Burnt Sienna Berlin is an art school founded in 2016 by visual artist Louise Thomas.

Burnt Sienna Art School Berlin was founded in 2016 at the now closed AGORA studios in Neukölln. It was originally an Art Club for local artists to get together and draw from a model. The school has moved to a beautiful attic space and has evolved into a rich community offering painting and drawing classes year round. Alongside the courses the studio offers regular life drawing sessions and studio time for artists.

The shared Burnt Sienna studio offers independent studio time to artists in Berlin. We have two working stations and all the basic materials included for oil painting.

In the spring of 2020 Burnt Sienna will introduce an international artist residency. The selected artists will work for a month in the studios and give classes alongside an artist talk and exhibition of works created.

The school prides itself on offering small class sizes, the highest level of teaching and flexibility towards artistic development.
