From the innovator, Brunelleschi to the master of illusion, Escher, perspective – one’s point of view – can be argued as the most fundamental principle of sketching. This brand new course focuses on the importance of perspective and spatial perception as the basis of realism, helping you develop and learn the laws of geometry to create form, dimension, distance and space within your works.

With a focus on producing quick freehand sketches of buildings, rooms, furniture, and stairs, using plans, elevation, and axonometric drawings, master both one and two-point perspective techniques. This course is suitable for all levels, those experienced artists who are looking to strengthen their fundamentals of drawing, as well as beginners.

This course is suitable for all levels. Students can move at their own pace depending on their experience, with as much support from the Tutor as they wish.

  • Beginner

    Choose a Beginners course if you are looking for a broad introduction to the medium you are studying. Students spend time learning the very basics of the taught medium, for example, how to mix colours, use different tools, set up an easel. Our Beginner courses are suitable for students with no prior experience, they tend to follow a more structured path than our other courses, ensuring each student receives the guidance they need from the tutor.

  • Beginner +

    Choose a Beginner + course if you are looking to hone your skills, focus on a specific subject area and build your confidence. These courses are suitable for those with some basic skills in and knowledge of the taught medium, but still follow a structured path with guidance from the tutor.

  • Intermediate

    Our Intermediate courses are suitable for students who have considerable prior knowledge of the taught medium or have completed a Beginners/Beginners + course with the Art Academy.

    These courses tend to be less structured and instead are tailored to the classes’ needs and the direction they want to advance in. Choose an Intermediate course if you are looking to improve your skills and have more critical discussions around the work you produce.

  • Advanced

    Choose our Advanced courses if you have considerable knowledge in the taught medium. You are expected to be able to work independently and have critical discussions around your work.

     Our Advanced courses include our Masterclasses.

All attendees must be aged 18 or over.
