Painting Classes at Freihand Art School

If you want to learn the art of painting, Freihand Art School is the right place for you. We offer painting classes for beginners as well as advanced students. In case you paint for the first time you will learn the fundamentals of painting and core techniques with simple to understand assignments. Advanced students will dive deeper in to technique and will paint from a life model.

We teach traditional oil techniques, but with modern methods. That way you can easily adapt your new skills to other mediums like acrylics gouache or digital. The principals and methods are always the same – the only difference lies in the technique of each medium.

As a start we recommend everyone to take our Fundamentals: Drawing class first. This drawing class will teach you the base for all other classes at our art school – also for painting. You cannot paint realistically without drawing!
