How do we paint people? In this course, you will learn how to accurately paint portraits and the figurative depiction of people.

The main emphasis of this drawing course will be the depiction of people, human beings. It is quite a challenge to capture humans in art, always has been. Whoever is interested in getting to know people, "learning" people, has the opportunity to do so nonverbally in portraiture. Both artist and sitter will so definitely be enriched by the end of the day.

At the beginning Brigitte Guhle will give you a short introduction in theory. Then we will start to paint from a photo first, and a real life sitter, a model, after. Würzburg is full of potential motifs. The emphasis of this course is on the depiction of the person: portrait, but also different figurative positions such as standing, sitting, walking... we will depict it all.

Target group: This course is meant to be for beginners with a little prior knowledge in drawing as well as for advanced learners. 

Where do we paint/sketch/draw? Mainly in the studio.
