Workshops offered by DARA are short & intensive courses that cover a variety of drawing and painting disciplines. Most of our workshops consist of 18 to 30 hours of instruction (though we do offer some longer courses as well), and are led by professional artists who are classically trained in figurative drawing and painting.
Why take a workshop? Workshops offer a unique opportunity for specialized, intensive, and highly personalized study to develop your personal drawing or painting practice further. We are deeply honored to invite renowned artists from all around the world to teach in our studio in Haarlem.
Why choose DARA? All our workshops & visiting instructors promote DARA's core philosophy of achieving technical excellence in drawing/painting from nature. We limit our class sizes to ensure a high level of personal attention, and we are proud of the high-quality education our workshops provide. Our intimate studio space provides a warm, friendly environment where you will feel right at home, complete with carefully prepared homemade meals served daily.
