From Sketch to Painting at Sabanci University Campus, Tuzla. 2015



From Sketch to Painting 2015

As a ritual of Sabanci University, Visual Arts and Visual Communication
design students, taking VA 204 Language of Drawing II and VA 324 Advanced
Drawing, are exhibiting their works on FASS. In these two important courses
given by Wieslaw Zaremba, students use both modern and traditional

In both of these courses students, aim is to create compositions inspired
by their memories and dreams, so they create their compositions with their
own drawing styles accordingly. During their processes of drawing, they
observe real models, objects and textures.Since anatomical analysis of live
models are severely important for their works, they also reflect the
photographs of the models on their canvases.Also in VA 204 they observe
their own photographs and draw their self portraits with the same methods.

After sketching the first drafts of their works, students continue with
water colour for outlining and later on they use ink,dry pastels and
acrylic paint.Apart from the appreciated realistic styles, creative and
experimental styles in drawing are also welcomed in these courses.

So it can be said that there are no limitations for the students.

In these courses, talent and experience are not compulsory.The only motto
is to work hard and experiment. Even the students who have no painting
background at all can create masterpieces.It proves that, practice and
working hard can compensate the lack of experience and talent.Also, since
the timing is really important in these courses, students become more
ambitious to be on time and with their hard work to achieve their goal they
get experienced during the process of the works.
