In this 8-week course, instructor Iliya Mirochnik will share with you his knowledge of the Russian Drawing Approach; a technique that has remained nearly unaltered in Russia for over 250 years. It is an excellent tool for learning the fundamentals of observation, construction, and light theory. With the help of Iliya’s intuitive assignments, 3D models, and reference images, this course will give you a strong drawing foundation. The skills you gain from this course will benefit you through your artistic career.

Week 1: Materials, Making Marks, & Measuring
In week one, Iliya will go over everything you need to start an observational drawing, from materials and setup to mark-making and measuring.

Week 2: The Fundamental Forms of Drawing
In week two, Iliya will teach you the fundamentals of drawing form, using simple geometric shapes. You will learn how to describe three-dimensional volume and construct forms from observation.

Week 3: The Fundamentals of Light & Shadow I
In week three, you will learn the essential elements of light and shadow. Iliya will teach you how to describe planed and curved surfaces on cylindrical objects.

Week 4: The Fundamentals of Light & Shadow II
In week four, Iliya will teach you how to apply the principles of light and shadow to a spherical object. He will discuss the effective ways to render a terminator line.

Week 5: Geometric Still Life Project I
In week five, Iliya will teach you how to construct a geometric still life from observation. You will draw a three-dimensional illusion of form using your skills in construction, measuring, and developing values.

Week 6: Geometric Still Life Project II
In week six, Iliya will demonstrate how to add half-tones and highlights to a still life drawing as the final touches. At the end of the lesson, he will show you how to stretch paper in preparation for next week’s project.

Week 7: Planes of the Head I
In week seven, Iliya will demonstrate how to draw planes of the head using John Asaro’s sculpture as the reference. You will focus on constructing its structure and applying shadows to each form.

Week 8: Planes of the Head II
In week eight, Iliya will take last week’s drawing to completion. He will show you how to add half-tones and highlights to amplify your shadow masses.
