Traditional drawing

Academic drawing is a highly sought-after discipline at schools of Fine Arts, or in evening classes by passionate professionals. In an internship of this type, you will discover the bases of the drawing and its fundamental techniques: the measurement of your model, the learning of the perspectives, the assembly with the plumb line, the construction of the drapes, the games of shadow and light , The composition and the distribution of the spaces on your sheet. You will experience the drawing of observation through the still lifes in order to learn how to build your volumes and, above all, to observe and decompose the shapes that surround you. Beyond learning the techniques, you will discover and familiarize yourself with the tools that fill the designer's range: gum bread crumb, charcoal, blood, china or acrylic inks, rotring, and many others.


At the crossroads of relaxation and art, you will find the mandala, the rosette, and more generally, all the artistic currents using repetitive patterns, abstract shapes and geometry. In a workshop of this type, you will be able to study the history of the motifs, their semiology and their evolution through history. You will also be able to familiarize yourself with the practice, returning to the nostalgia of the compass, the protractor and the square to realize designs with rigor and perfection.
