Learn Perspective in One Morning

Instructor: Joyce Senesac


Monday. May 21 starting at 9:30 am


A common problem we face as artists is putting buildings in our paintings in proper perspective.

Learn how to put those basic houses and buildings in your paintings the easy way with guesstimation/simplification. Learn a step-by-step method to drawing houses free-hand rather than measuring with a ruler to give your buildings a more painterly character. Learn to feel confident putting those buildings in your paintings.

We will practice drawing basic structure on, above and below eye level. Materials will be provided. Most of the class will be in the gallery but toward the end we will move to the porch to make very loose sketches of some of the surrounding buildings.

When you leave you will feel confident in your ability to do this on your own. Feel free to bring in any work you are unsure of if you’d like the perspective checked. Participants are encouraged to stay beyond the end if they need to; don’t leave until you feel you’ve got it.
