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
In the autumn semester, we were lucky to go out in the green while having a some days good weather. Even at the end of the summer we could use the natural environment several times to spend the day outside drawing, for natural studies ….. and taking a bath in between.
While having finest weather, we took the opportunity to draw Tapirs for the World Tapir Day. We will provide the drawings at an auction in New Yorck and will help to protect the animals.
This year we had to wait a long time until we received a message from the last applicant at the different academies. But now it is certain: in 2017, 80 per cent of our participants also made the leap to the university. Some applicants can choose the place of study because of multiple commitments. As a result, our success rate remains very high in the long term. We are very pleased with this development and wish everyone a great start and an eventful study.
