What to Expect:

Learn about art and art history by studying the masterpieces on display at the Berlin state museums and also Berlin parks, opening another dimension to your sketchbook practice. Each class has a specific focus and we will work from specifically selected artworks. During these classes we will explore the history of drawing animals and discover the history behind mythological and magical creatures. Learn drawing animal anatomy and how to render textures such as fur and scales.

The museum artworks come alive as we make studies and learn techniques with the guidance of classically trained artist G Caruso. G provides step by step technical demonstrations, revealing subtle secrets hidden within the process behind the artworks. The museum experience can go from overwhelming to intimate, as you develop unique relationships through your drawing practice with individual artworks and artists. Instead of spending 10 seconds in front of 200 paintings or sculptures, spend two hours getting know how just one artwork really works and what it has to offer you for your own practice.
