Learn how to create a realistic drawing of the human eye

In this course you will learn how to create a realistic drawing of the human eye, from the first guiding marks through to a high degree of detailed finish.

This class will enable you to understand and rely on your observations rather than your preconceived ideas of the human face and features.

Significant focus will be placed on how to use  tonal value to;

  • communicate volume,
  • create visual impact, and
  • establish and refine the form throughout the process.

The techniques and insights covered in this class will assist you in your broader drawing practice, providing guidance that will apply to any subject.

How Does an Online Art Class Work?

An online art class at Sydney Art School is taught live by your tutor.

We use a web-conferencing system so you can see your tutor and other students in real-time.  This is to make the experience as close as possible to being in the class in one of our studio locations.

Your tutor will demonstrate step by step the key elements of the class which you will then practice.

At the end of each step you will be able to show your work back to the tutor and then get feedback on what you did well and what could be improved.

At the end of the lesson you will receive a written guide to remind you of the key points and how to apply what you have learned.
