Beyond the Line Art Classes

The Beyond the Line Series are art classes delivered online by Ian de Souza in the comfort of your own home. Each lesson in the series is presented in three to four videos that you can download to your device and refer back to at any time. 

"The aim of this series is to share with you the expertise and knowledge that I have acquired over the past forty years as a professional artist. Using simple and effective exercises you will be encouraged to see and think differently, to enjoy the creative process without fear of an end result and how to apply these basic principles to everyday life around you regardless of your creative expression"  IAN de SOUZA

Ian de Souza is an exhibiting artist and art educator with nearly 40 years experience. Born in West Malaysia, he was educated in Singapore before traveling to Australia to further his studies. Life drawing remains an essential element to a lively art practice and he believes that the creative spirit knows no bounds when the fear of the end result is overcome.

Drawing, or mark making is a basic form of human expression.
As Picasso said:  “Every child is an artist – how to remain an artist when they grow up, that is the problem”.

The release of creativity can have a positive impact on many areas of life and making art is less about replicating nature and more about responding to and interpreting it.

The skill of drawing is a wonderful tool for change. Awareness of boundaries. Perspective, balance and essence are marvellous metaphors for everyday life as is awareness of the strength of your light source.

If you would like your work critiqued by Ian after you have completed your course, please forward low res examples by email and he will endeavour to respond.
