What will I learn?
The instructors of the Academy of Fine Art Germany will teach you the important basics of drawing. This ranges from getting to know the materials we work with, to a technique called ‘sight-size’, which all our students learn. It is a method of transferring the correct proportions, and you will notice how much more enjoyable drawing becomes once you have mastered it. Furthermore, you will be taught how to create a 3-dimensional effect in drawing. For this purpose we will instruct you in the ‘right way of seeing’, which is also connected to effectively using light and shadow in your drawing.

Date
Foundation oil painting:12.12. – 16.12.2022

What will I learn?
Oil painting is a complex subject. Therefore, we start in this workshop with the basics. For this you will first get to know the material properly. This includes the correct handling, washing the brushes, applying layers but also the painting grounds that you can use. After the introduction to the materials, you will begin with the first exercises to warm up for your first small still life. You will soon realize how much fun oil painting is and the beautiful color results. The best part is that oil paints have proven themselves over hundreds of years in terms of quality and longevity. Further topics in this workshop are composition, perspective and proportions.

First of all: curiosity and a good attitude. You will receive a list of materials via email after you register (If you don’t own any materials, the purchase cost can be quite high. If you think this is too much at the beginning, you can also use materials from the Academy for a fee and then decide if you want to buy them or not. The cost is therefore about 40 – 250 €, depending on what materials you already have).

Date
Still-life Painting:12.12. – 16.12.2022

What will I learn?

In the workshop we start with the composition of the picture. For this, you bring personal objects that you would like to immortalize in your painting and put them together into an attractive composition. You have the choice whether fruits, flowers and / or objects from your everyday life. We start with a preliminary drawing, which is then transferred to the canvas. Then it goes step by step from the underpainting to the final layers of color. During the process you will learn about paint application, use of brushes and mixing of colors. In the end you will be able to take home a beautiful painting.

What will I need to bring?
First of all: curiosity and a good attitude. You will receive a list of materials via email after you register. (As you are an advanced painter and already own some of the materials, the costs will be between 20 – 100 €, depending on whether you need other colors or brushes).
