Visual Foundations: Space

Lecture no. 11 from the course: Visual Literacy Skills: How to See

Visual Foundations: Space

Taught by Professor Carrie Patterson | 21 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses

Study how artists and designers create the illusion of space in two dimensions. Begin with shallow space, a compositional approach which stresses the two-dimensional aspect of an artwork. See how artists indicate space and depth through the placement of objects and measuring of proportions within the picture plane. Learn about atmospheric perspective, linear perspective, and projection.
