Artacademy-USA has a different approach toward drawing classes.
Art studio divides drawing lessons into 2 parts:
- Drawing class for beginners - that course dedicated primarily to those you start the art education process and wish either to try and find out whether it suits their needs or need step by step tuition.
We always stand on flexibility, therefore it means that all programs in studio group sessions have an individual approach to every student.
For instance, you came with a photo of a landscape that you wish to draw. We are happy to help you and all necessary theoretical material, perspective, shades and all that will be in your practical drawing classes.
- Drawing for intermediate level artists - should you consider improving your skills in drawing of different objects and accumulating substantial knowledge in complex form drawing we are happy to assist you.
- Academic drawing for professionals seeking special training. That level of academic studies usually refers to advanced initial knowledge of drawings technique for further training of anatomy, model drawing, mastering portrait painting as well as portfolio preparation for university entry exams.
What do you need for the drawing classes?
Practically nothing but your good mood and strive for artistic perfection. We have oil types of paints, oil, acrylic, watercolor, canvases, cozy working stations easels, lights, separate for every student.
Will I be able to create pictures after my first drawing classes?
Actually yes, with a certain amount of desire, everyone, even after the first 2 hours session can use the substantial knowledge received in order to paint a simple picture, landscape, a sketch of fruits at home.
How to mix basic colors, how to make preliminary drawing all that will be your first lesson practice.
Nevertheless, we do recommend to start with a basic level of academic drawing classes should one consider long-term art educations or even a career as an artist. The very essence of any painting medium is an ability of the artist to transcend the imaginary or real world on the canvas. That projection, the message has to be decoded by an onlooker, therefore, having realistic, professional drawing in your skills list will provide endless opportunities as to both classical or abstract art paintings.
What will be my first picture at drawing classes?
It depends on your wish to follow the academical path where we use geometrical figures to teach perspective, composition, forms, shading and lights, hatching, or more relaxed, hobby way where oil or watercolor, acrylic paints are used to create beautiful landscapes, still lifes and abstractions.
Recommendations refer to academic drawing program since through simple geometrical figure one can accumulate basic drawing knowledge in order to advance in any other medium afterwards.
Following that notion, a geometrical cube that accumulates all basic knowledge of perspective, hatching, shadows and lights will be your 4-hour step toward professional art education. During that session, you will learn how to build the realistic figure on paper, how to scale and hatch, what is form itself and methods of revealing it on paper.
