I attended the Studio 56 urban sketching workshop in Vienna. Even though I am a beginner, I learned heaps and loved the experience. Oliver was a fabulous instructor. Keep up the good work.--Dr. Lorna Earl


Oliver Hoeller has a unique approach to teaching and drawing, his workshop in Vienna not only showed me many impressive and beautiful areas of city but also a great variety of strategies, techniques and approaches towards sketching. His teaching style is always hands on and incorporates individual tips and tricks as well. Also his good handouts are a valuable resource after the end of the workshop I can refer back to.--Carsten Fischer

Vienna is such a vibrant city with so much to see and experience! Meeting and having other artists to share in the excitement made it so rewarding. Visiting the galleries, markets, and highlighting these Viennese locations with precise organization allowed us to maximize all in a short period of time. Oliver’s knowledge and artistic talent was given freely with a kind, patient approach encouraging us all. I’m sure we all came away with renewed artistic inspiration, as well as new friendships and fond memories. -- Linda Bester
