INTRODUCTION TO DRAWING

Drawing_2019_Resized

TUTOR: PETRA LUDVIGSON


THIS 6 WEEK COURSE WILL RUN EACH THURSDAY EVENING FROM 1 AUGUST until 5 SEPTEMBER

EACH CLASS WILL START AT 6PM AND FINISH AT 9PM


This class is designed for both beginners new to drawing, and for students who would like a refresher on the fundamentals of drawing.

Through a combination of theory, technical instruction and fun practical lessons run over 6-weeks, students will explore a range of subjects including still life, life drawing, how to draw faces, landscapes and drawing ‘plein air’.

Through these exercises, students will learn about looking and drawing what we see, different ways to make marks, creating shape and form, light and shadow, negative spaces, perspectives, and basic composition.

Detailed handouts will be provided each week along with exercises for students to further their development between sessions.


About Petra Ludvigson:

Petra Ludvigson is an abstract expressionist painter with a background in conceptual art. Starting her training at ASA in 1996 and graduating with a BVA from AUT in 2006, she has enjoyed a 20 yr+ relationship with the Auckland art world.

Utilizing line and texture, her work explores the female form as an abject location. Desire, objectification, expectation, possession, reproduction, power and control…. the female body becomes occupied and the self is leaked out.

Alongside her own art practice and teaching adult education, Petra runs art therapy groups for people living with dementia and adults with special needs.
