Full immersion

We don’t only teach you to follow a pattern or copy a piece, we teach you to think like an artist. We show you how to see the beauty in line and form, to express the mood of the picture, to call and direct the viewer’s attention and to carry the work from an idea to painting.


The lessons of the courses are built from “simple to complex” and in each subsequent lesson you will use and combine knowledge and skills gained in the previous one. This allows you to build a solid basis and achieve independence in painting.
