Charles Bargue (1826/27-1883), a lithographer and painter.

The ground technique of drawing is the line drawing. The course starts with specially prepared sketches which give effective information and teach about form, proportion and tonal rendering.

This programme consists of gradual series of special exercises. Every project is built on knowledge acquired in previous lesson. The course design is based on techniques and methods, which were developed in french ateliers of the 19th century and later on refined. It is the fastest possible way of learning how to draw on high levels.

 

The goal of  the course is to develop abilities of the participants through traditional education and exercising. With it, the same methods are used with which famous masters of the past were taught. At the same time the individual strength and artistic interpretation of each participant are encouraged.

 

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSICAL  AND MODERN DRAWING

 

Modern drawing classes neglect the organic structure and unity of the model. Students in drawing classes are allowed to draw approximate sections of bodies and to accept multiple test lines and accidents without correcting or erasing them.

A persistent modern view holds that there are no mistakes in a work of art. The only criterion is the artist’s intention.

 

By contrast, a good academic drawing — today as in the 19 century — should be accurate and finished, concerned with organic unity, and devoid of superfluous details. Careful academic practices not only develop patience but also train the students to see mistakes and correct them.

The human figure is viewed and painted with respect!

 

Due to the individual approach of the course, it is possible to join in at any given point.

You can visit the Studio by arrangement.
