Drawing Classes for all Ages and Levels
Learn to Draw Like the Old Masters
Mandy Boursicot Atelier is a private art studio in Vancouver BC, offering classes in drawing and painting, using the Classical Realist method. This Academic Method training is drawn from the 19th Century European Academies, whose progressive skill-building assignments help students of all ages and skill levels to attain excellence in drawing and painting.
How will you learn
Drawing and painting from the live model is also offered for both the figure and the portrait, with a focus on training the aspiring artist to creating professional quality portraits.
The drawing skills you taught me have been essential for my artistic development and I will always cherish that. Thank you !
Three Ways to Study with Mandy
Signature courses with assignments and video critiques allow you to learn and be guided from the comfort of your own home.
Based on the same sequential method of our atelier sessions, our online courses are delivered in segments, with each week focussing on one key building block.
Assignments are personally reviewed and critiqued by Mandy, giving all-essential feedback for the development of your skills
Open Studio where students choose their individual assignment or follow the Classical Program curriculum under Mandy’s direct supervision.
Student assignments may include requisites in the Certificate Program or a choice of drawing from photos, still life drawing and painting, or portfolio preparation for entry to a higher art education institution.
One to one lessons, personal critique and mentoring via Zoom with Mandy on your personal projects. Some students are painting live with Mandy in longer sessions, whilst others work on completing Bargues, or discuss more advanced refinements for their personal creative paintings and drawings.
Perspective for Artists
Learn 5 ways to represent depth on a 2-dimensional surface

$130 for 6-hour in-person workshop at the Atelier
With a special emphasis on linear perspective, this 6-hour workshop will break down this very complex subject into simple concepts and steps. The student will learn how to easily and convincingly depict subjects that recede into space. Starting with terminology and definitions of perspective, we will cover how, when and why to use each of these methods. Exercises with hands-on instructions mean that students will complete drawings in one- and two-point perspective, and will understand how to use perspective in their own work.
A simple supply list will be needed, most of which you probably already have at home. Some supplies will be provided.
Space is limited.
