Lisbon's Ruins

  • LOCATION: Largo do Carmo

In our workshop we will visit the Archaeological Museum of Carmo and draw the ruins or  the remains of ancient times. Working as a team of instructors, Clara  and Guida,  we intend to give some ideas of our own methodolgies of drawing and work, in contrasting and complementary styles. We will make reference to different drawing approaches, through some group exercices which will afterwards inform the individual practice.

No nosso workshop pretendemos desenhar as Ruinas do Carmo e Fragmentos, entrando no Museu Arqueológico do Carmo. Trabalhando como equipa de instrutores, Clara e Guida, iremos informar acerca das nossas metodologias de trabalho, e propôr o uso de estilos contrastantes. Faremos diferentes abordagens ao desenho, começando por um exercicio de grupo onde exploraremos estes contrastes, e depois partiremos para um desenho individual informado por esta experiência inicial.
