Basics of Drawing

In this session we will learn about the perspective and foreshortening. Perspective is one of these approaches that will help you become a better draftsperson—especially when it comes to architecture by learning about the horizon and vanishing points. Foreshortening is the concept that describes how objects appears much shorter when viewed from a sharp angle and when the object is close to us.
Here we will learn about Human anatomy where we will get to know about three things i.e., Body proportions, Bones and Muscle groups. Starting from the stick figures, moving on to the volumes of the muscle structure and then finally the details of the body.
