Perspective is at the heart of good drawing and painting, allowing us to translate the observable world into believable two-dimensional images and create invented spaces. Learn the fundamentals of linear perspective in clear, easy to-understand language, and apply these principles to still life, interiors and cityscape views.  This course will utilize the online learning platform, Canvas, and include videos, lectures and assignments with regular instructor feedback, plus live sessions via Zoom. Basic drawing experience recommended.
