COURSES & WORKSHOPS All LineScape workshops and courses have an emphasis on drawing.

Depending upon their focus, they can happen outdoors under the open sky, in architecture offices or in artist studios. If desired, specific workshops and excursions can be organized, both for individuals and small groups. Courses can also be certified as continuing professional education by architecture chambers.

Anyone can learn to draw. This wonderful creative act gives us a freedom to explore and express… and with the right motivational instruction, it’s always a lot of fun. My courses are not just for professional designers, they can be conceived at every level and for anyone who enjoys drawing.

Drawing the architecture and landscape
of Trentino and Veneto, June 03. - 06. 2021

The wonderful region around Lake Garda provides a rich setting for drawing and watercolour painting en plein air. We are surrounded by an infinite array of inspirational motifs, both architectural gems and natural settings. Our perceived impressions are held on paper, and can be expressed in very unique ways using lines, gestures and colours, often arriving at very personal visualizations of the places seen and graphic effects.

This intensive 4-day course involves several day trips around the Lago di Garda, in both Trentino and Veneto.

Participants

This course is conceived for those who have already drawn and watercolour sketching outdoors, and is ideal for architects and landscape architects, as well as for students of creative disciplines. The day trips to the different cities offer motifs, which are varied and, at times, complex. However, even the less experienced sketcher and painter can choose simpler motifs for their pictures, and, with practice, can achieve increasingly sophisticated scenes and images in a short space of time.

We will learn and practice:

  • Putting quick and sovereign lines on paper... review of basic steps.
  • Constructing a perspective: 1 point, 1 point and aerial
  • Seeing a good picture: the principles of good composition and emphasis
  • Reduction and perception: Highlighting what is important, leaving out what is not
  • Expressive colour applications, working with gestures and techniques to achieve unique effects
  • Achieving spatial effects: implementing shade and shadows
  • Arriving at a personal style, experimenting with abstraction and gesture

The course is limited to small groups (min. 10 to max. 18 people). The course is held in German, but English supervision is always possible.

Day trips include

Lago di Garda, Riva del Garda, Verona, Torbole, Malcesine and Vicenza (always weather permitting)

IDEAS FOR A COURSE?

Tell me what you’d like to learn and we can put together a course. Below are some examples of what we could do …

COURSES IN FREEHAND DRAWING AND SKETCHING

Drawing remains the most instinctive way to visualize first ideas quickly and expressively on paper. Confident, quick sketches can not only document what we see, they can also be part of communicating to others, and play an important role when designing and developing new concepts. Freehand drawing enhances creativity, gives us a personal freedom to explore, perceive and express the world around us. And not least, drawing and sketching is fun.

GOALS

LineScape courses can help increase confidence when drawing and communicating on paper, whether a quick sketch or a final presentation. Individual styles and graphic expression can become a distinct and recognizable signature feature.

Once confidence is achieved, drawing can be integrated into the daily routine and, in the planning professions, can help effectively persuade and communicate with others.

Workshops and courses with emphasis on freehand drawing, sketching and illustration can be conceived to meet individual needs, from beginners’ level to advanced courses, even in combination with digital media (Photoshop).

TARGET GROUPS

Courses can be put together for professional landscape architects, planners and designers, as well as for laypersons and enthusiasts.

POSSIBLE TOPICS AND THEMES

  • Quick sketching, contour drawing and construction
  • Drawing spaces/ principles of perspective
  • Rendering and surfaces, light and shadows
  • Still life, observation i.e. people, vegetation
  • Drawing and digital enhancement
  • Artistic themes, abstraction and reduction, style and expression

COURSES IN WATERCOLOUR SKETCHING

The linework of a hand drawing can be uniquely enhanced with watercolours, and amplified with gestures and effects.

These LineScape courses involve visiting inspiring landscapes and cities, and drawing on site. Being outside heightens the senses and sharpens our observational skills. The resulting drawings are often very personal and expressive, since seeing is selective and participants can focus on what interests them.

The drawing courses that happen outside of our daily environments and routine, especially the excursions in Italy, offer many inspirational motifs for drawing. The break from the digital world and the immersion in beautiful landscapes often gives the mind a freedom to explore new ideas with pencil and brush.

GOALS

These artistic and creative drawing courses not only train graphic skills, they fine-tune perception and observation, offering the possibility to achieve individual creative expression.

TARGET GROUPS

Architects, landscape architects and designers, as well as anyone who enjoys drawing and watercolour sketching under the open sky.
Basic drawing skills are desirable but courses can be fine-tuned to any level.

POSSIBLE TOPICS AND THEMES

  • Basics of freehand drawing and sketching (indoors and outdoors)
  • Drawing three dimensional objects and spaces
  • Principles of perspective and construction
  • Exploring graphic styles and effects
  • Day trips and excursions to landscape and urban areas, individual drawing/ emphasis on site (landscape/ architecture/ botanical studies/ details/ urban sketching…)
