Drawing I.


Short description of the course:

Our Drawing I. course will last for 4 weeks and will take place on weekday evenings from 19:00 to 21:30.
This course aims to teach students a different way to see the world through drawing.

Drawing less to do with skillful hands and more with how one perceives the world, as well as how much one dedicates oneself to its practice. This course will provide a solid foundation of basic drawing skills that can be further developed. Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to unlock your inner artist and discover a new way of seeing the world. Sign up now and take the first step on your drawing journey.


What to expect:

  • Throughout the course, students will experiment with different drawing materials such as pens, pencils, charcoal, pastel, and sanguine.
  • Each class will begin with a clear explanation and demonstration of the session's subject by the art teacher, followed by drawing exercises.
  • Students will draw from both photo references and still life.


What is included:

  • All materials such as paper, drawing tools, boards, etc. are included. Students do not need to bring anything except a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.


What you will learn:

  • Practical fundamentals, such as correct drawing posture and pencil holding grip, which drawing tools to use for each drawing assignment, how to sharpen your pencil with a blade among other useful drawing and material handling tips.
  • How to think and draw in three dimensions.
  • The laws of light and how to use shading when drawing objects and surfaces.
  • The concept of value and how to use it in drawings.


Is this course right for me?

This course is designed for beginners with no previous experience or knowledge in drawing. Those with some experience can also benefit from the course as it can help to organize existing knowledge and develop effective working processes. For more experienced students, we recommend attending the second module of this course and joining one of our study groups.


Some important things to keep in mind:

  • We encourage all students to arrive 15 minutes before the start of class. This will allow us to start on time and will give you the opportunity to socialize with other students and share drawing tips, discuss at-home practice, and provide help or receive help from others. This will help everyone improve their skills and achieve better results.
  • We will be happy to store your artwork throughout the course. On the last class we nicely package it so you can take it home and have guiding references while practicing your newly acquired skills.
  • This course has a second module for students who have completed this first one which aims to further the acquired knowledge and teach new techniques. The second module takes place immediately after this module ends.
  • You may want to consider purchasing both modules as a package to receive a 10% discount on your purchase.
  • This course will provide you with the basic knowledge and skills needed for drawing, but it is important to practice regularly to fully incorporate this knowledge. Our study groups offer the opportunity to continue practicing in a community of like-minded individuals up to two days a week (Mondays and Wednesdays, from 19.00 to 21.30).
