Methods and Techniques: Improving Drawing Accuracy
This course is designed for artists of all levels. You will be introduced to a logical process of analytical thinking using varied drawing techniques to help develop a critical eye.

In this three-week course, we will explore the history, theories, and principles of observation, naturalistic seeing, measuring, and methods of self-checking for drawing errors. Using four unique, but related, observational methods, you will learn to apply critical thinking to each situation moving you away from drawing what you “know” to drawing what you “see”.
