About This Class

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 start by learning how to draw the sphere, the cylinder and the cube, the foundational shapes that all other forms, no matter how complex, are constructed from. 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 the third installment of an 8-part series. The fourth installment, Form & Space (part B), will be launched on SkillShare in March 2018.

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! The complete Art & Science of Drawing series consists of 40 mini-lessons that are designed to take you from basic skills to more advanced shading techniques.  Explore all of the classes in The Art & Science of Drawing
