Fundamentals of Drawing

with Sofia Economou

Students will learn the fundamentals of drawing through artistic and technical methods.
Just as how musicians learn scales to expand their repetoir, participants will learn observational and technical skills that would allow them greater freedom of expression.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a fun environment to strengthen the core principals of drawing, while engaging the history and contemporary state of Athens. No prior skill necessary.

Workshop: Upcycling furniture 

Tutor: Dimitri Yin

Length: 4 sessions per month

The cycle furniture workshop will give participants the chance to create each time a different type of small scale furniture. During these classes participants will learn how to use tools, how to make a 2d plan into a 3d model ready to be used. Basic woodwork, metalwork and design experience will be gained.
