Dynamic Drawing and Painting with Hans Van Weert: Monday 9.30am - 12:00pm


The objectives of the class are to draw and paint while maintaining a dynamic quality of the work. To capture the moment but also show that this moment is part of a continuum, with energy and tension even in images of still objects. To produce artwork that is about movement or energy more that about precision, about emotion or impression more than about likeness.
