Artistic Drawing


The artistic drawing course is aimed both at those who want to approach drawing for the first time and at those who already have basic skills and wish to acquire new techniques and greater familiarity in translating reality onto paper.

Participants are guided by the lecturer along a pathway that allows them to learn the basics of freehand drawing, and then go on to explore the more complex aspects, through gradual individual activities, with an exit for exercises in drawing from life of people, nature and monuments.

In particular, the course enables students to learn to: recognise basic geometry in drawing, observe and reproduce different shapes, manage the space on the white sheet, reproduce proportions, understand more complex shapes, give volume to the subject through the use of chiaroscuro and halftone, familiarise themselves with the basics of perspective, reproduce the human figure from draft to realistic drawing.
