Atelier Drawing & Painting Summer School 2018

Figure Drawing Week 1 // Monday July 23rd - Friday July 27th // 10:00 - 13:00

Figure Painting Week 2 // Monday July 30th - Friday August 3rd // 10:00 - 13:00


This summer BlockT is offering the opportunity to experience an overview of traditional atelier training in the drawing and painting of the figure. Atelier methods focus on training artists in fundamental techniques of draughtsmanship and painting and is a proven way to bring artists’ ability to new levels. The instructor is Nicholas Robinson, a graduate and award winner of the Florence Academy of Art, Sweden.

Figure-drawing Week 1
In the first week students draw from the figure in pencil or charcoal. The instruction aims to enable the artist to use line, tone and contour to develop a greater accuracy in thier drawing ability. The overall goal is for the artist to see their drawing as a unified whole as opposed to a collection of parts and details.
Dates: Monday July 23rd - Friday July 27th, 10:00-1:00pm. (15 hours)

Figure-painting Week 2
During the second week students are introduced to the fundamentals of figure-painting in oil paint. Instruction is based on the student’s seeing, mixing and painting accurate colours on the model which best describe the light, form and gesture of the model.
Dates: Monday July 30th - Friday August 3rd, 10:00-1:00pm. (15 hours)

The model’s pose will be kept over the entire 2 weeks which offers the maximum time to study all aspects of the figure in either drawing or painting or both. Class sizes are strictly limited to 10 students. The instructor works alongside each person explaining techniques and offering critiques.

By the completion of the summer school participants will have a clear understanding of the techniques and steps involved in painting and drawing in the atelier method, as well as increased levels of observational skill. No prior experience is necessary, only a strong interest in drawing and painting from life. Participants are welcome to join for either the drawing week, the painting week or for the full 2 weeks instruction.


COURSE FEE: 1 Week €215
