Portrait/Figure drawing

Wednesday from 19:30-22:00 h

Iemke van Dijk

For whom 
Beginning and advanced students.  Minimum age: 18 years.

In this course we work on a 'living model'.
We mainly work with (large format) charcoal, standing behind an easel.
You will practice focusing on alternating contour, light/shadow, direction/proportion and shape/residual shape.
Anatomy is also offered. All these aspects come together when we continue working on a drawing for longer. Drawing as a registration of the viewing process, separate from a proposed end result, which makes you enjoy drawing.
The course also uses examples of work by, for example, Durer, Rembrandt and Matisse to clarify the assignments.
This course will also deepen art appreciation.

The course includes use of material during the lessons.
You can buy materials for at home at Terpentijn. The first lesson you receive a LAK student card that gives you a 10% discount at Terpentijn.

Iemke van Dijk graduated at the Free Academy of The Hague and the Academy St. Joost of Breda. She’s been working as an artist and teacher since 1994. Iemke is fascinated by the difference between watching and seeing and the discoveries you make when you become aware of this difference.
