Drawing - Kolbe Academy

Drawing

In this course students will:

  • Learn the importance of good materials
  • Complete drawing exercises
  • Finish two master copy drawings using a rigorous step-by-step methodology with the help of a teacher

The master copy will be “from the flat,” meaning that the student will set up their paper next to a fully rendered drawing by a French master to copy in full.  The drawing will not be above any individual student’s level.  This will teach:

  • Accuracy
  • How to build a drawing from simple stages first
  • Mastering value
  • Turning a form
  • Final rendering

Handouts will be assigned, and lectures given on art history to show students the tradition of this technique.
