Course Details

This course will enable students in detail the various permutation and combinations of using lines, dots or shapes to create different effects in a drawing, for e.g the gap between multiple lines drawn parallelly provides for a light or dense effect. Lines apart will bring out a lighter effect whereas lines drawn closely will be visually dense. The same applies in relation to the thickness of the line. The course will dwell on some of the known line techniques that help to change the visual aesthetics of a drawing. Line techniques such as small dashes used to fill empty spaces, hatching concerning long parallel lines on an angle, cross hatching technique of drawing long parallel lines at right angles, stippling relating to the use of dots, scribbling, small crosses and small circles will be part of this course.

The ipassio Edge

Students enrolling for this long term course on ipassio can be sure that they receive individual attention from the teacher, as the class strength is limited to 1 student. It also gives teachers the opportunity, to gauge their students progress in depth and make changes whenever and wherever required, to ensure the student gets the maximum out of this course. Since, long term courses are detailed, students get the advantage of learning intricate details about this art form. The limited strength of the class also ensures that there is a strong bond between the students and their teacher clearing out any inhibitions that the student might have. The sustained guidance available from the teacher ensures that the student does not deviate from set goals or targets. Learning from a revered, experienced exponent of this art form, through the long duration of this course, keeps the student inspired and motivated to achieve more.

Course Specific Benefits

Students interested in drawing and painting as an artform can gain immensely by learning the techniques of shading as it would improve their understanding about using varied tones, textures and patterns in their drawing or paintings.

How will this course help the student?
In this course, while we will learn some techniques which can be used for shading, we will also get to explore and develop our own techniques and skills for newer ways of shading.
What if the student is unable to attend an upcoming class?
The student is required to inform the teacher about his absence from a particular session, two days prior to the class. In such a case, the teacher will reschedule the class and conduct the rescheduled class on or before the end (i.e. Saturday) of the ensuing week or such other time as may be mutually decided between the teacher and the student. In case the student misses to give two days prior notice about his absence to the teacher, then the decision to conduct another class for that student is completely based on teacher’s discretion.
What if the teacher wishes to reschedule a class?
In case the teacher is unavailable for the scheduled class, he/she will inform the students two days prior to the class. The teacher will conduct the rescheduled class on or before the end (i.e. Saturday) of the ensuing week or such other time as may be mutually decided between the teacher and the student.
