Offering workshops taught by artists since 2011.
Our focus is on drawing and painting, based in the belief that
everyone can learn how to draw!
Starting January 1, 2019 we are required to add 19% VAT to all workshop prices. We do everything we can to keep our prices at a range that is accessible, but this is something we cannot avoid. What we earn from the workshops, which covers the fees of our internationally recognized artist-instructors, the studio in Kreuzberg, and numerous other costs, will stay the same. The entire price increase goes directly to the Finanzamt. So for the sake of transparency, that is the situation. If you pay for a workshop that takes place in 2019 before the end of 2018, you will pay the old price!

There are a lot of ways to make a print. Some people are seduced by the glossy speed of pulling an ink-charged squeegee across a silkscreen. Others prefer tooling away at sheets of copper destined for an acid bath. I, for one, have always been a sucker for the linocut.
