“We like to inspire
people to get results”

We believe in active learning, to learn by doing. As everyone may need different advice in this, we deliberately keep the group size very small (3-6 persons).

This enables for an individual approach, and to set the workshop contents to connect with the work field of our participants.

Our studio offers various kinds of sketching courses, and in different time planning. See below what planning suits you best.
