Drawing in the City, urban theater

Détail du cours

Sketchbook in hand, with Paris as a backdrop, learn to look at an urban environment and acquire the basics of technical drawing.

The sketchbook is the support of the course, it articulates the work accomplished and calibrates the progress of a personal writing. The pedagogical progression allows students to acquire the keys to the representation of urban space. The essential notions of the representation of the space are approached, a particular attention will be carried on the rendering of the atmosphere of places, through the work of light and framing.

In order to establish a few fundamentals, the classes will first take place in Beaux-Arts de Paris, before exploring the surrounding area the historical heart of Paris (Quays of the Seine, gardens of the Palais Royal, Louvre, the streets of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and all the possibilities offered by the richness of the surroundings). The climatic variations climatic variations will allow us to draw as well in interior spaces (Chapelle des Beaux-Arts, Palais of studies, museums, churches, covered passages) that outside (court of the Mulberry, court of the Fine arts of Paris, streets, banks, bridges, squares, parks and gardens).
