CIF Project Summary

Portraits & Perspectives

Registration is currently full

This 11-week course runs in a 2-module structure. Learn techniques to draw:

  • Portraits – including the nose, mouth, eyes and ears
  • Perspectives – including one-point and two-point perspectives

Art classes are taught by Mike, a peer and recent graduate with a BFA from Emily Carr University. Lessons start from simple and easy to do exercises, then build on those skills, and eventually reach some advanced ways to accomplish art.

One of Mike’s motto’s is that in every class we are here to have fun, and if we learn something new then that is a bonus. Having fun is the most important part of learning.
