THE FUNDAMENTALS OF DRAWING

From human anatomy to perspective

OUR COURSE IN THE FUNDAMENTALS OF DRAWING IS AN INTRODUCTION TO BASIC SKETCHING TECHNIQUES – IT IS A PREPARATORY PROGRAMME FOR THE MASTER IN CONCEPT ART.

Rainbow Academy offers a new course in the Fundamentals of Drawing – as a result of the productive and creative experience of our Artists and Professionals.

This introductory course in drawing is for all the people who have a passion for illustration and comics and who are willing to learn the basic techniques of drawing, both traditional and digital, through the study of fundamental topics such as: anatomy and perspective.

Our course in the Fundamentals of Drawing wants to provide students with the competences they need to manage a visual project. The didactic programme supplies the necessary tools for understanding drawing techniques and enhancing individual artistic skills, while testing the ability to represent the perceived reality.

By way of constant and stepwise practice, teachers make students acquire the manual and technical skills that increase their drawing fluency and that can help them fully express their artistic vision.

By following this course, students learn what it means to work in this field and get ready to face the next steps of professional specialisation, such as the Masters in Concept Art and 2D Animation.
