Our study program to become a state-approved artist can be completed full-time or part-time and provides the basis of a realistic, figuratively working artist.

In this academic program we teach you the art techniques, which means you learn the important basics of realistic drawing and painting in order to be able to create your own style in the future.

The success of our teaching programme mainly relates to the organised and clear structure. Each piece of work builds on the previous one. This way you deepen what you have learned and progress step by step. Therefore, anyone can start, even without prior knowledge.

In addition to the basics of profession, you will also find many additional teaching modules such as anatomy, material science, art history and art business. Our greatest concern is to make you fit for your dream job and give you opportunities to earn money in the art world.
