Your easy start if you want to learn with us. The basis for all further drawing classes with us. Not only for beginners!

In our introductory class you will learn general drawing basics: how to see shapes, abstract them and put them on paper, measure your object or model, set light and shadow and describe forms with the right edges. We mainly draw with charcoal pencils because it is a very good training medium - flexible, quick and simple. However, the methods and principles you learn in this drawing course also apply to any other medium, such as graphite and also painting.

The lessons have a structured sequence, but adapt to your abilities and learning speed.

We recommend that everyone takes this course before any other drawing course. This course is not only for beginners, but also the basis for all other courses (including painting) with us. We provide you with the material for this course so that you can start immediately. Afterwards you will have learned the basic principles, so that you can participate more effectively in our art school with more specific fundamental classes.
