You can sign up now for all classes.
Do you start many different sketchbooks and never finish one? Do you want to learn many different sketching techniques and have an experienced artist guide you in the process of finding your own voice? Do you want to be part of a relaxed and supportive community of people who share a love for art and a non performative attitude about their own practice?
Then this is the art class for you.
Every Monday evening, from 18 to 20 Berlin time, G Caruso will hold a Sketchbook Practice workshop structured in the old “Bottega d’Arte” style: the class starts with a round of check-in to see how everybody is doing and how their practice is proceeding, then G will show a step-by-step demo about a specific technique or subject, and in the end we will do a feedback round where everybody can share their experience and ask more questions.
The format is flexible and tailored to the specific group of students present, focused on developing a consistent practice mindset and unlocking creative blocks.
Many students in the past years have started and finished sketchbooks during G’s classes, finding the regular classes the right input for their practice.
G’s teaching is informal, inclusive and neurodivergent friendly, there is no social pressure and you can have the level of live interaction you’re comfortable with.
The classes will take place via zoom and a recording will be available in case you miss it.
What are we going to do?
During the Monday classes G is going to address a series of techniques and concept, by the following calendar:
