workshops: line and color


Before and now of drawing. The materials, visual education. Expressive value of drawing. Objectives: Initiation to the discovery of the fact of drawing. Observation and comprehension of the visual fact; visual grammar. Approach to reality, descriptive drawing, structure, form, volume... Traditional drawing techniques and materials, charcoal, pencil, chalk, ink...

To initiate the student in the study of the three-dimensional form and its graphic representation from the observation of nature.

To provide the student with basic notions of image syntax and methods of visual analysis of structural skeletons of three-dimensional forms.

Drawing I

A basic overview of the creative and professional possibilities of drawing is offered, as well as a historical overview of its uses and functions. Priority is given to structure and fit, but at the same time it is introduced to the knowledge of the different styles of representation in art. On the other hand, it initiates in the creative act.


  • Structural syntax of the form
  • Basic elements in the configuration of the two-dimensional image.
  • The line as an element that shapes the idea.
  • Fit and proportion.
  • Volume: function of the line and expressive language of drawing.
  • The spatial illusion through line and stain.
  • Resources for the representation of spaces (perspective, etc.).
  • The use of color as a spatial generator.
  • The representation of natural forms throughout history/cultures
  • Initiation to the creative process.

Drawing II

Once the structure and fit of the drawing is learned, light, volume and chiaroscuro are explored in depth.

We work with different techniques and materials and there is an introduction to wet techniques. The natural forms are represented with more fluency through various procedures. Approach to different artistic languages; and analysis and representation of different styles and movements. Creativity is exercised as a personal value of the students.


  • Introduction to the analysis and reflection on techniques, materials and procedures.
  • Line and stain in representation: materials and processes.
  • Dry and wet procedures.
  • Space in two-dimensional representation II
  • Resources for the representation of spaces (types of perspective II).
  • The use of color as a spatial generator II.
  • Evolution of the representation of natural forms throughout history/cultures.
  • Theories on composition and reading of works in various fields (art, advertising, etc.).
  • Personal creation as a value to be exploited and valued.
