  • Structure and content

    The course is a cooperation between The Drawing Academy at The Animation Workshop/VIA UC and Sörängens Folkhögskola in Sweden, where the course will physically take place. The course will be taught by a teacher from The Drawing Academy to ensure the high quality.

    You will be drawing all day, practicing various aspects of classical drawing like movement, anatomy and proportions. The teaching consists of a variety of exercises spanning from fast, dynamic drawings to more in-depth model studies with the opportunity for immersion. Additionally, there will be a number of drawing exercises without the use of a live model, which can include both sketching and longer studies. The teacher offers individual feedback based on each person’s skill level so both beginners and highly skilled artists are welcome. The course is primarily for young people who enjoy drawing. For some, this course can be a sneak peek into the semester course TDA Classical at The Animation Workshop, which is often used as foundation for further studies in animation, illustration, comics, computer games and similar.

    Simultaneously with the classical drawing course, there will be other art related summer courses taking place at Sörängens Folkhögskola such as creative writing, photography, and sculpture.
