Fine Art Programmes
In Drawing, Watercolour and Acrylics
Divided into 2 components. First the Beginner Drawing in pencils and charcoal and secondly the painting component made up of a watercolour workshop followed by an acrylics workshop is aimed to supply the student with a comprehensive worldview of representational art together with training the student in various methods and techniques resulting in a versatile art portfolio.
This lays most of the ground work for the more advanced Classical Realism programme in Realist Drawing and Oil painting.
Intensive Realist Drawing and Oil Painting course
Entry: Intermediate Level
During this intensive Realist Drawing programme our main focus will be divided in understanding accurate measurements and specificity through simplification.
Students will be first taught how to approach drawing from life with the simplest of media: pencil. This is to ensure they can grasp concepts surrounding proportion, gesture, form, shadow shapes and line quality without the added hassle of technical issues pertaining to more difficult media.
Through abstraction and simplification students will be taught how to translate three dimensional form onto a two dimensional surface.
Specialization: Human Anatomy
Entry: Intermediate/ Advanced level
Masterclass I: The Golden Proportions
Since ancient times, the Golden Ratio has intrigued many of the greatest mathematicians, artists, architects and even musicians. A proportion which has been merited the title of ‘the divine ratio’ in search for perfection in art and nature.
We not only find it on the petals of roses or in the perfect smile of the Mona Lisa, but it is also evident in the design of ancient structures dating as back as the Pyramids. It is also perfectly implemented in Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and Mozart’s compositions.
Masterclass II: Big Scale Anatomy
This workshop explores the style and substance of figure drawing viewed through the prism of human anatomy designed upon the idea that precise anatomical observation and perfect drawing of the human body is possible only through the big scale drawing.
