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.

MEASURING & PROPORTION 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.

In this course you’ll learn how to draw using a series of measuring tools and strategies that will take the guesswork our of the drawing process. You'll learn how to determine the proportions of any subject and draw them accurately on the page. You’ll also learn how to use angle sighting to triangulate the location of any point on your subject to make sure your drawings are always accurate and in proportion.

This course is perfect for artist of any medium looking to improve their accuracy and a great primer for painting and figure drawing.

MEASURING & PROPORTION 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 drawing each focusing on a different measuring technique.

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:

The Art & Science of Drawing:

The Art & Science of Figure Drawing:

If you've got some drawing experience, feel free to mix and match The Art & Science of Drawing courses to suit your personal needs as an artist!
