The workshop invites students to take an artistic journey, another time to learn, to perfect their skills and to explore the representation of the living model by using the senses to good effect:
Vision: stimulating the eye to memorise and observe form, structure, distance, light intensity, colour, black and white.
Touch: hold a pencil with varying degrees of pressure to explore the full range of greys, use the right amount of touch to apply and diffuse charcoal by brushing against the paper.
Balance: understanding body movements and orientation in space, speed and gravity.
During this course, you will meet the living model, that other person who, through his or her personality and posture, enables each of you to grasp the space of a quick sketch to capture the essential, but also a fleeting movement at the turn of a dance or a longer pose for a large format.
You will need to bring your own equipment (a list will be sent to you when you register).
