Intro to Design
Learn To Draw In Just 8 Weeks!
Concept Cube’s Intro to Design is an 8 week course that covers the fundamentals of drawing and rendering, including: perspective, geometric shapes, organic shapes, textures, and composition. Everything is hands on, one-on-one or in a small group. Lessons and assignments are straight forward with a clear progression. While demanding, a student’s dedication and discipline are rewarded with steady improvement with results that are easy to see.
Weeks 1-2: Intro & Perspective
Learn about the tools and exercises you'll need to start before diving into the critical skill of perspective. Don't worry though, we make perspective easy!
Weeks 3-5: 3-D Shapes
Learn the four basic geometric shapes: cubes, cylinders, cones, and spheres. These are the four shapes that can help you draw anything! Later on, we move on to more organic shapes, known as "bio-forms" or "speed-forms".
Weeks 6-7: Rendering
Time to make things look more realistic by learning how to render textures and materials including: chrome, rubber, metals, stone, fur, etc.
We'll also learn how to "communicate" through our visuals using arrows and thumbnails.
Week 8: Basic Compositions
It's finally time to put everything we've learned and put them into a slick looking composition!
