For those who want:
1) with a brush in hand to study the main artistic directions of the 20th century (Fauvism, Cubism, Orphism, Expressionism, Abstractionism, Surrealism, Op art... etc)
2) to navigate in a large number of pictorial practices, to master new techniques and open the mind
3) receive a powerful creative impulse, allow yourself to see, feel and act "differently"

Some lessons include a video lecture on the techniques specific styles.
Fauvism. Color revolution
(2 lessons)
In the first lesson we will do our color variation based on a black-and-white reproduction of one of the Fauvist landscapes (9 paintings to choose from). There are no rules: you can make the sky red and the water yellow.
In the finale, we will compare your work with the original painting by the Fauvist artist.

In the second lesson we transform the classical landscapes of famous Russian artists into Fauvism. To do this, we will make a reference in the form of a collage.

Artists whose work we will study:
Henri Matisse, Andre Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, Raoul Dufy.
Cubism. Down with three-dimensional space
(2 lessons)
Сubists do not draw cubes. They have a special look at the plane and volume. Moreover, they use a special color scheme.
In the lessons we will draw objects and fruits in the style of cubists.

Artists whose work we will study:
Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris
Orphism. Idealization through transformation
Based on a series of paintings by Mondrian, "Transformation of the Tree."
Each participant will receive a realistic photo with a tree (7 photos to choose from). Then you will draw the most successful transformation in color (2-3 sketches). Then you will choose the best sketch and draw a full-fledged work in the style of orphism.

Artists whose work we will study:
Robert Delaunay, Sonia Delaunay, Aristarch Lentulov

Expressionism. Franz Marc Animals
Franz Marc uses complex gradient stretch marks, so we'll practice this technique at a creative workout.
Then you can choose an option from 4 of Mark's works. And make a copy, passing the volume of the animal through a gradient stretch and plugging.
Expressionism. Seascapes by Emil Nolde
Let's figure out what is the secret of the expressionist seascapes.

At the creative warm-up, we will master the art technique - monotype, learn to express emotions through bold color schemes. You will learn how to make a recognizable plot out of random compositional spots.
In the main part of the lesson we will draw your variation on the works of Nolde. There are 6 landscapes to choose from.
Dadaism and surrealism. Absurd. Paradox. Unconscious
What to learn:
  • experiment with meanings
  • not be afraid of paradoxical forms
  • to build interesting compositions
  • create unusual visual effects
  • through drawing explore your unconscious
Artists whose work we will study:
Jean Arp, Yves Tanguy, Salvador Dalí, Francisco Picabia
We learn the technique of scraping and draw in the style of one of the most expensive artists of our time - Gerhard Richter
We will draw with construction spatulas.
