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 13.10.2020: The DARA studio is open for in-house classes for small numbers of students. To ensure that our classes are conducted safely and responsibly, there are strict health and safety measures in place that all students, instructors, and other visitors must comply with when entering the building.
