Zomerweekend: Model drawing from a story

This weekend we will use a story as a guide for model drawing. We work both in terms of observation and imagination. With the story (prepared by the teacher) we give the model context. We look at how we can add different layers to the image and the meaning of this. Which colours, materials and shapes tell your story, but also in terms of content; What do I want to express and how do I do it? We look to the work of artists such as Picasso, Rembrandt and Watteau for inspiration.

The aim of this course is to look at model drawing differently, to improve the drawing skills and the expressiveness of your work. We work with dry materials such as pastel but also use water-based paint and ink. We will make a lot of sketches over the weekend and try different things. The last part of the weekend we work on a drawing/painting in which everything learned comes together.

Please note: This course will taught be in English.
