In the traditional lessons aspects like e.g. proportion, light-dark logic (chiaroscuro), sketching and painting techniques will be the subject. Short and longer excercises in different techniques and materials will give you a better understanding of traditional image making wich functions as a valuable basic also in the more modernistic, avant garde and conceptual art treatment


Traditional set up of cast in chairoscuro.


Friday October 23rd. 13.00 - 16.00
Saturday October 24th. 10.00 - 13.00
experimental drawing and painting.

Next to the traditional lessons classes are given with the focus on the experiment. Drawing and painting is more or less making combinations of signs on a surface wich can tell a personal story or concept. Putting yourself into learning boundaries of image making aspects as a goal for learning and understanding these aspects is a way of collecting tools in your image making toolbox.

Also suitable for those who just want to have an exchange about their own ideas of making art with the teacher in the role of sound board.

Composition with hands.

Friday October 23 rd. portraiture and figure drawing / painting (life drawing & life painting)
theme: foreshortening
19.00 - 22.00

Drawing and painting after the human body can be fun and exciting. How to capture the characteristics of a face or pose can be a challenge.

These sessions are ment to explore and extend your bounds of possibilities working either in a traditional or experimental way.

Formal image aspects used for analysing and describing a drawing or painting are used in a reversed way. Putting yourself into certain boundaries of techniques and materials is a proved way of collecting knowledge of these particular techniques and materials.

Those who like to work more in their own method and materials are certainly very welcome to join these sessions. The interchange with other participants is one of the most valuable aspects of these sessions.

The theme of next week will be 'foreshortening' as one of the most interesting ways of creating a depth of field. We will find a pose for the model where the outcome will be more or less like Mantegna's painting of The Dead Christ.

Cristo Scorto, The Dead Christ, Andrea Mantegna, Tempera on canvas, 68x81cm, 1490, Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan.

The Dead Christ, painted by Andrea Mantegna, tempera on canvas, in 1490 shows the creation of depth
using foreshortening.
As a viewer we look at the body as if we were looking into a landscape of overlapping hills and mountains.
