Discovering the world of fine art.
We have prepared the first cycle of KOH-I-NOOR workshop which took place during 5 weeks in the center of Zagreb in Algoritam Profile Mozaik bookstore Megastore, Bogovićeva 7.
The workshops were divided into three basic groups: drawing, painting and creative workshops.
Drawing workshop during which we have tried the drawing program of Koh-I-Noor: graphite, charcoal, crayons and all kinds of pastels. Painting workshops where we have worked with painting program: watercolor, showers, tempera, oil paint and acrylic and finally creative workshop with very popular decoupage techniques.
The aim of the workshops was to inform all interested people with the proper use of KOH-I-NOOR material, possibilities and seemingly well-known techniques and introduce our guests with all the secrets of the great masters of painting.
Drawing - the use of graphite, charcoal and crayons.
At the first workshop we were introduced the short history of drawing, which dates back to the Paleolithic when people were drawing on the walls of caves using coal and the first primitive colors such as clay. The presented graphite products are the base of Koh-I-Noor tradition, the first graphite pen 1500 they produced back in 1790.
Popularity of drawings through the history has not declined and today, graphite products are one of the most widespread media in art. At the workshop, we have mastered the oldest drawing technique and with small drawing tricks we have learned to draw "Portraits".
