About this class

Translating a 3D visual onto a 2D piece of paper is tricky. This course covers the fundamentals of translating the image your eyes see, into tremendous works of art and all takes place in the elegant V&A museum.

Did you know?

The longest drawing in the world is 9,582 meters long – but we don’t expect you to complete that in a class!

In this class

Our friendly, experienced tutors cover the basic of drawing by hand and guide you through the fundamentals of transcribing real-world visuals into two-dimensional drawings.

  • Line, tone and scale.
  • Shading for depth and atmosphere/feel of a drawing
  • Basic physical tips, such as positioning, materials, subjects and sizing.
  • Techniques to help you “loosen up” and engage with drawing in new, fun, dynamic ways.
  • An understanding of “quality of line” and how this can affect the feel of your drawings and what you communicate with your drawings.

Now you can

  • improve your drawing techniques
  • experiment with your personal style
  • improve on past drawings
