Our study program to become a state-approved sculptor can be completed full-time or part-time and forms the basis of a realistic, figurative sculptor.


In this full-time study program we teach you the techniques, where you will learn the most important basics of realistic drawing and modelling with clay so that you can later develop your own 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 strengthen 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 main focus is to prepare you for your dream job and give you opportunities to earn money in the art world.
