6 - 13 September 2020

Course description

This course is suitable for both advanced as well as for brave beginners with basic drawing skills.

To be able to draw a person so that the drawing really corresponds to their essence, is a delightful experience for both the artist and model.

To help you on your path to this experience, I will show you a variety of approaches.

Via special exercises, I will individually accompany you so that you can learn more and more to trust your own perception and your drawing hand.


We work 5 days:

  • in the morning from 10 a.m. approx. 3 hours and
  • in the evening before dinner, approx. 1.5 to 2 hours, or after mutual agreement.

In between there is time and space to enjoy this magical place: dangle in a hammock, take a short trip, refresh yourself in the nearby bathing lake …

One day is free, with the possibility of taking part in an organized excursion to the sound artist Peter Treichler ( spaziosonoro.ch ) near Assisi.


Course: 400 euros including model fee and material
(Please bring your favorite drawing materials with you)

Accommodation with full board: 400 euros



You live in a single room in a tasteful atmosphere.
(See information and photos on the casa-simoncelli website.)
