About The Courses
Drawing courses focus on building fundamental drawing skills as well as creatively self-expression. The course is developed into three levels.
Level 3: Students learn more about expressive rendering skills, composition, and other advanced concepts. Students explore more complex subjects such as figure drawing, portrait, and landscape. Another portion of this course is aimed at enhancing students’ creative and expressive abilities by encouraging them to experiment different drawing skills and explore the themes.
