Learning how to “draw like that”: contemporary realistic drawing

Ever wondered how some artists can manage to draw so life-like? How some drawings almost look like photographs, yet retain the interest and beauty of a drawing? Ever said, “how do you draw like that?”

Classes explore the qualities of achromatic mediums charcoal and graphite to focus on mark making, tone, form and technique. Using both observational drawing and reference images we will learn how to achieve realistic looking drawings by focussing on achieving correct proportion & perspective, and capturing important details and textures.

This class is for any skill level, from beginners wanting to learn how to approach representational drawing to more practiced artists wanting to hone their skills or learn a new technique.
