Croquis is a fantastic tool to practice hand-eye-coordination, sort of like cardio training for the artist. Croquis is french and means ”quick drawing” or ”quick sketch”. During this course you practice seeing and expressing shapes and portray the human without filter.
The technique is dependent on not getting stuck on details, instead search for lines and shapes that create movement and balance in the picture. It takes concentration and focus, you will have to leave your worldly issues behind and enter the process.
We use both pencil and coal. The course can be held indoors or outdoors depending on the weather and requests from the group.
