And finally it's summer. Summer means lots of sun, wind, open air, music, friends, park, bar-b-q, picnic, etc. Summer is very vibrant. colourful and bright. It is a perfect time to brush up your hobby, going around in the city and try to catch the city life through your beautiful sketches. Let us catch our wonderful memory in a unique way.
In this course, we will learn how to sketch a moving figure with a city vibe. It's all about trying to extract a beautiful composition from our surroundings. We will learn to watch human proportion, how they sit, talk eat and doing general activities. Or what about drawing your friends, while having an evening with them.
In this course, you will largely learn about how to compose figure and objects and relate them in the same frame. you will learn about interior & exterior perspective, line, shades, shadow, object, volume, quick rendering, depth of shading & depth of the object.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
KOU/ Kaustav is a Berlin-based Indian Artist, who is always trying to connect cultures and feelings in a certain storytelling way. The best thing about KOU‘s art is its a poetic narrative, as soon as you get closer to it, it‘s very much kinetic, experimental and reflects a deep thought of observation. His lines have life and lead the audience to look at it again and again and create a feeling of care inside them. Kaustav is a very sensitive person and he always tries to make his paintings with recycled and reused material. His live/ urban sketchings with Indian Postcards are a great example of „connecting cultures“.
Kaustav was born and brought up near Kolkata, West Bengal. His family was not very stable financially in the beginning and he says this was my great learning in life. Kaustav has been sketching and painting since he was a kid. He drew photorealistic live portrait at the age of 14. His work was highly appreciated by different people and publishers from Kolkata. He was working as a freelance illustrator in ABP, Kolkata. In 2011 Kaustav graduated in Architecture from Jadavpur University and in 2015 he finished his Masters in ‚Furniture & Interior Design‘ from NID India. Throughout this time he used to paint a lot, but never published.
From 2004 to 2014 Kaustav tried many different ways to express his paintings. Few have been exhibited later In Delhi and Kolkata. In 2014 Kaustav came to HTW Berlin as an exchange student, with full DAAD scholarship. He was appointed as a lecturer to teach design sketching to the students of Industrial Design and Fashion Design. During this time he became an active artist for „1000 Drawing Berlin“
Later on, He had 9 art exhibitions in different places in Germany. His art buyers and co-workers are highly affected by his influence and his thought for good society. His use of material, resources, reuse has always influenced people from different countries.
“He likes to experiment and is not afraid to fail. His fantasy doesn‘t seem to know any bounds” – Prof Johanna Michel. Edition Michel.
