PAINTING ESSENTIALS: THE FOUR BASIC SHAPES

  • All objects are based on four simple underlying shapes: cylinders, boxes, bones and spheres.
  • When you learn to paint these, you’ll be able to put them together to create objects such as trees, cars, flowers, and even people.
  • In this class, you’ll learn how to sketch these four shapes in roughly, then add shading and details to start suggesting realistic objects.
  • Nils Osmar, instructor
  • This class will be offered again in Winter 2019. In the meantime, students may want to take our DRAWING FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS class, which is a good foundation for learning to both draw and paint, and take our other PAINTING ESSENTIALS class, EXPLORING COLOR.
