This course  is divided into 4 blocks of 3 lessons. Each block has its own teacher with its own expertise.

The first 3 lessons, (teacher: Lyda Bekker), we focus on painting, painting with acrylic paint.
In three lessons you will learn how to build up a painting in layers, what the function is of color and which paint strokes you can make. We do this on the basis of various assignments and by looking at the work of well-known artists, but also at the work of each other.

The second 3 lessons, (teacher: Robbert Kiewiet), you learn the basic techniques of the old masters. Works of art by old masters such as Rembrandt are the source of inspiration. In the lessons you will work with basic techniques such as tonality, perspective and composition. In the last lesson you will convert your own photo into a real old master drawing. We keep the material simple and mainly consists of pencil and eraser.

The third 3 lessons, (teacher: Iemke van Dijk), are based on a “living model”, both male and female. (portrait and (nude) model). We practice looking at the contour lines of a model, light/shadow, direction of lines/proportions, shapes and residual shapes. The material during these lessons will mainly be charcoal.

The last 3 lessons, (teacher: Maurice Braspenning), we will work with black ink and acrylic paint. The most important is to have fun creating and watching. The Japanese brush is a good way to work freehand and to allow more flexibility in the work.
We paint with acrylic with direct strokes. We work with brushes and spalters. We paint different subjects such as landscape, still life and an animal.

The course includes use of material during the lessons.
