Perspective Drawing with Visiting Artist Megan McGlynn #917

Whether you’re creating a still life, landscape, or abstraction, understanding the rules of perspective will create new depths in your work. Perspective gives the impression of height, width, and depth in relation to other objects. In this class, students will work from life as well as their imaginations to learn this illusion of space and volume on a two-dimensional surface. One, two, and three-point perspective will be covered.
