The Berlin Drawing Room was founded in 2011 when Mira O'Brien decided to offer the first Drawing Workshop. Since then, the offerings have expanded to include a variety of workshops with a focus on drawing and painting. We continue to branch out by collaborating with other organizations, such as the Prinzessinnengarten, and bringing additional artists into our team.
We believe that the experience of hands-on creation should be accessible to anyone and that drawing is not a skill reserved for art making but is an essential part of communication and perceiving the world.
Is previous experience required to attend a workshop?
No! Most of the workshops are geared towards beginners and aim to provide a solid foundation as well as some new techniques and tricks for the more experienced.
What is the language of instruction at the Berlin Drawing Room?
The main language of the Berlin Drawing Room is English, however communication in German is also possible.
What if I miss a class?
It is possible to attend the class you missed the next time the workshop is offered or to attend a class in another workshop, dependent on if there is space in the class. Please inquire.
Are workshop fees refundable?
If you sign up for a workshop and then realize that you will not be able to attend, we can refund the workshop fee (minus any transaction fees) up to four weeks before the start date. After the four week cut off, or after a workshop has started, no refund is possible. Under certain circumstances, BDR credit can be issued. Please inquire.
