What will I learn?
In this workshop you will learn to paint from a real model. After an introduction to the materials, the method of measurement and a few exercises, the work from the model begins. The first step is to make a preliminary drawing, which is then transferred to the canvas with the correct proportions. Next, step by step, we paint the colors and different layers. Our instructors will teach you how to mix skin colors, paint hair and realistically work out the facial features and expression.

What do I need to bring?
First of all: curiosity and a good attitude. You will receive a material list by e-mail after your registration. (If you don’t own any materials, the purchase costs can be quite high. But if that is too much for you at the beginning, you can also use materials from the Academy for a fee and decide afterwards if you want to buy them or not. The cost is therefore about 40 – 250 €, depending on what materials you already have).
