Perspective & Structural Drawing Classes in Toronto, ON

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.

This program is designed and taught by artist Dale Desrochers, who's worked in the art & animation industry for 30+ years as a background artist, designer and art instructor. His mission is to fill these large voids in art training with his very ACCESSIBLE, COMPREHENSIVE & AFFORDABLE program. He has the knowledge, patience, dedication and greatest desire to have you understand the concepts & logic behind everything you draw, in and outside of class.

Unique Perspective Drawing Program:

Photo of Perspective & Structural Drawing Classes in Toronto, ONThe unique and insightful approach to learning PERSPECTIVE & STRUCTURAL DRAWING in this program makes it easily understood and memorable.  Your artistic confidence and skills will quickly build, as each systematic and comprehensive class is taught in a logical order at a comfortable pace.

• Through simple perspective principles, you will draw structurally "complex" objects easily.
• You will understand how the viewer of your drawing plays an important role in how you will execute your composition.
• You will see how your "cone of vision" affects your drawing.
• You'll learn to apply "line quality" and all the rest of the essential skills artists should know to draw confidently, accurately, quickly & convincingly!

About The Instructor:"Dale brings his numerous years of vast experience and knowledge of art and animation into the classroom to help aid in his teaching. Dale is able to explain concepts and ideas repeatedly till you understand it and has the most patience I have come across in any instructor in my last 22 years of schooling.

Dale exceeds your expectations with the attention he provides to all his students whether it is to answer questions, repeat concepts, or even talk about stuff outside the classroom. I looked forward to every class and every class had me looking forward to the next one - especially to learn something new and different but, most of all, to learn it from an extremely patient and extremely knowledgeable yet fun."

What Did You Like About The Program?"I liked everything about the program. Ever since the first moment I met Dale to the last class I have had with him, it has been nothing but a combination of fun and interesting conversations with a whole lot of teaching of perspective drawings in the most comprehendible ways possible. Each class was a better experience than the previous one. The class helped me make numerous drawings and changes to already existing ones to enhance them and express my knowledge in perspective drawings."

Previous Art Training? Did This Program Help More And Why?"I had very little to almost no training in perspective drawing. And my art training was just high-school art classes and nothing else. Prior to taking Dale's perspective drawing classes I had an Architectural Drafting Certificate, yet had no knowledge about perspective drawing. In my 3 years of schooling, I never received the appropriate training needed to create perspective artwork.

Through Dale's class I have been able to make a successful portfolio that impressed the portfolio committee for a school I had applied to in Australia. I eventually got in and in 3 years time, I will be a proud graduate of a Masters of Architecture program from a prestigious university all thanks to perspective drawing classes I took from a person named Dale Desrochers."

Dale's Welcome:

Photos of Perspective & Structural Drawing for the Visual ArtsPerspective drawing is something that can't be "guessed at" if you want an accurate and believable drawing, whether your art is realistic or non-realistic. Most practicing or future artists come to my program realizing that their lack of perspective drawing knowledge is what has been holding them back from realizing their dreams of becoming a better artist.

In my program, your artistic confidence and skills will systematically build with every lesson, as each class begins where the last class finished off. My efforts are to make perspective drawing become logical & memorable so that you can draw when you are no longer in class. You will definitely receive personal instruction and I will keep with you until you hopefully understand every concept...

...Yes, most everyone tells me they have fun while gaining this valuable knowledge in my classes. Perspective drawing doesn't have to be stressful and frustrating to learn!...Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. If you come to class, bring plenty of smiles,… and a pencil & paper might also be good!

Thank you and have a great day :)
