Painting Courses: Weekly, in-depth visual art explorations
Line, tone, colour
Art classes weekly in English
We have been so excited by the interest shown by so many in taking up painting as a hobby, or something one would like to pursue in depth! Throughout many requests have we realized that from children to seniors, from the morning to after-work hours, from acrylic to oil, there is a clear call for painting courses in Basel, specially in English.
In the calendar only the starting date of the Basic and Thematic Courses and all the lessons of the Open Course is listed. PIE PASS holders must sign up here to secure their places for the upcoming art lessons of the Open Course.

These art courses run over 6 weeks. During the 2-hour-long classes we learn to handle the medium on different surfaces and we get into color theory, tonality, forms and perspective. We study in an entertaining atmosphere and we realize figurative or abstract images on beginners’ level.
THE OPEN COURSE
Open, as open level, this art course is divided into four blocks per year. Each block consists of 12 classes and evolves around a topic. The course is designed to provide students with a broad educational base, thus we work with different materials (acrylic, aquarell, charcoal, pencil, pastelcrayon, collage)
The courses focus on a particular genre or art theme and connect techniques, knowledge and different mediums in order to master the given subject. Each course consists of 4 classes and offers complex understanding and insider techniques into the abundant world of art.
with Various Artists
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. Start to (re)discover your creative side!
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.
We will not miss individual creation either: in the last class, you will create your own idea with the personal assistance of the teacher.
