The guarantee of a good quality of educated tutors is a must, we put an emphasis on their individual artworks, character and personal experiences. All of our lectures are emphatic, intelligent with friendly and positive attitude. We believe that the relationship between the teacher and the child is very important and we build on that. We have realized one very important element and that is when a child feels relaxed, comfortable and has a teacher whom he/she can trust, the creativity awakens and the child enjoys the process very much.
The character of each subject and course differs according to each teacher‘s personality. All of our teachers are very special and each of them has an amazing personality and character, therefore the time spent by their side can be educational as well as inspirational.

We try to use a relaxed way of teaching where we paint for fun where at the same time the child is playing and is having fun and he/she is learning the techniques and styles in an unpushing way. From our long experiences, we know that teaching the youngest needs to be set differently, therefore the teachers try to engage them very gently and emphatically into the game and each child has a personal and individual approach.
The educational program originates from the principle of a classic academic understanding of the tuition of the art, drawing, and painting. We pay a special focus on the kids getting in touch with the classic themes as the still life (perspective, proportions, composition, shading, hatching), architectural drawing of a space (understanding and expressing of the space), portrait and figural drawing. Gradually we deal with the painting (theory, mixing and applying the paints), we work on the kids’ ability to deepen their sensing of the colors and shapes so they can easily work on their own artworks.
The presence of parents is optional. During the first lesson, the child develops a trust and feels comfortable in the environment. We even discuss the progress with the parents and kids.
We encourage an individual creativity in each child, we help him/her to discover their hidden potential so they could make a conscious choice in the future. We prepare kids for talent exams as well, when they want to apply for art schools. 75 % of our students are successful at admission talent exams.
