The course aims at teaching how to create a realistic portrait, or build on the students existing skills through practicing on drawing the human face, using photographs and live models. Students will work through a variety of exercises to develop precise techniques and a personal style, with a special emphasis on form and color, observing proportions, rendering color and shadow, and making quick sketches that convey a range of emotions. In its second phase the course aims to dive into different aspects of the realm of painting, by reflecting upon the methods used to represent subjects, and by experimenting with several techniques. Through the exploration of different styles and the use of several materials, students will acquire the knowledge needed not solely to learn about the realm of painting, but also to develop their own unique style.
This course is intended for students with some background in that specific subject area and for students attending or having completed one or two years of their university studies in Art and Design who are keen on building upon this through handson training experience.
