"Regardless of one's experience as a painter, I would highly recommend a day with Eoin. He definitely has the ability to teach from the ground up and sense where his advice can be tailored to the particular needs of a student. I have learned many valuable lessons. I am excited to get back to my own studio to put them into practice."
-S. Dureau, professional artist, Australia
Individual students and artists
We offer studio sessions and Skype sessions of private instruction in either painting or drawing. Each session is based on the particular interests and goals of the individual. Past clients have requested sessions for a crash course in oil painting and/or drawing, or to find answers to technical questions, master particular techniques and styles, or work through creative blocks.
Sessions are ideal for people visiting Berlin for a short-period, or for beginners/students seeking to develop skills quickly to meet professional or academic goals. For clients living outside of Berlin, please note that we can arrange for your painted canvases to be delivered to your home country once dry with the postal company of your choice.
This service is also used by practising artists to expand their skill base and material knowledge with the aim of pushing their practice to a new level. The artist’s current work is used as a platform to discuss their themes, styles and intentions, and then we study directly from key works of other artists to understand technique and how to best combine with the client's present practice. This can include understanding the palette of a particular painter, color combinations, layering in painting and the direct copying of drawing and paintings in the style you wish to explore.
Following 1-1s we advise clients to join the studio sessions on Tuesday nights, and Wednesday / Saturdays 10-4 to continue their study in their chosen area. These classes can be joined at anytime and fitted to your own schedule. Students interested in ongoing study with Berlin Art Class can also read more about our various syllabi here.
