About This Class

This class is for beginners in drawing. When you start to draw by yourself, sometimes a kind of embarrassment appears that can prevent you even from doing the first lines. The essence of it is a short question: what to start with? how to start?


I'll give you some hints about the consequence of the steps in working on a sketch. Ill tell you about some rules of measurement, composition and schematics. Another important thing, I will teach you how to choose the correct viewpoint to the landscape you will be drawing.

After this class you'll be able to sketch on your own with clear understanding how to start and how to come to the result you want to achieve.
