As a freelancer, I often work solo from my home office and there are times when I really need to get out and spend time with fellow creatives. I always feel so refreshed after spending time in this quiet, calm work environment.

Learning Environment

I've been looking for a place to take some drawing classes, and I am so happy I found Cura Studios. Carolin is a fantastic teacher who will be by your side every step of the way and provide the encouragement and tips to take your skills to the next level. Whether you've been an artist your whole life, or are just now discovering the joys of creating art, Cura is a great place to learn, grow, and make new friends.

-Dan Finkelstein

Learning Environment

Carolin’s classes are filled with much more than the average art class material. She teaches with intuitive direction, making it easy to comprehend the fundamentals and other important techniques. 

I’ve experienced three separate art schools and wholeheartedly enjoy how she approaches creating art. Thank you for giving my skills the boost of self-confidence they needed.
