Course Details

This course will look at three different art forms in separate sessions. The teacher will teach students the art of charcoal painting using the medium of charcoal. Students get to know the brief history of charcoal used as a medium of art from thousands of years. This course will then teach students on drawing or sketching with charcoal, how to make an outline, how to get the details etc. Further on, students get to learn the subtraction or addition method dominant when using charcoal for a piece of art. Subtraction in charcoal art, meaning applying a layer of charcoal on the sheet to erase out specific areas keeping in mind the lightness of shade or effect to be achieved. Similarly, the addition method will teach students on the way to make a portion of a drawing or painting look dense applying extra layers of charcoal. The final section of charcoal painting will guide students to use the medium of charcoal to create a still life art piece.

This course on coffee painting will look at using coffee as a medium for painting or creating an art piece. Coffee as a readily available ingredient is an exciting medium to work with. Though working with coffee creates monochromatic paintings, there are various effects and variations that can be achieved using coffee as a painting medium to make coffee painting different or realistic. Students in this course will also learn how to use coffee to get a variety of variations from the really dark tone to the lighter tone by adding water to coffee. They will also be taught the use of a brush used for painting the different portions in a coffee artwork. In this entire learning process, the student will be guided to create a complete art piece, right from drawing to filling it up or painting it with coffee to create a unique piece of art.

Next up, in this course students will get trained on Zentangles, which is an art of intricately using or incorporating lines and patterns in an art piece to create an independent design. It relies on creating structured patterns using different shapes to give, the piece of art, a uniqueness of its own. Students will be guided to use gel pens to challenge their creativity, to create one comprehensive design in color. Zentangles apart from being an exciting art form is also therapeutic in nature, requiring a lot of attention to detailing and constant emphasis on imagination.
