COURSES

Weekly, in-depth visual art classes

Your Art-explorations

Paint It Easy Courses are designed for a wide range of art enthusiasts from complete beginners to the more experienced hobbyists.

We have created 3 coherent course types, 3 essential stages to pave your way from your very first steps in visual arts to your future self, who enjoys and is capable to express her/himself artistically. The three steps are:

Learn - If you consider yourself a complete beginner we recommend you to start out with a low treshold beginner course. These teach you the fundamentals of the given subject.
Practice - Our study group is an ideal platform to deepen your experience and push your skills further by practicing what you’ve learned at a beginner or thematic course (or anywhere else).
Expand - Thematic courses are designed to teach specific topics through a clearly identifiable theme. Intended to build upon and expand already existing knowledge. However, some might not require prior experience.

If you are a beginner looking to improve your skills, these art courses are for you. Each subject is divided into two modules, with the first covering the basics and the second building on that foundation.

In Module I, you will gain hands-on experience with art tools and mediums, as well as a basic understanding of forms, perspective, light, and shadow. Module II builds on that foundation, reinforcing what you learned in the first module and teaching new techniques for controlling tones, composition, and refining acquired skills.

By the end of both modules, you will have a solid foundation in art fundamentals and be ready to move on to more complex thematic courses.
