You will begin by getting to know Puño, his professional career and some of his influences related to this course. Next, you will make a tour of the materials that you will use to complete the exercises of this course.

Now yes: we begin. To know how to draw, you have to know how to think. Puño will give you a good number of dynamics to stimulate creativity and look at reality in another way. The key to being a great artist is observation!

In the next unit, it will be time to sharpen your pencils. Puño will propose a series of drawing exercises to explore different worlds, from the gestural and corporal expression to the construction of drawings with geometric figures. Remember: your drawings do not have to look like things, but how we see things.

You will practice with some exercises to make contact with the materials, acquire manual skills and understand the dedication time that each project needs.

You will use colored papers to experiment with the interaction between them. Then, you will photograph real household objects to build abstract landscapes. And finally, you will learn to make drawings printed with several different colors using EVA rubber and color tempera.

What is this course's project?

At the end of the course, you will assemble an exhibition of your artistic work in your home or school using the results of each of the exercises that you will develop throughout the lessons.
