Drawing and painting are among the oldest forms of artistic expression we know. They offer room for personal expression and bring creativity to life. You really do not need to have a special talent; everyone can turn into an artist simply by practising!

During the course Drawing and Painting: Basics, you will learn drawing and painting techniques related to various movements in art such as Impressionism, Surrealism and Expressionism. You will also have the freedom to experiment with all sorts of materials, such as acrylic paints, ecoline, ink, charcoal and pencil. By the end of the course you will have learned how to work with these materials and you will know more about theoretical and practical skills, such as composition, colour and expression.
