Christmas Zoo

With Barbara Calzolari & Tiziana Gironi

Starting Date : 26 Nov 2022

Fees : HK$ 1,000 or US$ 130

Workshop Description

Lesson 1 - We will learn the basic shapes of the Varsity letters, numbers and signs. We will also learn to draw a realistic donkey, starting from studying its reference image, respecting shapes and proportions. We will observe its anatomy and the characteristics that distinguish it - long ears, stocky body, short legs, tail with a tuft, large hooves. We will isolate the various parts of the body: head, neck, trunk and legs by building a pattern that will allow us to draw it more easily. Using this pattern we will also draw more imaginative donkeys in different positions, exaggerating its characteristics: longer ears, shorter legs, bigger head, bigger hooves. The final drawing will be made with the brush, ink and watercolor. 

Lesson 2 - We will study the graphic variations to the "varsity" alphabets, and using the same methods used for drawing the donkey, we will learn to draw a polar bear.

Lesson 3 - We will draw a reindeer in the same way as for the other two animals. Then we will combine letters and the animals, creating a composition  that can be used for designing a card, placeholder, ticket, etc.
