Seriously improve your drawing skills in just six weeks!
We approach drawing as a craft, which we will teach you through sessions of long and short term life drawing sessions and other exercises. You are taught a specific method of drawing inspired by the old renaissance masters, based on fundamental aesthetic principles like form, construction and composition. Working with the fundamental principles of drawing will not only improve your classical drawing skills but also give you a skillset that can be transferred to all kinds of visual expressions.

Bursting with ideas? Learn how to visualize them through drawing!
Through a combination of lectures, exercises and personal projects, you will practice various aspects of visualization like color, composition and design of visual elements like characters and environments. At the end of the course you will be doing a personal project. Professionals working with illustration, comics or similar will guide you through the exercises and projects.
