About This Class

This class is all about learning how to measure if your'e drawing from a live model, a piece of photo reference or still life. Measuring is probably one of the most important things that any student will have to tackle as they begin to learn the drawing process. In this class I'll show you various techniques on how to measure accurately as you begin your drawing. I will reference heavily from the book: Charles Bargue Drawing Course. 

NOTE: I don't often make recommendations, but the Charles Bargue Drawing Course book is probably one of the more important books that has helped me immensely in my own learning process. While it is absolutely not necessarily for the class, I would highly recommend investing in this book if it is possible for you to do so! If you are interested, you can have a look HERE
