AB Art Studios is Vienna's art school for modern and contemporary fine art courses and workshops in the English language.

About AB Art Studios

AB Art Studios offers fine art courses and workshops for adults and teenagers. The studio specializes in oil painting and drawing, with regular workshops exposing students to new techniques and different materials. Instruction focuses on modern and contemporary approaches to art making, prioritizing expression, stylistic development and ideas over realism. However, a strong basis in the fundamentals of each material and technical aspects such as composition, rendering, mark-making, layering and color theory are taught to give students a strong technical foundation to build on. 


Classes are offered at every skill level, from complete beginner to advanced, in a studio environment that encourages creative exploration and experimentation. Students are encouraged to challenge their viewpoint of a subject and of art itself as they experiment with different approaches and explore artistic expression.


The primary language for courses and workshops is English, with German and/or other languages spoken depending on the course or workshop instructor
