What you'll learn in this sketch class:

Do not let a lack of confidence in your ability to draw prevent you from expressing your ideas quickly and successfully. Give yourself the freedom to scrawl your concepts on paper or on the back of a napkin and you will reach a new level of spontaneous creativity. 

Even in the age of digital drawing, the ability to sketch will enable you to effectively communicate with clients and colleagues. Either on the spur of the moment or by routine, learn to embrace your pen and paper and you will be surprised at how sketching can save time, improve work flow, enhance communication, boost creativity, and be enjoyable.

This course will instruct you on the use of basic drawing materials, simple shapes and composition for creating informative diagrams quickly and with minimum effort.

Question from JILL C.
Does the class focus on interiors specifically? Or, does it provide general instruction for drawing materials and techniques?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Jill! By design, the course is not a traditional drawing class. As outlined in the course description it is an exclusively-interiors sketching class for students who are having difficulty expressing themselves without the use of their digital tools. In four sessions the instructor quickly takes the students past the issue of thinking they are 'not able to draw' and into the concept of making supportive diagrams quickly to aid in their discussion of interiors projects with their clients. To encourage the student to own their mark we use ballpoint pens exclusively; no other traditional drawing materials are used as they only slow the student down.

Question from elizabeth l.
What sort of exercises do you do to learn the basics of perspective sketching? What did you learn? Do you feel more confident making sense out of what you see and turn into 2dimensional drawing?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Elizabeth! The instructor gently presents the basics of one, two, and three-point perspective, using simple visual tricks to determine the difference. And you will practice and practice using eye-to-hand coordination and quick determination of whichever perspective is appropriate for the specific sketch. Hope this helps!

Was a very encouraging class. Great teacher. Core concepts taught, but most of all, forces you to sketch, become confident, and feel comfortable sketching
