    I can’t wait to practice more with different perspectives. I am looking forward to learning different drawing techniques. Already I can see that this class will help teach me to observe more about how big things are in relation to each other and also to help me focus in on details.

    • Glad you are jazzed up about the class. Yes, seeing proportion is a key component to drawing successfully. Your observation skill will improve as you work on the assignments. Yea! Prof. Stephanie

    This video was so helpful! Being able to watch a short demonstration really helps me be able to fully understand what I’m trying to accomplish. I’m really excited to complete the two point perspective room project and hope it turns out well!

    Such a tremendous help to see you go through the process. Baby step at a time, that’s the way to do it.
