Workshop: Bargue’s drawing Methode

September 12/23 2022

This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn to draw.

In traditional art education, sample pictures were used that the student had to copy.

Charles Bargue developed his “Cours de dessin” in collaboration with Jean-Lėon Gérôme in 1886-1871. The course consisted of a series of lithographs of schematic and detailed drawings of plaster casts of statues.

The Bargue course was very popular in its day, but has since been forgotten. A few enthusiasts, including Daniel Graves founder and director of the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, have rediscovered the Bargue method.

In September 2022 I will give a workshop in the AdA studio in Vissingy France. For two weeks I will guide you in drawing one or more Bargue drawings. (1 week lesson is also possible)

September 12/16  – €350    September 19/23. – €350  September 12/23  –  €600

You have access to the studio all day long. Instruction is in the morning hours from 9 to 12 o’clock. Joke Frima adapts her supervision to the individual possibilities and wishes of the students if possible.

Stay overnight on location? 200 euros per week 300 for 2 weeks, single bedrooms.

There is a kitchen at your disposal, where you can prepare your own meals.

The number of students

The number of students per workshop is a maximum of 8. Each student must become a member of the non-profit association AdA, €20 per year.

If you are interested, push the apply button and ask for more information if needed. 

October Workshop

On special request, AdA will reschedule this spring’s workshop from October 3-7, 2022.

During the workshops we drew with charcoal and in parallel we painted with oil paint. First, the students drew a construction with the correct shape and proportions. This was done using “comparative measurement”. Before the drawing was further elaborated, we transferred the construction to a painting surface.
In this way we were able to develop the two studies, one in charcoal, the other in oil paint, at the same time.

A simple subject has been chosen so as not to face too many difficulties at once.
This gives the students the opportunity to follow all the steps of the process of making a drawing and a painting in the five days of the workshop.

Workshop 3 – 7 October –  €350 – plus €20 for a year membership of the association AdA.

Atelier/Apprenticeship programme 

Atelier

AdA is an atelier and not a school. The Three Year Atelier programme is divided into three years or periods, the beginning, the advanced and the further advanced student. The exact time spent in each period will be individually adapted. This depends on the personal development and progress of the student. Students can register for three months at the beginning of each trimester.

The languages in which the instruction is given are English, French, Italian and Dutch.

Introductory Trimester

For those who are not yet sure whether the Programme for a whole year is suitable for them, we offer a trial period of three months, after which the student can decide whether or not to continue.

Short-Term Programme

This programme is for those who do not have the opportunity to participate in the Three-Year Atelier Programme. The bespoke content of their Programme is put together in consultation with Joke Frima, the course director, depending on personal circumstances and ability.

The part-time programme consists of at least three months and the same applies to the Introductory trimester.

Fulltime Programme

After successful completion of the full-time curriculum, a Diploma Certificate will be awarded.
