Welcome to the Fine Art Academy Cologne

Founded in 2016, the Fine Art Academy Cologne is located in the heart of the Belgian Quarter and, as one of the few in Europe, offers courses in classical painting and drawing for both beginners and advanced students.

Our goal is to educate draftsmen and painters of the highest quality.

From Tuesday to Friday, students have the opportunity to attend courses in landscape drawing, figurative drawing and portrait drawing and to study the old masters painting in the tradition of great masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Velasquez, Rembrandt, etc. Because who does not know the technique of the old masters, as a painter has to reinvent the wheel every day.

Every Friday a live model for figurative, portrait and life drawing is available. In addition to the study program, there will be workshops, seminars and special courses for guest lecturers. The Fine Art Academy Cologne is the initiative of Guil Zekri, internationally renowned tattoo artist and owner of the Reincarnation Tattoo Studios in Cologne.
