All those who think they cannot make a drawing or aren’t any good at it. If you’re curious and interested in learning how to draw, or if you’re already an experienced draftsman but would like to become acquainted with another method, this is the right course for you.
Just like learning how to write, learning to draw requires that you get to know some concepts and techniques. With the appropriate instructions and with dedication and practice, everyone can learn how to draw well. After taking this course, students that were convinced they could not draw become aware of their constant evolution and that they are indeed able to learn how to draw.
The competence in terms of visual perception that is acquired through this course is important in order to stimulate creative thought and the resolution of problems, and the student benefits both at the personal and at the creative level. The experience of learning and sharing, with a strong emphasis laid on practice, makes you question certain habits and beliefs regarding the act of drawing and how well you can master it. After completing the course, the students have a set of observational drawings of their own creation, and the sense of accomplishment will be a major motivation to go on practicing drawing.
