We will meet at the foot of Saint Petronius Church in Piazza Maggiore, take a look at it from the outside to consider its impressive size, style and structure. Afterwards we will get inside, I will give you board, paper and pencils and we will find a strategic sitting point to do sketching. Well, this will not be copying of what we see. I will teach you to look and to think as a Gothic architect would have done, or as Leonardo da Vinci would have observed such a marvel of architecture. I will show you on paper through a sequence of sketches how to master perspective and incorporate the 3D imagination in your brain so you will learn not to depend on copying the optical illusion of distortion that often happens in photographs, where all the parallel vertical lines are going desperately oblique. We will do two perspectives, first you watch what I do and I explain to you the steps, than you do the same and I correct you when needed. Getting ahead with our process we will add characteristic details of the Gothic style and you will notice how they help the eye follow hypnotic circular guidelines. If we are lucky there will be some organ music playing. If we are more that 7 people we will get a radio device so everyone can hear me even if I am giving advice to one person at a time. When we are done we go to get a cup of hot tea or coffee and exchange insights in a bar nearby.
My name is Darya, I arrived in Bologna in 2016 after a flourishing artistic career as a graphic and painting artist in Urbino, native city of the great Renaissance artist Raffaello Sanzio. I am a professional artist with a degree in Fine Art. My art students often ask me to unveil the secret of the perspective in architectural drawings. For this purpose I have designed a special class on sketching that might seem less fun that watercolor, but its hypnotic effect is unbelievable and you will be surprised how your mindset changes in just two hours. The result will be that you will get a winning system to apply to your next drawings independently on the media that you use.

Plus de conseils
The basilica is a place of worship, food is not allowed. Consider these 2 hours as introspective drawing study, we'll talk softly and with due respect. There are chairs to sit. There is no restroom inside the church, we should organize before or after class, also because of the size of the church.
