A quick review of the five perceptual skills of drawing

In this lesson, we are working on the perception of edges as one of the component skills of drawing. Recall that there are four others and together these five components make up the whole skill of drawing:

1. The perception of edges (the "shared" edges of contour drawing).

2. The perception of spaces (in drawing called negative spaces).

3. The perception of relationships (known as perspective and proportion).

4. The perception of lights and shadows (often called "shading").

5. The perception of the whole (the gestalt, the "thingness" of the thing).
