After it was quite cold in September we were still lucky with the weather in October and enjoyed the warm weather. We arranged a visit at the Berlin Zoo as every year. Even if there are usually critical voices, the visit is a very special plus for the drawing units, as you can`t see such a variety of body forms nowhere else as in the zoo. And so this time the visit was again a success.
Also this semester we have once again made a unit on the subject of film studies in collaboration with the artist Chris Schaal. Chris works as a freelance filmmaker in Stuttgart and also teaches at the Art Academy there. Like last year this unit has been a lot of fun and has produced a lot of good results.
In order to develop ideas, we recommend our participants to work intensively with sketches. Drawing in sketches, thinking is a direct and very personal realization of ideas. You will see that every day you develop a little more your own language of form and your individual drawing style
At the beginning of the semester, a three-hour nude drawing session takes place once a week. We have a different model every time and we work on the most varied problems of figure representation. Here people from the course as well as people from “outside” come together, simply everyone who is interested in figurative drawing
