Thorvaldsen’s sketch to the monument “Dying Lion (The Lucerne Lion)”, 1818.
In this course, participants will be introduced to anatomy, composition, proportion, plans etc. and will learn some fundamental drawing techniques that will be useful tools in the art of drawing. And of course, the teaching will start out from Thorvaldsen’s sculptures and the museum galleries, which you will be able to get to know by “close reading”.
The drawing course is under the direction of the graphic artist and painter Henrik Leach Hansen and is for anyone who would like to improve their drawing skills. The course also addresses those who have considered applying for admission to courses in aesthetic subjects such as design, architecture and painting.
Teaching will take place in the permanent exhibitions in Thorvaldsens Museum.
