BACHEL'ART

DRAWING & PAINTING

YEARS 2 & 3

The Bachel’art is the flagship degree offered by the Paris Academy of Art.

The degree is conferred after three years of study, including rigorous academic coursework and intensive studio experience. Students are guided in the cultivation of technical knowledge and the refinement of visual skills.

A small student-faculty ratio ensures that students receive maximum attention and one-on-one instruction.

  • PAINTING & DRAWING FROM LIVE MODELS LONG POSE

    12 h par semaine

     

    Painting from live models is one of the programme’s main classes. This is where all the other subjects taught are brought together. By deepening their artistic exploration and the expression of their feelings, students must find a way of making reality their own and rendering it as faithfully as possible.

     

    OBJECTIVE

    Long poses (50 to 60 hours) allow for comprehensive observation and analysis. Students deepen their drawing both in terms of measurements and proportions as well as in terms of their ability to capture the model in three dimensions and to bring their drawing to life by using light and values.

  • PAINTING & DRAWING FROM CAST

    12 h par semaine

     

    This is a class where students develop their ability to analyse and observe forms, first in two dimensions by producing copies (the so-called Bargues method) and then in three dimensions by studying casts based on ancient or classical statuary. They acquire sound fundamentals for drawing and painting—measurements, analysis and observation—and become aware of the observation needed to transmit the complexity of the model in all of its elements (light, form, material).

     

    OBJECTIVE

    Through observation, students must comprehend how complex reality really is—form, materials, light, etc.—as well as develop their own sensitivities and strengthen their capacity for analysis and perception.

    Artistic anatomy is studied theoretically through the use of printed drawings or photographs, skeletons and écorchés; it is also studied in practice by drawing body parts directly from live models.

  • STILL LIFE

    12 h par semaine

     

    Studying still lifes is essential to further one’s study of colour, texture and three-di- mensional space. In the third year, a more extensive palette is introduced, and students gradually learn to create specific colours by choosing the correct pig- ments. In-depth work allows them to obtain the desired textures and effects. Par- ticular focus is placed on arranging the parts of the still life in order to teach the rules of composition. During the third year, students will carry out a progressive series of four or six projects, taking on the following themes: bright red drape- ry (the most difficult colour to paint), white glazed ceramics, writing, perishable goods and chiaroscuro.

     

  • ARTISTIC ANATOMY (Optional)

    3 h par semaine

     

    Artistic anatomy is studied theoretically through the use of printed drawings or photographs, skeletons and écorchés; it is also studied in practice by drawing body parts directly from live models.

     

     

    OBJECTIVE

    This is an important class that allows students to understand and analyse movement and the structure of the human body, which is essential when drawing from a live model. This is an invaluable class and helps establish a foundation for drawing classes.

  • PORTRAIT (Optional)

    3 h par semaine

     

    Portraiture is a type of drawing from live models that aims to reproduce a person’s face by capturing their likeness as closely as possible.

     

    OBJECTIVE

    Portraits, by their complex structure and need to portray a likeness, are an excellent way to develop one’s drawing technique. Proportions, volume and values are all studied in depth when a portrait is produced.

  • SKETCHES OF LIVE MODELS SHORT POSE (Optional

    3 h par semaine

     

    Sketching from live models is a vital step for students to become aware of proportions and movement. Rapidly and faithfully capturing the model’s proportions, tensions and values is what provides a drawing with its expressivity. This favours the creation of effective style and graphic originality.

     

    OBJECTIVE

    This quick sketching develops students’ observational skills and understanding of the model and allows them to understand notions of anatomy. Students must be able to quickly produce a harmonious sketch with realistic proportions in a set amount of time and must also display a certain sensitivity in their rendering.

Fridays will be dedicated to studying portraiture.

At the end of this summer school a jury will be held to discuss and comment upon students’ work.

 

15 places are available for each workshops. Teaching is conducted in English and students are expected to have a working knowledge of the language.
