About This Class

Drawing is not a talent. It’s a skill anyone can learn. Designed for aspiring painters, graphic designers, illustrators and artists of all types, The Art & Science of Drawing series will teach you the foundation of art and design of all kinds: drawing.

In this course you’ll learn to draw in three dimensions, giving your drawings a dramatic sense of volumes and deep space.

FORM & SPACE is the third course in The Art & Science of Drawing series designed to take students from the absolute basics to advanced drawing techniques like perspective drawing and shading. Here’s how it works: 

You’ll start by learning how to draw the sphere, the cylinder and the cube, the foundational shapes that all other forms are constructed from.  Next you’ll learn to combine and manipulate these basic volumes to draw any form observable or imaginable.  You'll even get an introduction to linear perspective! Never again will your drawings appear flat and lifeless on the page.

In this course you’ll learn:

  • How to draw the sphere, the cube and the cylinder in any orientation in space.
  • How to properly draw objects in perspective.
  • How to break any form down into its basic volumes so you understand how to draw it believably in perspective.
  • How to create the illusion of three dimensional volumes existing in deep space

FORM & SPACE is a remarkable course that will teach you how to draw one day at a time. Here’s how it works: Each day you’ll watch one video lesson that will introduce an essential drawing skill, and then do the recommended practice. 

During this course you’ll create a series of volumetric drawings and perspective drawings that increase in complexity with each new drawing.

This course is overflowing with powerful insights into the drawing process and offers some of the clearest, most accessible drawing instruction available.  Many of the tools and techniques you'll learn here are rarely taught outside of private art academies. 

If you're a beginner, we recommend going through the entire series in the following order:
