Sketching Interior Spaces Part 2 (short course)

Why study this course?

This course builds upon the skills and techniques covered in the Sketching Interior Spaces Part 1 short course. If you have completed Part 1 or already have those skills yourself, then this short course is designed to help you continue developing your drawing skills in sketchbook format in response to live spaces.

Open all

This course aims to introduce you to more specialist techniques such as working with two-point perspective and more complex viewpoints, as well as developing a further understanding of the effective use of key drawing media. This includes aspects such as describing figures and movement, textures, light and shadows when observing and responding to interior environments.

You'll learn about the principles of two-point perspective and how to apply and explore its rules when sketching on location. Each week we'll visit some of London’s most exciting and prestigious museums and cultural spaces from which to record your observations and build confidence in developing your drawing skills.

The techniques taught will help you:

  • develop two-point perspective techniques
  • draw figures and capture movement
  • learn about mark-making and texture/materiality
  • work creatively with colour to describe light, tone and value

By the end of the course you'll have a solid foundation and understanding of the principles of two-point perspective and how to apply it effectively when responding to live interiors and environments.

This course is taught by John Cash.

This course is suitable for those who have completed the Sketching Interior Spaces Part 1 short course and understand the basic principles of perspective and how to work with key drawing media, but who now wish to develop and refine their skills further.

For those who have not attended Part 1, basic knowledge of the principles and application of one-point perspective and some prior drawing skills and ability across basic media outlined in Part 1 would be needed before attending this course.

"Excellent course and John was a great, patient tutor."
