Session 3: 13 March 2023 - 17 June 2023
Remaining seats : 25/25

Acquire the fundamental bases of drawing through composition, line, proportions, volumes and modelled values. This is a practical and solid introduction to drawing.

This course focuses on observation, so that the student learns to situate a shape in the middle of others, to simplify it in order to be able to read it, to memorise it and finally to reproduce it by going from three to two dimensions. Corrections are made according to the level of each student, whether he or she is a beginner or already experienced. During the classes, the specificities of each technique freely chosen by the student are addressed, as well as questions of proportion, shortening, rendering of light and space, and also a contemporary artistic questioning by referring to works of today, as well as those of the past.

The poses are alternated in very different times. The long times allow for an analytical study of forms, a more elaborate work for a composition. With the short times, it is a more intuitive writing of the drawing that is solicited.

Courses are taught in French.  Material to be provided by the participant (list communicated at registration).

Break in classes during spring break from April 24 to May 08, 2023.
