Drawing en plein air. The opportunity for full concentration and intensive work is made possible by a number of days of continuous drawing practice. It brings an increase in the level of drawing as well as the opportunity to try other art techniques: watercolour, pastel, red, charcoal, etc. The aim of the plein air is to practise drawing and the use of painting techniques from sketch, compositional sketch to more demanding studies. Emphasis is placed on depicting space through seen perspective, capturing proportional relationships and scale. On this basis, the artistic quality of the drawing or painting is further appreciated.


Ongoing consultations with teachers, handing in drawings by the deadline set by the teacher.
