WORKSHOP IN HET NEDERLANDS, FRANS OF ENGELS

Tijd: 10:00 – 12:30

Waarom is er zoveel stress over wat/hoe te schetsen? Ontspan je! Bekijk de scène op een creatieve en intuïtieve manier, vind je unieke ‘handtekening’ en JUST DRAW IT!

We kunnen ons ongemakkelijk voelen bij het schetsen of overweldigd worden door de omgeving. We vragen ons af of we echt “de gave” hebben om goed te tekenen. Een dergelijke druk om te presteren kan zelfs het plezier van het schetsen wegnemen.

Geïnspireerd door Betty Edwards’ methode “tekenen vanuit de rechterzijde van de hersenen”, heb ik een aantal urbansketching oefeningen ontwikkeld, om het tekenen toegankelijker te maken en de angst voor het maken van een “slechte” tekening weg te nemen. Laten we het schetsen vloeiender, bevredigender en vrolijker maken!

In deze workshop oefenen we hoe we op een ontspannen manier kunnen kijken en schetsen wat we zien, waarbij we overweldiging vermijden en elke deelnemer zijn eigen “handtekening” laten zoeken. Aan het einde van de sessie zal elke deelnemer een manier hebben ervaren en onderzocht om zijn/haar eigen tekenstijl te vinden en op een intuïtieve manier wat aquarel toe te voegen.

Why stress over what/how to sketch? Relax! Look at the scene in a creative and intuitive way, find your unique ‘handdrawing’ and JUST DRAW IT!

We may feel uncomfortable with our sketching skills or overwhelmed by the environment. We wonder if we really have “the gift” to draw well. Such pressure to perform may even take away the joy of sketching.

Inspired by Betty Edwards’ method “drawing from the right side of the brain”, I developed some urbansketching exercises, to make drawing more accessible and to take away the fear of making a “bad” drawing. Let’s make our sketching more fluid, satisfying and joyful!

In this workshop we will practice how to look and sketch in a relaxed way what we see, avoiding overwhelm and allowing each participant to search for her/his own “handdrawing”. At the end of the session each participant will have experienced and researched a way of finding his/her own drawing style and added some watercolour in an intuitive way.

Learning goals

  1. Learn how to really look at an urban subject in a way that activates the right part of the brain
  2. Learn some observation tips to make a “correct” drawing without getting into detailed perspective rules
  3. Learn the basic drawing perception skills:

The basic perception skills are:

  • the perception of edges (seeing where one thing ends and another starts)
  • the perception of spaces (seeing what lies beside and beyond)
  • the perception of relationships (seeing in perspective and in proportion)
  • the perception of light and shadows (seeing things in degrees of values)
  • the perception of gestalt (seeing the whole and its parts)

“Learning to draw is really a matter of learning to see – to see correctly- and that means a good deal more than merely looking with the eye” [Kimon Nicolaides, the Natural Way to Draw]
