About This Class

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.

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.  To get started, check out THE ART & SCIENCE OF DRAWING / Week 1: Basic Skills.

This is the sixth lesson in the series. This lesson will introduce you to how people relate to lines and marks emotionally and psychologically and will also get you experimenting with line quality.
