For whom  
There is no experience required for this course, only a dose of enthusiasm. 

Content
This course is divided into 3 blocks of 4 lessons. Each block has its own teacher with her own expertise.

The first 4 lessons, (teacher: Robbert Kiewiet), you learn the basic techniques of the Old Masters. Works of art by Old Masters such as Rembrandt are the source of inspiration. In the lesson you will work with basic techniques such as tonality, perspective and composition. In the last lesson you will transform your own photo into a real Old Master drawing. We keep the material simple with pencil and eraser.

The second 4 lessons, (teacher: Lyda Bekker), we focus on painting with acrylic paint. Acrylic paint is that dries quickly which makes this paint particularly suitable for painting in layers, resulting in form and depth. We will discuss the different assignments individually as well as in groups, so you can learn from each other's work.

The final 4 lessons, (teacher: Iemke van Dijk), we work with a "living model", both male and female. Portrait and (nude) models. We will practice  the contour lines of a model, light / shadow, direction of lines / proportions, shapes and residual shapes. The material for these lessons will mainly be charcoal.

Ultimately, these 12 lessons provide a good basis for both technical handles and the development of your own handwriting.
