PAINTING SCHOOL FOR ADULTS IN MADRID
The BLAK School Youth / Adult Workshop offers painting, drawing and modeling classes for students from 11-12 years old to 99 or older.
It is also that place where you can socialize, relax, forget about your routines and day-to-day problems; where to find a space to dedicate yourself to yourself and what you like; where you can discover the true power that art has to make us grow personally and intellectually.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN IN OUR CLASSES?
We work in the exciting world of drawing, painting and modeling; but above all trying to facilitate the encounter with ART and the possibility of developing and enhancing CREATIVITY.
- We work with all techniques: pencil, charcoal, sanguine, pastel, watercolor, oil, acrylic and mixed techniques
- We work with all styles: realism, figuration, abstraction, and, the most important, your own that you will develop over time.
- We also work on modeling as a way of understanding volume and space.
It does not matter what level you have, if you have done something before or not. We put ourselves in the shoes of each student and we try from wherever they are to start walking with them, giving them resources, techniques, ideas, suggestions, practical and theoretical examples, and always positive encouragement, making them see that everything is possible, that everything is achieved and that this creative process is well worth it.
We have classes in morning and afternoon shifts.
In the mornings from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
In the afternoons from Monday to Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Among all these hours, the most convenient shift is chosen and we try to keep it, although we are very flexible, classes can be changed and made up.
We also adapt to difficult work shifts. In short, the schedule is not a problem and we make it easy for you.
We only close the month of August, one week at Christmas and holidays.
