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.
Watercolour & Acrylic painting
Discover the classical masters’ sophisticated approach to life-like Realism during an intensive introduction into academic art in the tradition of L’Académie des beaux-arts and modern schools of realism.
During this intensive Classical Realism programme the student’s main focus will be devoted first towards Intensive Drawing followed by the Classical Painting course.
Specialization: Human Anatomy
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.
Masterclass III: Portrait Painting from Life
This MasterClass in Portraiture focuses on the two most important traditions in classical painting–Disegno and Colore. Firstly Portrait anatomy and structure are studied from various points of view- the essence of facial expressions and emotion. Secondly the study of colour. light and painting technique will follow.
Students who follow this class must alreday have good solid drawing and painting skills in Classical Painting.
