Learn how to draw figuratively with a live model in our workshops

In our life drawing workshops you will systematically learn how to depict a real-life model on paper. Many participants are surprised how quickly you can acquire this skill and how enjoyable it is. Of course, we work with professional models, who can hold the same pose for long periods of time. Our instructors are always present to answer questions and provide guidance.

What will I learn?
This workshop will teach you how to draw figures using a real-life model. You will learn the basics in a step-by-step process. Each day is divided into two sections: three hours of theoretical and practical instruction and three hours of life drawing. Our instructors will teach you how to use the sight-size method, in order to create a proportionally-correct drawing of a human. After mastering this technique, you move on to working with terminator lines. Through this process you will create a realistic depiction of the model. Finally, to create a three-dimensional effect, you also learn to work with shading and nuances.

What will I need?
First of all: curiosity and a good attitude. You will receive a list of materials via email after you register (the cost for these will be between 30 to 50 Euros, depending on whether you already own any materials. If you are starting from scratch, the cost could range from 50 to 100 Euros). You can also purchase all of the required materials from us, if that is more convenient for you.

What will I learn?
This workshop, like the other two, will teach you how to draw figures using a real-life model. During the first week, you will be instructed in the basics of life drawing, such as the sight-size method, proportions, shapes, light and shadow. In the second week, you will learn how to use oil paints for creating a painting of the live model. For this purpose, we cover the proper handling of oil paint and materials, which includes the mixing and application of the colors. During the two weeks, you will mainly be working with one model, which means that during the first week you are already laying the foundation for your painting.
