STATE-APPROVED

Hybrid Program

Our hybrid program combines the two study programs of state-approved sculptor and state-approved painter. In 4.5 years, you will learn all the important aspects of both programs and at the end you will have both titles in your pocket.

 

In this full-time study program we teach you the techniques, where you will learn the most important basics of realistic drawing, painting and modeling so that you can later have more flexibility and develop your own personal style. The success of our teaching program originates from its clear and organised structure. Each piece of work builds on the previous one. This way you deepen what you have learned and develop further step by step. Therefore, anyone can start without any previous knowledge.

In addition to the basic craft skills, you will also find many additional teaching modules such as anatomy, material science, art history and art business. Our main concern is to prepare you for your dream job and give you opportunities to earn money in the art world.
