Learning to draw with perspective!!

By camilla @ 6:12 pm

lineal perspective horizon line.

The Wooden Horse Arts Guild three part Drawing Class using Linear and Atmospheric Perspective drawing techniques to Beginning or “just learning to draw” artists, is coming to a close. Sunday, Feb. 7 at 11:30 a.m.

Our students have become more and more excited about learning something “NEW”  .  Of course, Lineal Perspective is not exactly NEW..In fact, It has been  used by artists since Leonardo da Vinci!

During the first class, the students learned that in a drawing with a one-point perspective, the parallel lines are represented as converging so as to give the illusion of depth and distance…the converging lines meet at a single vanishing point and all shapes get smaller in all directions.

Our second class again taught us one point and added the two point with atmospheric perspective..Examples – SKY – TREES – COLOR.

The Third Class (Putting it all together) in this series will be held on Sunday, Feb.7, 11:30 am to 3 p.m. (Something to do while everyone else is watching the Super Bowl! (We have Snacks, too).

Call 988-4300 if you want to join us. There is a fee of $40.    (The Place:721 East Hill, North Troy)

O yes, let’s not forget our teachers! Pat Sanders..Visual Arts teach at North Country Union High School. And, Heather Brault, certified art teacher and a joy to learn from.  Both of them talented and fun!
