Copying. A lot of art classes make you copy art, in this class you will be taught how to see things in order to "digest" them into unique art. If you learn that skill, you can do any modern kind of art, photography, design etc
Structure of each art class:
Class is 3 hours (180 min) long
Introduction - 30 min
Participants briefly introduce themselves and describe what they would like to learn in the class. Teacher explains one topic or challenge for the class. For example how to compose objects, how to find format, how to choose material etc.
Life drawing - 2 hours with small break
Each participants can choose between drawing the life model (one long pose per class) or drawing still life objects, depending on their level and interest. At any time they can ask the teacher a question or share their progress.
Questions and feedback - 30 min
Participants exhibit works they created during the class and the homework they brought. They discuss it and ask questions. Teacher gives them feedback and new homework.
What is special about us:
Same class is open to people of all levels and more close to several individual classes combined in the same time and space. People can even choose between drawing still life objects or model.
Strict body positive and zero tolerance to any discrimination.
Diverse life models
People of different gender expression, size, nationalities as models.
Freedom of choice of materials
Classical drawing encourage use of easels and we provide them, but we are welcoming people using all technics and materials, including digital (pads and stilus) + collages.
Academical drawing doesn't mean strict and tense. The teachers don't take themselves too serious and are always open to feedback. Grab a drink and a snack.
1 pose per class. If you want to do shorter sketches - feel free to move around the room.
Each participant is provided with individual non-mandatory homework assignments that we discuss in the next class.
