Linear Perspective is a system of drawing that enables the artist to create the illusion of spatial depth on a 2D surface. This class will study mechanical perspective or using guides to construct space and empirical perspective or judging perspective as the eye sees it. We’ll also investigate aerial perspective which looks at how atmosphere affects depth perception. This is a great class for one just beginning or for artists who wish to improve their ability to portray depth in drawings or paintings. Students will need to purchase a cork back metal 18” ruler for the class but all other supplies will be provided by the Academy. ____________________________________________________________ SENIOR DISCOUNTS (ages 62+) Enter your DOB and apply the coupon code ‘SENIOR’ for a $25 discount off any class over $75.
