Learn how to draw through engaging lessons and fun exercises alongside art professor David Brody. At the beginning of class, you'll see how to use contour lines, construction lines and cross-contour lines to draw objects with dimension. Next, find out how to use focal areas, focal points and compositional balance to improve your compositions. Take your skills further as you learn how to bring a lifelike sense of space to your work with perspective techniques. Move on to using value to establish a mood for your drawing and create the illusion of light, volume and space. Then, apply mark-making techniques to infuse your drawing with texture. From there, David will take the mystery out of color theory. You'll even push your figure drawing forward with essential anatomy knowledge and proportions techniques.
