New Art Club Drawing Class: Space & Perspective in Drawing

Dale Farland

Residents of SaddleBrooke Ranch (SBR) have been enjoying the drawing classes offered by instructor and SBR artist Lisa Friedman so much, she is offering a new class. “Space & Perspective in Drawing” is the next class in the drawing series being offered by the Art Club and is another step on the pathway toward drawing more realistic depictions of one’s subject matter and creating a sense of depth and volume.

This intermediate-level 6-hour class is divided into three 2-hour sessions and will introduce the students to the basic art element of “space.” You will learn about what space is, and how to create the illusion of space (positive and negative) via several methods, including the use of 1-point and 2-point perspective. You will use pencils and Conte crayons in our enjoyable exploration of these concepts.

The class level is intermediate, and it is recommended that students have already taken Beginning Drawing I and II or have had some drawing experience.
