🔎 Virtual Class Details

Have you always wanted the ability to draw things so realistically they look like a photograph? In this weekly online art class, students will work in various dry media to draw realistic people, animals, objects and landscapes using shading and perspective. Learn how to draw and render like a master illusionist from professional artists in small online classes with personalised guidance on your artwork!

This live online art class offers you a way to dive into realistic drawing and build on your existing techniques. It’s a fun and convenient way to learn to draw from your home with our virtual program. Follow step-by-step demos and have fun with personalised projects. This class is designed for teens and adults of any age with some previous experience with drawing!

🤓 What to Expect in Class

Most drawings incorporate design, illustration or storytelling with room for personalization. Drawing assignments are usually completed in 1-2 classes, although more complex projects may take longer.

Students are encouraged to share their progress during class for personalised feedback, or submit to Google Classroom for written feedback from their instructor if they need additional time to finish their artwork after the live class.

Realistic Drawing is a live online art class that is weekly and ongoing throughout the year. Consistent practice is key to growth and  improvement, so most of our students enrol for a full term and continue learning with us for years. Our projects rarely repeat (we only revamp past favourites), so you can start anytime!

📚 Curriculum / Learning Goals

Realistic Drawing is designed to complement Canadian school curriculum guidelines for grades 7+, but it’s a great online art enrichment program for experienced artists of all ages!
