This workshop proposes, in a dynamic way, to apprehend the various stages and processes of the realization of the sketch.
Sketches are done quickly by hand, they are notes without details, sketches necessary to bring out the essential: an attitude, a movement, an emotion, a place, an action. Sketches made from live models (actor, dancer, mime) allow us to represent the body but also the decomposition of the movement. This approach makes us aware of the different nuances of perception: seeing, looking, observing.
Exercises complete the training, the memory and the dexterity of the gaze, and thus allow us to explore a multitude of techniques with great freedom. Capturing the fugitive in sketches requires moving around the school: the Chapel, the main amphitheatre, the drawing room, the garden and other prestigious places outside…

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.
