Acquire the fundamental bases of drawing through composition, line, proportions, volumes and modelled values. This is a solid, practical introduction to drawing.
This course focuses on observation, so that students learn to situate a shape among others, to simplify it so that they can read it, memorise it and finally reproduce it by moving from three to two dimensions. Corrections are made according to each student’s level, from beginner to advanced. During the classes, the specific features of each technique freely chosen by the student are addressed, along with questions of proportion, foreshortening, the rendering of light and space, as well as contemporary artistic issues, with reference to works of today as well as those of the past.
The poses are alternated at very different times. The long exposures allow for an analytical study of the forms and more elaborate compositional work. The shorter periods encourage a more intuitive approach to drawing.
You will need to bring your own materials (a list will be sent to you when you register).
