Certificate in Drawing


Drawing is a skill that involves the linear rendition/transfer of an image on a surface; various mediums may be employed and the process can involve the pictorial representation of anything from concepts and emotions to ideas.

The earliest linear drawings and sketches known in the history of art were in the form of cave drawings. However the dot and line in Art History have been instrumental in creating unparalleled works of art; it is also the most concise and economical means of expressing an idea in its most direct form.

In order to achieve an expression that is the most accurate of firsthand observations and that captures the essence of an idea, a certain coordination between the mind and eye is necessary for drawing is the most unique, spontaneous and unencumbered method of bringing an idea to fruition and presents the artist with infinite artistic possibilities.

Drawing is the backbone of all artistic training and artists who have persevered in the quest for attaining mastery of this visual form have produced timeless works of art; it is to the drawings of such masters that art students have turned in order to gain a better understanding of the technical prowess and skill involved in creating work that has withstood the test of time.
