Cursus tekenen en illustreren begint 6 maart 2017

Op maandagmiddag, 6 maart 2017 begint in Maaskoe, een voormalig kapitein´s huis aan de Maas, een teken- en illustratie cursus.
De cursus is al gehouden in Australie en in Duitsland. Nu gaat hij van start in Rotterdam.

Je leert de technieken en vaardigheden van het tekenen én illustreren. Bij tekenen alleen denken we vooral aan het natuurgetrouw overbrengen wat je voor je ziet. Bij illustreren komt ook de bijdrage aan een verhaal in afbeeldingen er nog bij. Dat kan natuurlijk ook natuurgetrouw zijn maar hoeft niet.

Starting a Drawing and Illustrating Course

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. 

Bringing shine and glitter in your drawings

For this christmas card I filled in the top row of little dots of the dresses with a golden pen and I put a dash of golden glitterglue in each little dot of the bottom rows.

 I show you here a detail of the girls but in a photo you can not see as well  how it shines of course. Anyway, it changed a nice card into a very festive card.

Some drawings and images, like the one shown here, would look really nice too with a dash of glitter and shine.



For most hobbies and occupations you need to invest money in a lot of things and often also space.

  •  For drawing you need a few things; paper and pencils. An eraser and a sharpener can come in handy too, and coloured pencils to brighten it all up.

  • You don´t need a fancy desk or office space. A kitchen table next to the window is a good place to draw. You can also draw in a train, a plane, outside, etc.      I can´t think of a place where you couldn´t draw, really.
