Skills-based learning is one of the most effective methods for teaching not only skills in drawing but also in the analysis of artworks.
In the Classical Drawing Basic course, students will learn to unleash the power of observation. Students will learn to recognize the natural world in abstracted form and will be able to break down the pictorial field in abstracted lines, textures, shapes, and values. We at the Atelier believe that honing the student’s visual perception increases his or her visual intelligence regardless of age.
In this course, students will learn a more disciplined drawing process and cultivate a workflow aligned with the atelier approach. The student will learn the ways lines express ideas and be more attuned to planar forms and tones. The student will be able to distinguish the elements of art, learn to identify and correct drawing errors, find accurate angles, and combine lines to form mass.
