Learn sketching and pencil shading online with us in a structured 9-week course
ART AND SCIENCE OF SHADING BEYOND BASICS
You will learn how light and shadow operate on concave forms like cups and bowls as well as how to create the illusion of convexity in your drawings. You’ll also learn how light operates on highly reflective objects.
Here, you will learn how to scale-up the basic shading process in order to shade complex subjects. The shading strategies you will learn here will ensure that, no matter how complex your subject, you will always know what to draw and shade next.
In this you will learn how to shade highly complex organic subjects by first simplifying them into their most basic volumes before layering on more complex and details light and shadow patterns. This skill is essential for any student interested in figure drawing.
In this you will learn how to shade using dynamic mark making. This includes an introduction to cross-hatching as well as how to combine different kinds of shading and mark making techniques to create compelling drawings that are uniquely yours.
ART AND SCIENCE OF CONTOURS
In this you will learn how to use the block-in technique to lay a light foundation over which you will craft your contour drawings.
You will learn how to combine the block-in technique with detailed contour drawings to create truly engaging line drawings.
You will learn how to draw using cross contour lines. Cross contour lines are essentially latitude and longitude lines that create a topographic, volumetric drawing of your subject.
You will learn to draw foreshortened objects, giving the illusion of great depth and volume on the page.
ART AND SCIENCE OF PROPORTION AND MEASUREMENT
You will learn how to use horizontal and vertical plumb lines to get a sense of how the various parts of your subject relate to one another.
In this you will discover how to use your pencil to extract the distance and direction between any two points on your subject and transfer it your page.
You will learn how to use angle sighting to triangulate the location of any conceivable point of you subject and get it on your page.
ART AND SCIENCE OF FORM AND SPACE
You will learn how to combine the foundational volumes of spheres cylinders and cubes in order to draw more complex objects.
You will learn to “sculpt on the page” by using the 3 foundational volumes as a basis for complex organic forms. This is an essential skill for every aspiring master.
Beyond The Box
In this, you will learn to create complex planar shapes from more basic boxes by turning to slice and combining them.
Drawing Rims & Handles
Cups, vases, and pitchers are common still life subjects, but students struggle with how to draw their rims and handles accurately. These techniques will help them master this.
Drawing Volumetric Still Life
You will learn how to accurately draw multiple complex still life subjects as volumes believably occupying space.

Urban sketching workshop – Beginner workshop in Bangalore
Would you like to draw, to capture what happens around you? The places you go? The things you see?
What if I told you that you absolutely can draw, even if you’ve never drawn before?
You’d probably say, “Sounds neat, but I’m not an artist…”
Everyone can sketch, even you. It could be argued that humans are actually born knowing how to draw.
That being said, modern drawing basics are learned, not inherited.
Fundamental skills, techniques, and knowledge of different media (ex: watercolors, pencils, pen and ink) can be taught, practiced, and improved upon. Thanks to this combination of your childhood aptitude and basic drawing techniques, anyone can learn to make a sketch.
Think of a travel sketchbook or a naturalist’s sketchbook, complete with colored sketches and handwritten notes.
Feeling inspired and ready to start sketching?
In this workshop, you will not only learn to sketch but also shading objects, how to make things look far away or nearer, drawing trees, buildings etc. The most important concept of perspective will be taught, which will help in drawing/sketching any subject.
You will also learn the technique of sight sizing and to use proportional divider for a better-proportioned sketching.
At the end of the workshop, you will be equipped with a wealth of knowledge with respect to
• Sketching, Shading
• Perspective drawing
• Using tools and techniques
• One Completed sketch of a given photo
Note: All materials will be provided.
