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

In your starting lessons we will hold on to short (unfinished) excercises because of this the learning curve will be more steep.
Afterwards longer, the more complex, studies are introduced.

This Monday evening and Friday morning
Considering your practical art experiences the attention will be put on the oilpainting (or other materials) and the colour blue.

Painting onions, an excercise in flesh colours
Theme: painting and drawing transparancy and the colour blue

Theme: transparancy in the object, introduction of the color blue

This Wednesday afternoon
The Allard Pierson Museum has a nice collection of antique casts on the attic not available for the public but now and then available for student artists. We will do some sketching as important underlying skill for shape and proportion, starting in the museum and the second half on the attic. Don't forget your 'museumjaarkaart' because it will give you free entrance to the museum otherwise you have to buy an entrance ticket. If you don't have a 'museumjaarkaart' consider buying one (annual fee 35-40 euro) because it gives you free entrance to almost all important museums in the Netherlands. Availabel at the cash desk of the Museum.

Training your sketching skills in the Museum of Classical Antiquity: Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam

Theme: sketching casts in the Allard Pierson Museum.

Please consider that during portrait and model classes it is possible to work on your traditional or experimental subject, ofcourse without the contribution for the model. Several atelier spaces can be used during the same time period.

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.

Geschilderde voorbeelden met als inspiratiebron Andy Warhol. Acrylverf op doek.

Start your private Andy Warhol 'factory' project.

Experimentele opzet landschap met als thematiek het uitbeelden van ruimte.

Choose your own theme, bring your own painting or leave the subject and motive to the teacher.

Please consider that during portrait and model classes it is possible to work on your traditional or experimental subject, ofcourse without the contribution for the model. Several atelier spaces can be used during the same time period.

Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, Titus at reading/ writing desk, 1655, oliepaint on canvas, 77x 63cm, Boymans van Beuningen, Rotterdam.

Considering portraiture, conventions changed during the third quarter of the 15th. century. The way sitters, patrons are portraited is changing from profile towards third quarter positions in combination with hand gesture. The portrait is likely to become a message or story. The focus of this lesson will be head/ portraiture and gesture.

Some short excersises are followed by longer study.

Lessons in 'natural & experimental'
life drawing/ painting by Ruben Schwartz.

Drawing and watching are connected. Even without any art ambitions it can give a lot of pleasure to learn to watch better. We are actualy quiet blind for the surrounding world. Our perception of things stands in the way of our observation. Learning to observe better, for example by drawing, triggers more in a human being than just producing a drawing.
Different methods of learning to watch or draw exist ; More exact methods where you learn about proportions, structures, perspective, tone, color etc with mainly a cognitive approach. Apart from that there are more free methods where you learn to see yourself as the main instrument. Actualy these are about loosing habits rather than acquiring knowledge. This is the way Iíll try to teach. Try, because in the end you are the one who has to find the freedom to develop a personal style. I will give directions, but practicing, working, will be the most important.
We will work with life figures/ models.

 

Saturday morning November 14th. Rijksmuseum visit, guided tour. We meet 9.50h in the entrance near the fence and start to queue. The tour will be from 10.00 - 12.00

Altough the tour will be free of charge for lesson participants be aware of the entrance fee of the Museum. It is advisable to buy a 'museumjaarkaart' which gives you free entrance to almost all important museums in the Netherlands, yearly costs about 35-40 euro. Available at the cash desk of the Museum.

One of the important aspects of learning to draw or paint is to look how the 'great masters' proceeded. We will analyse different techniques and aspects of art making: Composition, Light-Dark, Space-Depth, Brushstrokes etcetera combined with a little bit of Dutch history in the Golden Age.
