Perspective Drawing:
Solid Basic Drawing Principles

Whether you are a beginner or a skilled pro, this workshop will be an excellent opportunity to reacquaint yourself with solid basic drawing principles that will greatly assist your ability to place structures into your paintings along with other forms of volume and scale. 

This class will be primarily concerned with one of the most crucial building blocks of drawing: the use of perspective to create the illusion of three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface. This will be accomplished by learning the rules of perspective as discovered and practiced by the Renaissance Masters. Linear perspective and the accurate observation of the relationships, scale, and proportions of objects in space are essential to the creation of convincing volume and mass in a drawing. This means learning to trust what your eyes see instead of what your left brain knows to be true about any object. Also, perspective and volume, once learned, can be manipulated and deliberately distorted to achieve many different results that are not true to reality, which is something else we’ll experiment with in class.

Students will learn to observe an objects’ scale and proportion in a given space: objects’ relation to their space, to each other, and between all the individual parts of each object. Perspective is challenging, no doubt about it, but once you understand the basic principles it becomes an incredibly powerful tool for you to use in drawing, and will change the way you see space around you in the world. Johnny Lee Park's background is in figure studies and printmaking, especially lithography and etching. He is a practicing photographer and teaches both photography and graphic design. Park has his MFA in photography and printmaking and has taught at a number of Middle Tennessee universities including Watkins College of Art & Design and  International Academy of Design and Technology in Nashville.
