In maart (2018) zal de laatste teken/illustratie cursus in Rotterdam plaatsvinden.
Want na de zomer vertrek ik weer naar Australie.
De cursus biedt een gevarieerd programma dat alle kanten en facetten van tekenen
vooral, maar ook illustreren, belicht en in praktijk brengt.
De lokatie is direkt aan de Maas. Als je even niet tekent, kan je zo vanuit je stoel naar
de voorbijvarende schepen op het water en de mensen op de kade kijken.
Links zie je de groene torentjes van hotel New York en rechts de SS Rotterdam.
In about a month the schools have started again, and so will the Drawing and Illustrating Courses in Berlin.
I offer on Mondays a course for children in the afternoon and one for adults in the evening (both in German). You can also do a course Online when that suits you better.
Online is more flexible, of course, as you are not committed to the Mondays.
And if you live in nowhere or somewhere far away from Berlin than an Online Drawing and Illustrating Course might be just the thing for you.
My many years of experience with drawing and illustrating as well as with teaching Drawing I have collected in a book. I can not tell you when I started this lesson book as that is really a long time ago, but I finished it end of last year (2013).
It is printed on a good quality paper, in full colour and ringbinded so you can leave the book open on your table. It contains 100 pages full of illustrations, instructions, ideas and inspiration.
I always thought that lesson books are meant to be complicated and difficult to understand so that one gets the feeling of learning something worth while.
Illustrating is like giving a drawing a purpose.
You can illustrate a letter, a story, or a whole book.
You can illustrate a powerpoint presentation for work, or a handbook with instructions. You can illustrate a boring study book in such a way, that students will find it easier and nicer to study and take more in.
You can illustrate a children´s book so that a child will remember it fifty years down the track. And of course, you can illustrate a card and send it away.
You can also illustrate a point you want to make or a joke.
Starting a drawing course
Another schoolyear has begun and new courses are starting everywhere as well.
I am also starting again. It will be my third year of teaching drawing in Berlin for young people from 9 years old up, in German, on Saturday mornings.
