Akt und Naturstudien

2021S, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S02693


With life drawing, an essential part of the subject of object studies, a discipline consisting of ever new combinations of historical examples and contemporary approaches, the mixing of traditional and progressive as well as formally bound and artistically free contents is examined.



Our courses are entirely focused on practical activities and on-site experimentation. The task of capturing a three-dimensional object and implementing it two-dimensionally cannot be realized via video learning. Nevertheless, you can use your creativity and initiative to advance your studies and complete your LV positively. Instead of nude drawings, nature studies will be accepted for the exam this semester. I leave you every freedom in the choice of the motif and the materials used. No matter what you draw, in my opinion it is important that you train to get from the three-dimensional object to the two-dimensional implementation. In this respect, it makes less sense to draw representations from books. Instead, take an everyday object such as an armchair, a kitchen utensil or tool. (Patient) roommates, pets, houseplants, yourself in the mirror - all these are worthwhile motifs from which much can be made.

You will get more tips and suggestions from me via base during the semester.

You have the possibility to meet with me during the current semester (after prior appointment and testing) to discuss intermediate results. Of course, you can also send in individual or multiple works as PDFs by mail at any time and get feedback. It is important to me to provide you with this important opportunity for exchange, and I encourage you to make use of it.
