In our one-year additional qualification in Digital Artist, we combine tradition with modernity. In our state-approved study program to become a painter and sculptor, our students learn a solid craft in a classical or analogue way, which makes them artistically strong. Learning digital programs is enormously helpful for more career opportunities and building an art portfolio.

This additional qualification is only possible for graduates of our two training courses or for external graduates of other classical art academies.


In this program, students learn to create compositions and images from their imagination. They have an idea in mind and learn how to visualize it. They work with programs such as Photoshop or Procreate. The curriculum also includes important programs for three-dimensional design (Maya, Zbrush, Blender,...), which are mainly used in the film and gaming industry.
