Croquis Class
The aim of Croquis Nights (https://www.facebook.com/croquisnights/) is to train fast sketching of live models and subsequently make animations from those sketches. The drawing sessions are held every Monday from 18 – 19h at Viipurinkatu 8. Open to all and no experience required, materials provided by us! As many times, words are not enough, we at Croquis Nights believe fast sketching is essential for communicating our thoughts in a comprehensive way. Croquis liberates us from the pressures of a perfect outcome and helps us focus on the essence of observation. Croquis (from the French, sketch) is a quick and sketchy drawing technique of a live model. We start with drawing four minute poses, increasingly shorten the drawing time and end each session with thirty second ones. The drawing sessions are held every Monday at Viipurinkatu 8, while the animation sessions are held bimonthly. Current teachers include the architect Pedro Aibéo and animation artists Jan Andersson and Maria Björklund. WHEN: Every Wednesday from 18 – 19h WHERE: Viipurinkatu 8, 00510 Helsinki (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Viipurinkatu+8,+00510+Helsinki,+Finland/@60.1909755,24.942143,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x46920986ba9eb2cb:0xcd06cf6354f0792e!8m2!3d60.1909755!4d24.9443317?f=q&hl=en&q=Viipurinkatu+8B,+Helsinki,+fi) FEE: 10 eur to be paid at the event http://croquisnights.com (http://croquisnights.com/)
