Intro to Perspective

dates: 11 / 24 / 2022 - 12 / 22 / 2022

Learn the fundamentals of perspective to build a foundation you can build on for years to come!

In this class, you will learn:

  • 1, 2, and 3 point perspective

  • Inclined Planes
  • Vanishing Trace

  • And More!


Perspective is the foundation that all representational art is built on. Understanding perspective is critical for students with professional aspirations. If your goal is to pursue concepting, illustration, fine art, animation, matte painting, or almost any other profession based in representational art, a functional understanding of perspective is a must. This class is designed as an introduction to perspective that will help create a foundation that can be built upon for years to come. We will cover topics such as 1, 2, and 3 point perspective, boxes, circles, ellipses, cylinders, inclined planes, vanishing trace, depth measuring, and more. Most of the term will focus on technical perspective information and the last week will focus on relating that information back to head and figure drawing. Warning: There is A LOT of information to cover in 5 weeks. This class is designed to make technical information accessible to everyone but the demos will likely be in the 1.5 to 2 hour range, just so you know.
