About This Class

If you can shade a sphere, a cube and a cylinder, you can learn to shade any subject, no matter how complex.  This course will show you how.  In these five in-depth lessons you’ll learn how light operates on complex objects including concave forms like cups and bowls as well as organic subjects like fruit and vegetables.  This course even includes an introduction to cross-hatching, one of the most sought after drawing skills

The skills taught in this course are essential for anyone interested in continuing on to figure drawing.

THE ART & SCIENCE of DRAWING is a remarkable new program that will teach you how to draw one day at a time. The program is simple, each day you’ll watch one video lesson that will introduce an essential drawing skill, and then do the recommended practice. THE ART & SCIENCE of DRAWING 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 seen outside of private art academies.  

This course is the eighth and final installment of an 8-part series.  If you're a beginner, we recommend going through the entire series in order.  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!
