Unorthodox approaches to drawing

when 8 August 2016 - 13 August 2016
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 450

This course is open to anyone keen on drawing. The programme is designed to accommodate a range of needs, so that artists who are new to, or uncomfortable with the medium can easily work with those who are more skilled. This class mixes unorthodox and conventional drawing techniques with an aim of both improving drawing skills and developing experimental approaches to drawing and representation.

Each day will begin with a series of repetitive rapid sketching exercises, after which students will undertake a series of intensive activities designed to improve basic skills and simultaneously create new understanding of how drawing can be used to communicate meaning. The resultant works and processes will be discussed individually and in groups.

The preferred medium for this class is ink and brushes, as they allow for speed and fluidity of movement. However, students may feel free to work using other preferred drawing materials such as pencils, charcoal etc.
