Part I: Introduction to materials, values and perspectives

Monday, February 20th at 6:30 P.M. (EST)

In Part I, Julie will introduce you to the use of an essential drawing tool: the graphite pencil. Through practice exercises, you will explore how to create gradients with graphite pencils, how to achieve a variety of values and strokes, as well as how to use graphite pencils to create 3D shapes. Atmospheric and linear perspectives will also be covered – all with explanations and concrete examples!



Part II: One-point perspective

Monday, February 27th at 6:30 P.M. (EST)

In Part II, Julie will discuss one-point perspective. Through practice exercises, you will explore two fundamental concepts: the parallel between a point of view and a horizon line and how to calculate the distance between objects in a one-point perspective. All of this with explanations and concrete examples!



Part III: Two-point perspective

Monday, March 6th at 6:30 P.M. (EST)

In Part III, Julie will discuss two-point perspective. Through practice exercises, you will explore two fundamental concepts: how to add a layout around a two-point perspective and how to address viewpoint changes. Julie will also introduce three-point perspective. All of this with explanations and concrete examples!


Part IV: Portrait

Monday, March 13th at 6:30 P.M. (EST)

In Part IV, you will explore a variety of techniques that will allow you to create an accurate and harmonious portrait: visualizing angles and values, working with precision strokes, shadow and light, etc.
