The School offers various programs for children as young as 4 and as old as 17, in addition to watercolor, acrylic painting,sketching and drawing classes for adults, and hand-rendering classes for professional architect and designers.  The courses aim at providing fundamental art education to young and already practicing artists while integrating it into a fine-tuned creative process.  We developed the programs which are appropriate for each age group as well as the programs for professional architects and designers targeted to improve their hand-rendering abilities.

Painting classes  focus on studying various application techniques, understanding of composition and light distribution. These programs include painting still-life compositions from observation and landscape studies.
