Perspective & Structural Drawing Courses in Toronto, Canada

Contact Our School

Perspective & Structural Drawing for the Visual Arts:
Most art schools don't focus nearly enough on this highly FUNDAMENTAL art skill or don't offer this knowledge at all (qualified instructors are hard to find). Perspective drawing also can't be learned in just a few classes as most schools suggest! If a perspective program is available anywhere, it is usually only offered as part of a larger whole curriculum making it unavailable to most people.

Beginner Program Syllabus

Photo of Perspective & Structural Drawing Courses in Toronto, CanadaOne and Two Point Perspective:
Most drawings are structured on one or both of these two basic principles.

Perspective Measurements:
Simple measurements that determine size relationships between various elements in a drawing (including space), quickly & easily in perspective.  No more guessing for hours. 

Ellipses:
Ellipses (circles in perspective) are essential to know and understand in all drawing as they are everywhere.

Inclined Planes & Auxiliary Vanishing Points:
Most surfaces (planes) we draw are parallel or perpendicular to the ground.  We use auxiliary vanishing points to draw the other more challenging surfaces.

Three Point Perspective:
Usually used to draw extreImage of Perspective & Structural Drawing Courses in Toronto, Canadame up or down views.  Very often applied in animation, cartooning and graphic novels for dramatic effect.

Beginner Structural Drawing:
Every object in your drawing has structure, and understanding that structure in perspective will greatly
enhance your ability to draw the object quickly, accurately & confidently.

Forms In Nature:
Even trees, clouds and rocks have structure.  Knowing the "perspective" of a tree will give you the ability to easily draw the tree from any angle (viewpoint) you choose.

Intersecting Planes:
We learn how to properly construct intersecting planes by drawing many different types of roof tops.  Knowing how to correctly draw these intersecting surfaces is essential in drawing architecture but is also necessary in most everything else we draw.Photos of Perspective & Structural Drawing for the Visual ArtsArchitectural Interior:  We analyze and draw a 1-point perspective room interior that you choose, real or fantasy.  We learn how to arrange & design your room to sell it visually for the viewer.  A terrific showcase drawing for Interior Designers & Architects.

Architectural Exterior:
We draw Victorian building exteriors (from models).  A great portfolio piece, especially for Architects.

Intermediate Program Syllabus

Composition:
In every drawing we create, we compose a view of what we want the viewer of our drawing to see.  Understanding the "rules" of
composition will help us greatly with constructing an effective and visually pleasing drawing.

Shadows:
Picture of Perspective & Structural Drawing Courses in Toronto, Canada
Of course, shadows are everywhere, but many artists avoid drawing shadows because they don't know how to.  Adding technically correct shadows to your drawing gives it immediate credibility & life.

Reflections:
We will understand how reflections work and how to construct them.  Reflective surfaces are all around us and now you can include reflections from mirrors, metal, ice or water in your drawings.

Spiral Staircase:
This is a great portfolio piece.  A precisely drawn spiral staircase immediately shows your artistic abilities to a prospective client, employer or art school.

Drawing From A Plan:
By using a floor plan & side elevation, we can draw a place or object accurately in three-dimensional perspective.  These "technical drawings" serve many purposes for architects, interior designers, engineers and planners.

Intermediate Structural Drawing:
Every object in your drawing has structure, and understanding that structure in perspective will greatly enhance your ability to draw the object quickly, accurately & confidently.

Architectural Interior:
We analyze and draw a 2-point perspective room interior that you choose, real or fantasy.  We'll learn how to arrange & design your room to sell it visually for the viewer.  A terrific showcase drawing for Interior Designers & Architects.

Actual Architectural Interior:
We go to and draw an actual grand architectural interior (very accessible in Toronto).  A great portfolio piece, especially for Architects.

Actual Architectural Exterior:
We also draw an actual exciting exterior landscape (drawn from the comfort of indoors).  This would also be a great highlight in a portfolio.
