Join a drawing lesson where you will learn the basics of drawing. This time we will be drawing one of the masterpieces of Cornelis de Heem – the master of Dutch still life.

We will focus on what ‘still life’ is in art and the methods and techniques on how to draw it. We will discuss the following important notions:
– perspective
– form
– composition
– light and shadow

What to expect?
– a short introduction on Cornelis de Heem and still life in general
– instruction on drawing
– individual analysis of your drawing and hints for the future

It is an intensive drawing lesson with great tips for beginners.
