Painting and Drawing Summer Course (#1) – C. K.

Painting and Drawing blog On the first day of class, we first drew while being taught by the teacher. The language may be difficult, but you don’t have to worry because there will be an interpreter. He was a very easy-to-understand, bright, and kind teacher. While I was free to take breaks, the interpreter took me to an art supply store that I had wanted to visit. Also, I was able to spend a very fulfilling time from the first day because I was told about shops that sell things I need for daily life and they were very kind.
Painting and Drawing blog The scenery on my way to school is beautiful, so I get excited every day…
Painting and Drawing blog The view from the library, which is a short walk from the school, is also beautiful.
Painting and Drawing blog It’s fun just walking around after school. I also look forward to going out to lunch with my new friends using the vouchers I received from school.
Painting and Drawing blog Whatever you eat is delicious♪
Painting and Drawing blog There are many cute gelato shops, and eating gelato in the hot weather is special!
Painting and Drawing blog Second and third day of classes. I learned how to trace the picture I wanted to draw, make holes with a needle, and transfer it onto other objects. Just like silkscreening, once you make tracing paper with holes made with a needle, you can draw on anything. However, it was quite difficult to make holes with a needle. Once you have transferred it to another piece of paper, you can start coloring it. I find coloring especially difficult, so I’m looking forward to next week’s class!
Painting and Drawing blog 4th day of class. I copied it using Sanguinho and pastels. It was difficult because it was my first time using both art supplies. The teacher teaches me while praising me, which is very motivating (^^). I was able to discover many issues, such as the importance of looking objectively and points that I would not have noticed on my own. After classes on the fourth day, we went on an art visit around Santa Croce and learned about the history of the buildings. I thought that places that I would normally pass by were the buildings where Michelangelo lived and places that were used in movies, so they were really fascinating places.
