Vincent Van Gogh – Portrait drawing class in Kunsthaus

Vincent Van Gogh – Portrait drawing class in Kunsthaus


Book a drawing lesson where you will learn the basics of drawing, including some drawing tricks, which will make your drawing exercise easier.

We will be drawing one of the masterpieces of Van Gogh, though a little bit less known. A touching portrait of a peasant, created when Van Gogh was in Arles, France.
We will focus on sketching face, its proportions and the correct reflection of the emotions.

What to expect?:
– a short introduction on sketching portraits and a history background of this painting
– individual analysis of your drawing and hints for the future
– sketching in great atmosphere in the walls of Zurich Kunsthaus.

Book this session for yourself or make this workshop a creative gift for your friends.

Duration: 2 hours

After booking we will agree on a day and time which will suit us best.
