Classical Graphite

During the first part of this course you will learn how to scale and create proportions,  combine shadows,develop a “artistic eye”, learn to work at an easel, understanding how to use the different pencils, mouldable eraser and how to work on paper. During the course, there will be small workshops within class time, where we practice “speed drawing”, freehand drawing and perspective drawing.

White pastels on black paper

First step in the pastel-art world. Learning to work with light instead of shadows. Working with grey pastels in different shades building on top of the shadow techniques learned from pencil.

Color pastels on coloured paper

Drawing style that is similar to oil-painting. Working with layers, understanding colours and how to combine them. Also learning how to work with coloured paper and incorporating its vaule in to expression of the drawing. Big focus on developing a unique drawing style, and adding elements drawn in freehand.
