The Atelier of Jirka Houska II. - Oil Painting, 7600 CZK

“Let´s start your painting with professional help from academic painter Jirka Houska.”

The Atelier of Jirka Houska II. - Oil Painting Course is a course designed for everybody who wants to start painting. The introductory lessons will be conceived as a lesson explaining all the basic information that is needed to know when it comes to oil paintings.

At the same time, we will talk about each other needs, what he wants to paint in the next lessons. Whether he prefers working on the carefully prepared still-life or the painting of his own objects. Whether he wants to paint using his own photos or make a copy of the picture´s detail, a fantasy theme or maybe abstraction. The goal is not to teach everybody the same, but on the contrary to help everyone in developing what is natural to him. Therefore the choice of themes is completely individual and the fact that everyone paints what he enjoys and what he is interested in is very important for us. It is also possible to paint several images, or just one more challenging during the whole semester. Nobody has to be afraid of turpentine´s smell because it is not necessary during painting; it is only used when washing. There is also non-sparkling turpentine which you can use if you want.

The course is led by MgA. Jirka Houska, who studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in the studio of prof. Zdeněk Beran. He is a painter with a wide range of genres, from realistic portraits and landscapes, through the reconstruction of mysterious animals to completely free fantasy paintings of elves or forest spirits. Because of that, he is able to help with the different preferences of the individual participants.
