The easy start if you want to learn with us. The basis for all our other drawing and painting classes – Not only for beginners!

This is our introduction workshop where you will learn the basics for drawing but also for painting. How to see the form, abstract and bring it to paper. How to measure your subject or model, render your drawing and how to define edges. There is always an instructor present to help you. The assignments can be adapted to your skill level. We mainly use charcoal in our drawing classes because it is a flexible and quick medium.

This workshop is not only beginners, it is the basis for all our other classes – also painting. The goal of this workshop is not to take home a nice drawing, but to learn new tools, so you can deepen your skills in further studies on your own or with more classes. For example another one of our drawing or painting classes.

We recommend to take it prior to all other classes we offer. For a convenient start we will provide the materials for this class.
