About This Class

In this course you’ll learn how to draw using dramatic light and shadow.  All form, no matter how complex, follows a basic set of shading principles.  By understanding how light operates on the fundamental volumes of the sphere, cylinder and cube, you’ll be able to realistically shade and render basic forms and be prepared to draw and shade more complex subjects.  It’s essential that every artist and creative professional know and be able to use these powerful shading techniques.

This course is a perfect prerequisite to painting and 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 seventh 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!

I took many drawing courses they all limit teaching to the basic shape, form, volume, light and shadow in a shallow knowledge base. Mr. Brent Eviston teaches you the real nits and bits of how to construct a real drawing, know I understand why he calls it “The Art and Science of Drawing”. I hope that he will initiate The Art and Science of Painting class too.

Drawing has been my lifelong passion. After studying at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles, I have continued to study numerous forms of drawing including the timeless traditions of the old masters as well as cutting-edge contemporary practices.

I have been teaching drawing for over 20 years at studios, museums, galleries, and schools. I started teaching traditional drawing and figure drawing online in 2016 and love working with students from more than 130 countries.
