Programme

Hello and thank you for visiting “art CLASS”.

 

We offer Drawing and Painting Course suitable for all levels.  Various projects are explored on different level of abilities, using a range of disciplines and materials – studio set up, thematic projects, mixed media, etc.

“art CLASS” provides a thorough basis for understanding all drawing and painting elements and principles. Detailed information given on materials and techniques. Students can further develop methods of visual expression and are encouraged to develop a portfolio of work.

Following Joseph Beuys’ moto – “Every human being is an artist” – The ultimate aim of Art Class is to inspire students to realise their full creative potential and make them into artists. Many of our students have taken this path. Some went into a higher education and some now do their practice independently and successfully.
