The Da Vinci Initiative is proud to introduce a new online Bargue Drawing course titled Charles Bargue in the 21st Century. This course takes you from start to finish in creating a drawing from a 19th century Bargue plate. Two history segments by Kara Lysadra Ross are also included. Videos for the 28 part course are being released one each week for free on YouTube via the DVI YouTube channel.
The DVI is using Patreon, a subscription service, and the sale of the course though its website, to finance the expense of producing high-quality video courses in order to provide broader access to training for students who are eager to learn atelier skills. Your patronage ensures that all students have access to this essential knowledge.
Patreon and purchasers through DVI will gain access to additional tips and tricks videos with additional educational footage. Patreon subscribers will also gain access to the weekly footage one day in advance of the general public, or the entire course with additional footage can be purchased in totality now through DVI by clicking here.
To see the first four videos in this course, please visit Patreon to subscribe, or come to the DVI YouTube channel for the free footage.
Recently, DVI ambassador Camilla Haneberg travelled to the Louisiana Art Education Association conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Camilla taught a variety of atelier drawing skills to workshop participants, including finding proportions, using an envelope, and carefully observing drawing subjects.
Camilla also introduced the Charles Bargue Drawing Course to participants, which is one of the first formal drawing programs ever created. (DVI recently released a brand new online drawing course that gives step-by-step instruction on how to learn drawing skills from Bargue Plates.)
The Da Vinci Initiative is honored to provide skill-based training for Louisiana's art teachers, and look forward to visiting many more states this fall conference season!
