In the basic year, we’ll deal with all the basic principles. By working on specific assignments you’ll investigate what constitutes an image. There will be lessons from different tutors, each of whom teaches, in a block of six lessons, dealing with a particular aspect, such as form, composition, colour and space. How, for example, to get the right proportions or form down on your paper? How to work with light and shadow in a drawing? What’s possible with colour in a painting?
Or, how to create the suggestion of spatial perspective? In this course, you’ll learn more about all this and also be introduced to various materials such as charcoal, pastels, acrylics and Indian ink.The basis course starts twice a year, once in February and again half of September. After you have done the first half year, you can continue on the same time in the second half year to follow the other lessons of the basic year.

This course contains the following blocks:
In a straightforward fashion, you’ll learn how to successfully arrive at the right form and size of an object. Drawing like a sculptor, you’ll start by ‘hacking out’ the rough forms. Using more refined techniques you’ll arrive at the right proportions and an accurate impression of a still-life. You’ll also learn how to work with light and shadow on paper to create the impression of a spatial object. We’ll be working with charcoal and ink on white paper as well as with white chalk on black paper. The image aspect that is handled here is: measure and compare.
This block is about how and where to position forms, objects and colours in your work. You’ll make studies of geometric figures in charcoal, pastels and collage. Then using objects you’ve chosen or brought with you, you’ll arrange your own still-life, based on the theory of underlying compositions. Once you’ve determined how you want to frame the still-life on your paper, you set to work in pastels. The image aspect that is handled here is: composition..
The variety of colour
In this block, you’ll be learning about colour – the basic techniques of mixing colours and the effect of the surroundings on colours, and through various assignments you’ll discover what makes up a colour. You’ll not only be mixing cool and warm colours, but also investigate colour contrast and colour tones, as well as making colour charts and painting a still-life with acrylic paint – in colour of course! The image aspect that is handled here is: mixing colours.
In this section, you’ll learn how to reproduce the space around you on paper. The basic principles of perspective – such as overlapping, linear perspective, multiple-point perspective and atmospheric perspective – will be dealt with intensively. In these lessons, we’ll be working with pencil and ink as well as collage. The image aspect that is handled here is: perspective.
Under the skin
How do you express the texture of cloth or other objects? That is what we’ll be dealing with in this section. The scaly skin of a fish, for example, will need to be treated differently than the bark of a tree trunk or a bird’s feathers. Using pencil and acrylic paint you’ll investigate how to express a suggestion of various different surfaces. The image aspect that is handled here is: texture.
The model on a flat surface
In this section, you'll get acquainted with reproducing a human model on a flat surface. In four lessons, we'll be working on the human figure and in two lessons we'll concentrate on just a portrait.The basic principles such as proportion, foreshortening, line wielding and the toning of colour will be dealt with in various studies. We'll work with an actual posing model, both while drawing as well as painting. For this block, 30 euros contribution for models money is included in the purchase price of a fixed course. The image aspect that is handled here is: The image aspect that is treated here is: ratio of the figure..
