Artistic Drawing

All art drawing condensed into a short and comprehensive course


The intensive art drawing course is designed to meet the needs of those approaching drawing for the first time, but also for those who want to acquire new techniques and greater familiarity by working on existing bases.

Translating reality on paper will be possible thanks to a guided path through the basics of freehand drawing, and then going into more complex aspects through gradual individual activities, with an exit to do life drawing exercises.
Among the notions covered: recognising basic geometry in drawing, observing and reproducing different shapes, managing the space of the white sheet, reproducing proportions, understanding more complex shapes, giving volume to the subject through chiaroscuro and mezzotint, familiarising with the basics of perspective, reproducing the human figure from the draft to realistic drawing.

At the end of the course, a certificate of attendance will be issued, based on attendance at at least 12 of the 15 lectures, for a possible recognition of 2 ECTS.
