Start with discipline
January at Metàfora started with a bit of discipline during the Academic Drawing and Painting class run by Ananu and Piotr. Examining the figure, geometric shapes, still life and tonal variations was a tiring process because of the exactitude and concentration required. Both tutors used this as an opportunity to show how we can use these skills within our own unique styles while giving us a foundation in basic techniques. We felt a little more prepared and grounded as we launch into the wider world of concept over the coming semester.
