Description In this 12-week Live Class, Fundamentals of Drawing and Perspective, instructor Renae Wang will introduce you to observational drawing and perspective. You will focus on the basic technical skills and materials necessary to create convincing representations of still life’s and environments. Renae will demonstrate how to observe and describe a three-dimensional form on a two-dimensional plane. You will create compositions that convey volume and space. Through this Live Class, Renae will teach you the importance of utilizing lines for measurement, creating a construction drawing, applying linear perspective, and understanding value systems.
Meet Your Instructor Renae Wang is a California-based artist working primarily in oil. Her subject matter focuses on nocturnal landscapes and “non-places” like gas stations, diners, and airports. Her work is characterized by vibrant colors under artificial lights and immersive compositions with first-person points-of-view. These nocturnal paintings explore the universal human condition of isolation, as well as its relationship with public spaces of transience. The viewer either becomes the one observing a solitary figure or the one being isolated.
She received her MFA from Laguna College of Art and Design, Laguna Beach, and her BFA from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
