Starting a Drawing and Illustrating Course

Posted on August 8, 2014 at 7:54 AM Comments comments (0)
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. 



The difference between Drawing and Illustrating, in my opinion, is that Drawing is what you see with your eyes and then draw on paper.
Illustrating also has to do with creating an illusion or depicting a little story or thought. An illustration does not have to look realistic but it should come over as believable.




In this Drawing and Illustrating Course we combine the two aspects, which gives you in the end the option to go either way or stay somewhere in the middle.

The courses in Stadtteilzentrum Pankow (in Berlin) go for 12 weeks, starting on the 8. September 2014. The Online Course you can start when suits you and you can take up to 12 months to complete. 

More info you will find on my website,  hooywerk.com

One hand and your eyes are all you need to be able to draw.

Pigs fly. Varkentjes vliegen

A little while ago I broke my foot. The foot is now in plaster and I walk with one leg and two crutches around. There is quite a bit I can not do for a while.
I can´t ride my bike, can not drive        (I don´t have a car anyway), can hardly walk, can´t shower, can´t play a sport, etc. etc.
But I can still draw which I do more as usual now.
In my classes I have sometimes people with a handicap. They might not be able to use their legs or have maybe only one arm.
But you only need one hand and good eyesight (or good glasses) to be able to draw. I had a girl come to my drawing classes who could not speak. But she drew beautiful and often helped the other kids.
I would like to see more people with a handicap draw.
When I draw I feel free as a bird. I can draw whatever I like. We all can.
There is really nothing that could not be drawn. Nothing at all.
