Perspective Drawing (ONLINE) DR 706ES_ON


with Charles Muldowney

Calendar Next available session starts May 26, 2021 at 1 pm, runs for 3 weeks

Linear perspective is a powerful tool to aid the artist in representing three-dimensional reality on a two-dimensional surface. Study the basic principles of perspective to draw buildings, objects, figures, and interior spaces convincingly from reality or imagination. Presentations and skills-focused exercises will guide students through the basics of one-, two-, and three-point perspective, including measuring and drawing ellipses, arches, and interior features. Learn the history and use of perspective through the centuries.

Learning Objectives

  • Students will learn to use the techniques for creating a perspective drawing.
  • Students will better understand and appreciate the use of perspective in the art of the masters.
  • Students will learn the history of the discovery and development of perspective.
  • Students gain the confidence to expand their own artistic expression.

Feeling isolated in your studio? Unsure of your next step? A group critique is an excellent means of both relieving artistic uncertainty and finding inspiration in the ideas and artwork of others in a supportive environment. Join noted artist and PAFA faculty James Toogood for supportive, non-judgmental feedback on your artwork while helping you to dispel feelings of self-criticism or discouragement. Learn to perceive doubt as a tantalizing entry for creative investigation rather than a destructive force.
