In this class/subject? we focus on creating two dimensional art. We teach you how to draw and paint. There will be a lot of practice in drawing in perspective, croquis, still life. We discuss art and learn art theory.
You work on your individual projects during your stay.
The workshop is always open, so if you want to spend all night in the studio, you can.
You get your own workspace/table, so you don’t have to clean after every class.
We do not expect you to be a skilled artist before you arrive, and there are no prerequisites to study art (or any other subject at our school for that matter).
Our next door neighbor is an art museum where, among other things, works from the JCE biennale is displayed when it is on tour.
When you study art at Vrå Folk High School, you work with many different disciplines, all of which have one thing in common: they are two-dimensional. We have two basic disciplines: drawing and painting
you will learn and try:
- Drawing techniques
- Acrylic Colors
- Oil Colors
- Chalk and Crayons
You will produce heaps of drawings on different materials. You will try lots of different exercises and have room for experimentation during class. We will dive deep into the world of art history and get to know some of that world’s excellence.
In the classroom, you will be assigned your own worktable, where you can keep your works, and you will have your own locker where you can keep your personal materials. You can as an artstudent use the workshop 24:7. Every body is welcome to join the class. There are no pre-requisite requirements.
