Campus Art Drawing Nature from Life

 

Drawing Nature From Life & Drawing at the Zoo by Alan Johnston

Ever since the first cave paintings man has been depicting wild animals and plants in art. From the flight path of a snowflake to the ‘architectural structures’ of plant skeletons and sketching moving animals… The observation and artistic interpretation of Nature has never been more pertinent as preserving natural environments all around the world is a burning edge issue.
This is not a scientific illustration course in strico sensu but more a general introduction into portraying nature through observation and using sketchbooks. At the end we’ll take a quick look at possible uses for our first impressions, working them up into pictorial compositions for paintings or to be integrated into the layout of a printed page.
It’s easier than it sounds - just come and try it and see!
 
The artist will provide all material including sketchbooks.
For the zoo day on Saturday, 9 December, please bring a folding stool, warm and waterproof outdoor clothes, snacks and a picnic, cameras. For students without a car, Alan can ensure transport from Bettembourg Train Station to the zoo and back (5 minutes one way). We will work in the tropical houses if the weather is too cold or rainy.
 
When: Saturdays 2:00-5:00 pm / November 25 & Dec 2, 16
Where: Belval Campus, Maison du Savoir, room 4.380
