About this Workshop

This is a 1-day event where we take you through all the fundamental aspects of understanding and drawing a picture in perspective.

We will assume you have little to no experience with how perspectives work and therefore we start from the beginning.

The idea will be to quickly move through some historic examples and simple exercises. The hope will be to develop your understanding for perspective with a series of worked examples (paper and soft pencils – not digital) with the aim of completing 1 or 2 simple perspective sketches.

This workshop is not about creating perfect pictures but developing a toolkit to understand, translate and convey on paper, the three-dimensional world we see around us.

What will I learn?

  • an understanding of the difference between using 1 – 2 and 3 point perspectives
  • an understanding of the need for a horizon line and vanishing points
  • a series of worked examples based on the above concepts
  • understanding how to reverse-engineer perspective cues from photographs
  • how to quickly thumb-nail perspectives frameworks

Who is this course suitable for?

  • those interested in drawing
  • those wishing to improve their drawing techniques
  • those wishing to get involves in urban sketching etc.
  • general art students and art lovers

What do I need to bring?

  • A3-size cartridge paper 90 gsm white
  • soft lead pencils 2B – 6B (something soft)
