Drawing workshop

The third Sunday in May is dedicated to museums. For over 40 years, the International Council of Museums ICOM has proclaimed International Museum Day once a year to draw attention to museums in Germany and around the world. This is a great opportunity for visitors to discover the diversity of museums and to visit the Käthe Kollwitz Museum Berlin on May 21, 2023.

Käthe Kollwitz was a great drawer, graphic artist and sculptor. Discover her impressive works in the permanent exhibition and then try your hand at drawing yourself in our drawing workshop. Let her sculptures inspire you to draw!

Drawing is considered a basic prerequisite for any artistic activity. The focus of the course is on capturing a bronze by Käthe Kollwitz. The complexity of the body requires not only basic anatomical knowledge, but above all a strong spatial imagination, which we will work on together in this course. Furthermore, the topics of composition and image structure in drawing will be discussed together. The workshop is aimed at anyone who likes to draw, regardless of age. The only thing that counts is having fun and the desire to be creative.

Admission to the museum and participation in the drawing course is free on the occasion of International Museum Day.

Main topics:

  • Basics of the figure: proportion and anatomy
  • Simplification of the figure – sketchy representation
  • The figure in format: composition and image structure

Beginners and advanced learners are equally welcome.

Workshop time: 14.00 – 17.00
