Thank you!


  1. I just loved the Mixed Media workshop! Mira gave us a thrilling new topic each week to work on. There was lots of room to experiment and to develop our own artistic thinking and skills. She was really helpful and always kind and made me draw and paint things I never thought I could. The general atmosphere of the workshop was also really great. I couldn't have wished for a better teacher to stat drawing and painting. Cannoz wait for Mixed Media part II! :)

  2. My second workshop after painting, and I enjoyed both of them so much. Wonderful group of people, and I really like the balance in the class of instruction, looking at other paintings for inspiration, and working on our own projects. The assignments themselves are also thought provoking and meaningful, and it is always fascinating to see how different each work is, though we start with the same framework of the assignment. I'm really looking forward to continuing in the fall!

  3. It was a fantastic workshop!! I enjoyed every assignment, we were able to get our hands on a wide variety of media and develop our creativity and artistic skills. I also learned a lot about art movements that I didn't know before and that I found really inspiring. Both Mira's advice and structure of the classes was wise and useful. I'm really happy I chose to take this workshop and would strongly recommended to any art-lover, no matter the level or experience.

  5. It is a very interesting experience were you push yourself to create an art piece, even from everyday objects, reaching surprising results. Mira O'Brien is a very talented with a lot experience that will help you to think about others artistic point of view.
    I'm already looking forward for the next workshop at Berlin Drawing Room.

  6. I truly enjoyed every part of the workshop! The combination of simple assignments with short readings on historical backgrounds and contemporary art, and discussions through all classes, almost automatically lead to creating and understanding the process of developing more complex projects, and eventually our final project.
