This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Learn the principles of perspective by drawing depictions of three dimensions so believable that you will feel you can step into your own picture. Whether you draw or paint a still life or landscape or render architectural forms, a deeper understanding of one, two, and three-point perspective can take the guesswork out of the creative process.

Perspective is also helpful when creating works of the human figure. By establishing a horizon line and vanishing point or points, figures and faces can be foreshortened without the chance processes of trial and error. This four-session class will provide brief demonstrations followed by individualized instruction as you draw a series of projects that will help you develop the skills to turn two dimensions into three.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
