Short Description:

The current course intends to define the notions of drawing space, point, line, plane as well as the principles of static image by focusing on the elements of tone, colour, texture, light and shadow; essential elements towards the composition of static image. The course consists of two parts: colour theory and head drawing. The course is articulated through several thematic areas such as colour theory, sound, synaesthesia as well as the notions of place and space; that aims to motivate the methodological boost of personal stylistic elements, imagination and expressive qualities.


Objectives - Learning Outcomes:

The main aims of the course are the methodological approach of the elements of line, point, colour, light and shade; critically considered towards the expressive depiction of the final idea either in painting or head drawing.
