Summer Drawing Workshop in Berlin

Drawing Course visits the Natural History Museum in Berlin

The Berlin Collective Summer Drawing Workshop still has space!!

The Berlin Collective Summer Drawing Workshop has gotten off to a great start, and we still have space for a couple more students! The class has been extended through the end of August, so get in touch if you are interested. Upcoming classes include a visit to the Natural History Museum, and drawing from a live model.

Summer Drawing Workshop
Berlin Collective : Mira O’Brien, Artist & Instructor

This course will introduce basic techniques in drawing, which will be developed into a personal project. Exercises will introduce drawing techniques and strategies in visual thinking. Drawing from observation will be the focus, taking advantage of the summer weather with plein air painting, visiting the incredible ready-made still lives of Berlin’s Natural History Museum, and drawing from a live model. The critique sessions and theoretical instruction held back in the studio will give rise to individual projects for the second part of the class. Each student will receive personalized instruction on his or her chosen project.

Meets Wednesday 6-9pm in my Kreuzberg studio, with occasional extra meetings in the field.

Cost: 10 euros an hour, 3 hours a day (30 euros a day)
