We offer schools, educational institutes, colleges, universities and teachers a large range of services including/excluding studio work. We offer many, thematically focused courses that relate to curricula and foster the personal development of the pupils and students. In terms of methodology, we prioritize dialog and interaction, and customize offerings to the participants’ specific needs, ages and grades. No prior knowledge is required. We practice learning how to view pictures taking selected original works as examples and round this out with information on art and social history. Alongside conversations on the artworks, we also resort to other expressive forms such as play acting, sketches, pieces of music, photographs and films.

Looking at a set of paintings, the students will be encouraged to use their English to name the colors they see and where these colors are found in the picture as a playful way to review and internalize vocabulary they have learnt at school. Lively discussion will be encouraged by asking them to say what certain colors make them think of—e.g., blue = water—and what colors make us feel—e.g., blue = cold. To help students speak freely, both German and English will be used at this stage.
Through dialogues and games, students will review their vocabulary and learn new English words to describe colors and the things they see in paintings.

Focusing on selected portraits, the students will be asked to describe what they see in English in order to review vocabulary they have learnt in school. To encourage lively dialogue, the group can discuss what they think the artists are trying to tell us about the people in the paintings. Although students will be encouraged to work with the English they know, German may also be spoken to allow them to express themselves more freely.
The conversation will be enhanced by games involving the English language to help students to practice their English and consolidate their command of it while picking up some new words along the way. This stage may subsequently be extended back in the classroom.
