Life Drawing

Have a look at the spacious drawing room at Lette Verein and watch the students draw garments draped on two dress forms. For the lessons the easels are usually arranged around a low pedestal, presenting the objects or life models in selected outfits.

Each student works at an easel and is allowed to move in the room and arrange it to find the most suitable drawing perspective.

Students are taught in life drawing throughout their three year education. In these lessons, they learn how to compose and draw male and female life models in different poses and different types of clothing.

By starting with basic drawing exercises and moving on to artistic studies in different materials, the students develop their very personal drawing style. This is a solid starting point for using these skills when illustrating their fashion ideas in a contemporary and edgy look!

Besides students who are encouraged to pose for each other, Irène and Stefan are two of the favourite life models who are frequently booked by the lecturers. Both have become very familiar with the students and assist very professionally in choosing fashionable clothing combinations and finding interesting fashion poses for the students to draw.
