welcome to dara
The Dutch Atelier of Realist Art is a private art studio in Haarlem for artists seeking to achieve a high level of ability in representational drawing and painting. Our motto, "technique before style," reflects our philosophy that a proper art education is one that is based around the development of objective technical skills and excellent draftsmanship. Like learning a new language, technical skill is the essential vocabulary that every artist needs in order to successfully express his or her creative vision.
COVID-19 UPDATE: As of 1 June 2020, DARA has re-opened to students and visitors. Please note that all visitors must comply with certain conditions before entering the building, in accordance with health and safety measures set by the Dutch authorities.
