Artworks and story from Lis Engel

A am a painter

I was always attracted to drawing and painting but did not get the possibility of getting a formal art education, but it did not stop my interest.

My first art experience was my admiration for The Danish drawer Christel and when I was a child I started copying her drawings from journals. At 12 years of age an art dealer, a friend of my family introduced me to Oil painting and I loved The color and started painting landscapes from Bornholm. Here I met The Danish painter Oluf Høst who became a great inspiration for me.

My interest in all kinds of art forms were very open, I was very attracted by music and modern compositional music and contemporary dance and performance art.

Artworks and story from Lis Engel

I finished my University Education and a PhD in body mind arts and sciences and became an associate professor at The University of Copenhagen in Body, Movement and Aesthetics. But all the time I was painting and drawing but still with no formal Education.

In my search I was so happy to find the Drawing Academy course and I have followed it very enthusiastically and learned a lot about classical drawing – both quite concretely about many possibilities of materials but also about techniques that I did not know but find very beautiful and attractive as silverpoint drawing.

My story of drawing is quite wild – I copied Christel, I experimented and met somatic drawing during my dance studies in New York and Seattle and I have looked at many drawing at museums and art exhibitions, and studied drawing from books and now been so lucky to find this wonderfully Drawing Academy.

I like The form very much and think that I have already learned a lot and I know that I will continue to go back and deepen my experience with drawing.

I am so grateful that I did find this drawing course and I know that it will change my way of drawing.
