and shadows

Always know where the light is coming from. When there is direct sunlight you might want to stop within an hour, because the subject has changed dramatically.

Also include background and other interference.

Wednesday November 11 2 pm zoom 6)  Self portrait

Using a large mirror and one spot light draw your own face using everything you have learned thus far. Start with a light outline and measure the spaces between eyes and eye and ear.
