About This Class

Here, in the Form & Space section of THE ART & SCIENCE OF DRAWING series, you’ll learn to do drawings that give the illusion of 3-Dimensional objects occupying deep space.

You’ll learn to combine and manipulate these forms 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.

This is the perfect course for painters who want to add depth to their work and the perfect primer for figure drawing. Learning how to think and draw in terms of volume is what makes the difference between good artists and great artists. 

This course contains days 2-5 of the fourth installments 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!

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Draw the foundational volumes, spheres, cylinders and cubes, in any orientation in space.
  • Break any form down into basic volumes and in doing so, understand how to draw them 3-Dimensionally.
  • Draw objects properly in perspective.
  • Be able to produce drawings that give the illusion of 3-Dimensional objects occupying deep space.

What is the target audience?

  • Any artist wanting to improve their drawing or painting skills.
  • Any artist wanting to create more dynamic and believable drawings or paintings.
  • Any student preparing for a career in the arts.

Brent is a gifted teacher. It is as if he has switched on a lightbulb inside my head. I'm finally able to confidently draw forms in perspective, because of his clear explanation.

Master Artist & Instructor

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.
