“Max the Mutt Workshops With The Pros” has held “Learn To Draw,” a one month July intensive, since 1999! These are the skills you MUST develop to be able to express your artistic vision. It’s never too soon to begin!
The Learn to Draw program offers 4 workshops that meet 5 days a week for 4 weeks: Life Drawing 1, Life Drawing 2, Principles of Drawing, and Perspective and Structural Drawing. Due to popular demand, Life Drawing 1 and Principles of Drawing are now being offering in either the mornings or the afternoons.
Principles of Drawing: Space available
Drawing is a complex art, and some basics are best taught using still life. Artists must learn to “see” in a different way than other people. In this course you will learn to scan and compare; express positive and negative space; change simple shapes to dimensional forms by indicating planes. You will then explore modelling and tonal pattern. These are the basics of creating the illusion of 3 dimensions on a 2 dimensional surface.
