Painting Courses & Workshops for adults

The Kuchlerhaus organizes ongoing workshops on various painting techniques such as acrylic, oil, watercolour and others. In the Hotglass Studio we paint glass with a special technique. All courses take place in our own studio. Competent artists from the local scene are invited as instructors. The course goal is always subject to a specific general theme, which you will find in the calendar of events. Of course, the joy of painting and creative activity is always in the foreground.

You can buy all utensils from us. We are sorted extensively.
