Integrated Drawing is an experiential course that is designed to help students of all skill levels learn to draw. Students learn the basics of perspective, shading, proportion, color, and compositional balance. The majority of this course is built around exercises in Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.
Comparing our “Integrated Drawing” and “Drawing & Design” Courses
Oak Meadow offers two art courses that are suitable for students looking to begin formal art instruction.
- Integrated Drawing is ideal for students who are new to art. It assumes no prior drawing skills and leads students step by step in a way that is approachable to the new artist.
- Our Drawing and Design course is designed for students who are already practicing art and are looking to develop their skills. This course involves more composition and “seeing like an artist” exercises.
Students are welcome to take both our Integrated Drawing and Drawing and Design courses, though it is not necessary. In terms of course progression, we would recommend starting with Integrated Drawing and following it with Drawing and Design. While there is some overlap between these courses, taking both offers students the opportunity to develop and hone their artistic talents.
