I feel that Lukas is an inspiring teacher with a lot of professional know-how. The training has given me loads of new information, which I missed dearly in my Plastic Arts education. Mastering the crafts is indeed the basis, which inspires me to paint. Hobby-materials do not have the beauty of intelligence of traditional craftmanship. The course went full speed ahead and we started to work seriously. After the training I sold all my tubes of paint on Marktplaats; now I only paint using the methods of traditional craftmanship. With this I mean that I construct the painting, which I would like to create, primarily from the material. I can very much recommend the Academy for Arts and Crafts.
