“How do we learn to be creative? Or to solve problems in a creative way? Often this is attributed to inspiration, a force we assume we have no control over; but it turns out there is a lot we can do to put ourselves into the right frame of mind. During a private workshop your group will learn exercises designed to tap into the creative flow.”

G Caruso

“I love G's way of explaining things, every notion gets to a level deeper than just mental understanding, which is where they are actually assimilated and and transformed into independent actions."

"G's biggest strength is in the ability to recognise strengths and weaknesses of the students and encourage them to overcome them without creating frustration. Helping them at the same time to find the expressive method more attuned to their own attitudes and beings."

Contemporary Art Tour

Our artist-instructors are Berlin art world insiders. Book a custom art gallery tour in order to explore the vibrant contemporary art scene that Berlin is internationally renowned for. We can also combine visiting galleries with artist studio visits, a unique opportunity to see works in progress and ask the artist direct questions about their process.

The course about anatomy with G was great! It’s amazing how much you can learn in such a short time and G is a very precise and nice instructor. Thank you for that!

I really recommend these classes to open minded people. Here you will learn basics or enhance your already established skills in a non academic way. You can always grab a book and learn about how you “should” draw lights and shadows, but this is different. This is about approaching reality, breaking through your “standards” and creating something that, sometimes surprisingly, is always definitely interesting. If you are not afraid of what can get out of your pencil when you let it go, just come to this workshop: it is the right place for you!

Simone Brizzi (Drawing Workshop, 2013)

I wanted to learn how to draw comics or create a graphic novel. Books and classes I found and did so far, had quite a conventional approach. When I found Ali’s course, I had the feeling this is a bit different from the others. I wasn’t sure at the beginning, if it would be worth to book all 5 classes at once, but I absolutely didn’t regret that I did. Over 5 months I participated nearly every week in the online class. Ali offered a nice mix of warm up exercised, theoretical input, feedback, answering questions, sharing own experiences and several drawing exercises. She encouraged the participants to create and stick with a character. Since the course happened over a long period and I got feedback and input every week, it was possible to get into a process and develop something. I didn’t had any specific in mind, but over the time I created a wolf character, who is now part of several comics I’ve made and still make. I also liked Ali’s political awareness and openness. I didn’t have a favourite exercise, but I liked a lot, that we started with a short warm up, did another longer exercise and did a long exercise in the end of each class.

G Caruso’s watercolor workshop was excellent and my first online art workshop. I hadn’t worked with watercolor for many years and I was able to refresh my memory and learn new techniques each week. Each session was recorded on dropbox so I was able to reinforce my learning. Each participant was able to upload their projects and get positive feedback and suggestions. G is an organized, very experienced water-colorist and teacher who shares her passion for the medium. She cares about each student and their progress. The sense of community that developed was such a treat. I live in the USA and worked from my studio. There were students from four other countries. I signed up for another class immediately and hope online classes will continue to be offered.

Norma Bradley (Sketchbook Practice Workshop, 2020)

I took the Spring 2013 Drawing Workshop and can highly recommend it. This is a great class for learning to observe and draw in a structured, yet playful and creative way. I was familiar with some of the ideas from Betty Edwards ‘Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain’, and I also met many new exercises and ways of approaching drawing. Mira is a gentle and supportive teacher, at the same time she is always stretching her students to try different methods and get beyond their self-imposed limits. By the end of the class, I noticed that my drawing had improved in ways that I hadn’t even realised!
