  • Structure and content

    Spend a weekend focusing on fast life drawing and sketching.

    In this course we will focus on fast life drawing as well as sketching in order to practice the dynamics, movement and flow of the drawing. However, there will also be drawing exercises without a model. The approach is inspired by classical drawing, where knowledge about anatomy and form is fundamental. There will also be longer studies with the possibility to go into depth with anatomy etc.

    The teacher will give individual feedback according each students’ skills.
