In this workshop you will learn to see and draw. The „Course de Dessin“ of Charles Bargue forms the basis of this program. We will begin with the fundamental techniques for realistic rendering of proportions, forms, tonality, light and shadow.
You will learn figure painting in a professional, optimal atmosphere, taught in a traditional manner. Drawing exercises and sketches of the pose will be included alongside a longer carried painting of the human figure.
In this workshop, you will learn basic color theory, additional material teachings and how to capture expression, pose, clothing, composition and perhaps even mood of the sitter in your painting.
The most important thing for us is your passion for art and your artistic abilities. We follow our slogan “Realistic painting and drawing is a craft, that everyone can learn!”.
