About us

In our studio we welcome all those interested in learning drawing, painting and other artistic techniques. We accept students from preschool children to the visitors of courses in drawing and painting for adults.

The course paintings and drawings are individually adapted. The courses can be channeled from relaxation to intense artistic preparation for entrance exams for middle and high schools.

We are a non-profit organization called ‘Malování a kreslení, z. s.’, founded in 2010 and based on previous long –term professional experience of the founding members. We are visual artists, teachers, architects, designers... Our mission is to support art culture and to aid access of the general public to fine art. We are a group of art enthusiasts whose aim is to provide a platform for approaching the visual arts and the many aspects of contemporary culture to children, youngsters, adults and seniors.

“Our studio” has had branches across the Czech Republic since 2010. In 2014, we founded ‘Nová galerie’, a gallery where we hold exhibitions, and in 2015, we opened the arts centre ‘Centrum Amudarja’, which has gradually become a meeting place for art lovers.

Our members range from school children to attendees of drawing and painting courses for adults and seniors. Approximately 750-800 members visit our school every week. Meetings take place in art studios across the Czech Republic (Prague, Brno, Ostrava, Pardubice, Zlín, Slaný...)  and take on the form of regular two-hour lessons or several-day workshops and seminars.

We organize various art courses for our members ranging from classical drawing and painting classes to en plein air painting, oil painting, watercolour painting, evening drawing, painting on silk, computer graphics, screenwriting, stage design and the basics of film making... For the youngest, we organize creative summer camps and for the older ones painting workshops, symposiums and en plein air painting events. Our teachers’ team also offers the possibility to prepare students for entrance exams for art, architecture and design schools.

If you feel like learning to paint, become a member of the ‘Malování a kreslení‘ studio!
We are all looking forward to meeting you,
The team and  Nina Mainerová, M.Arch.!
