Whether you’re interested in becoming an architect or simply want to learn how to draw, a course in drawing will help you realize either potential. This knowledge can enhance any career by offering practical experience in a useful art medium.

What is a course in drawing? From basic, entry-level classes such as fundamentals of drawing to more specialized topics such as figure and fashion drawing, courses are varied and encompass a myriad of subject matters. A specific focus on mechanical or architectural drawing is available for aspiring mechanical engineers, as is a focus on drafting for future architects. On the other end of the spectrum, there are also classes on cartoon drawing available for those pursuing that particular path.

Individuals who take courses in drawing run the gamut from aspiring artists to architects and engineers to hobbyists. Regardless, the benefits are universal and include a greater understanding and appreciation of the art form and practical experience in doing it.

Costs vary in terms of the location of the institution, materials required and other factors. It is important to check with an individual school about the financial specifics of a certain program.

Individuals who take courses in drawing are simply better prepared for their careers and respective fields of study. Architects and engineers, in particular, gain practical experience in a medium that is regularly used in their industry. In fact, these careers require this type of knowledge. An individual with more experience in drafting will find that he or she will have more opportunity advancements in his or her career.

There are many exciting international options available with drawing, some of which may involve visiting and sketching iconic sculptures in places like Italy. While online options are less popular for these courses given the interactive and hands-on nature of the medium, they are increasingly being offered around the world. To get started, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
