The full annual program of the basic year consists of 6 modules, each containing approx. 6 lessons – 38 lessons a year altogether. You can enrol with just 3 modules per half year. The lessons are given by various art teachers in predetermined modules.
Every half year a new season starts in early February and again in mid-September.
The foundation year is suited for beginners or those wishing to follow a proper refreshment course. In the years’ course all the basics of drawing and painting will be offered. You will be taught by different teachers – each in a module of 6 lessons – who teach image aspects such as form, composition, colour, space, shape, and the human figure.
After the foundation year, you can follow the follow up year or take one of the other courses.
Those solely interested in drawing or painting with a model could start straight away with the course ‘Drawing’ or ‘Model & Portrait’ or ‘Mix of techniques’ under the guidance of one art teacher. You can follow these courses several times.
