Event description
A two month long online drawing course that will take you from the basic principles of measuring right the way through to drawing portraits

About this event

The class will be broadcast live from our studio every Tuesday with Tadeus leading and Gabriel modelling. There will be the option for you to watch it again with a private link. However, we do prefer attendance so that you can keep up with the course, homework, and one-on-one evaluations. You will work with the live model during each interactive session with the help of our tutors. It is highly recommended you attend the class with a monitor or larger screen. The weekly class is followed by a homework exercise emailed to you, to be completed before the next week and one-on-one mentoring session tailored to individual needs. The course ends with a curated exhibition of artworks at a local gallery and/or an online auction.

Format

  • Weekly 2-hour interactive class broadcast live from our studio
  • Weekly individual 45 min evaluation and mentoring via Zoom one-on-one with Tadeus.
  • Homework exercises weekly that reflect the content of the class
  • Final art show at a local art gallery and/or online auction
  • Follow up session one month from the class

The number of participants is limited so as the course progresses it can be tailored to the attending

students’ individual needs.

    Philosophy of the Burnt Sienna Art School

    Burnt Sienna art school Berlin offers two core courses in drawing and painting, these courses take place once every season. Louise Thomas is currently tutor at the Newlyn School of Art alongside directly Burnt Sienna. The traditional teaching techniques and methods Louise brings from this highly respected art school in Cornwall are brought to Berlin and work alongside contemporary methods including curation of an exhibition of student work in a local gallery. Unlike other independent art schools in Berlin, Burnt Sienna Art School Berlin limits class sizes in order to ensure the highest level of artistic development and flexibility towards methods of teaching. We cultivate modern ideas alongside traditional techniques and harness something in the vibrancy of the Berlin art scene.
