Bargue’s Drawing & Wash

Course Syllabus/ Description

This class will focus on the basis of drawing, proportions and values, and we will go further with all these concepts. We will draw using free hand (no ruler or other tool),
and will learn how to measure proportions with just hand and eye. Shading will be made with washes of watercolor.
This class is based on Bargue’s plates, a standard method used since 19th century (I will give you links for free references).
In general, we will draw and paint one different plate each week, in class.
This class is suggested to be followed around 2-4 months long.


The class is a session of 2 hours, each week.
Student can choose to attend the class on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday (please choose only one day). So for a given month, there will be 4 sessions of 2 hours (8 hours in total).
In general, the class is set at 9:00am-11am PST (i.e 12-2pm EST / 5:00-7:00pm UK / 6:00-8:00pm Europe).
In some cases, the schedule of the class could be adjusted if required by students ; if you live in EST time zone, I can also set the class starting at 9:00 or 10:00am EST if preferred). Just contact me and ask.

The cost is 140$/month, for the standard courses (4 weeks regular class).
