Weekly, in-depth visual art classes
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.
- 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).
- 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.
Either you are an absolute beginner at visual arts, or you might have some experience and would like to systematize your knowledge, these Art Courses were tailored for you. Join us and learn in a community in a fun and entertaining way. After each course you will have experience with handling the tools, working with the medium and creating effects. You will have a basic understanding of forms and perspective, as well as light and shadow. You will be able to walk into an art supply store and consciously choose equipment and paint according to your needs.

The study group is intended to give an opportunity to solidify and push further your painting and drawing skills by a simple magic called regular practice. Therefore twice a week we set up exciting still life compositions and figure drawing poses for you to draw and paint. Like in a classical study group, a teacher is always present and walks through the class to give his/her assistance according to each student’s level and interest. The study group costs less and provide more freedom of expression since the long term goal is to support you to develop your own artistic voice.

Discover the path that leads you from a blank canvas to breathtaking fields. Italian artist Paolo Fratello takes you to this art-venture and teaches you the basics of oil painting. He guides you through the process of realising two stunning landscapes painted with the classical approach called glazing. We call it glazing, when a thin layer of paint is applied on top of your underpainting, resulting in rich, iridescent colours - an ideal way to create truly vibrant landscapes.

Drawing has less to do with skillful hands and more with how one sees the world. This course aims to teach you a different way to see the world. Drawing is a basis for everything. This is especially true for painting, where besides the physical mixing of colour and the tactile of the paint, everything else is drawn. The aim of this course is to teach you the fundamentals, which create a solid basis that can be further developed to any directions.
