Bring Your Stories to Life Through Sculpture

Discover how to transform your feelings and visions into unique works in our intensive workshop.



From 2D to 3D: Discover the Magic of Sculpture

For painters and draftsmen who wish to explore depth, volume, and anatomy from a new perspective. Bring your ideas to life beyond the canvas.

Have you ever felt that the canvas is too flat for what you really want to express? In this workshop, we invite you to dive into the exciting world of sculpture, where your ideas and emotions will come to life in three dimensions.

We are not looking for you to replicate exactly what you see, but to unleash your imagination and tell your unique story. Although we will use models as a reference, the real protagonist will be your inner world and how you interpret it.

We understand that each artist has their own pace and vision. That's why our approach is hyper-personalized. We will work side by side with you, from the conception of the idea, through the initial sketches, to that first work that reflects your essence.

And don't worry if you feel you lack technique. Our teachers will be there to guide you every step of the way, ensuring you understand the fundamentals of anatomy, proportions, and composition. But always leaving room for your artistic voice to shine on its own.




Let me guess...

  • Your works seem flat or lack the proper three-dimensionality. The volumes aren't right. And this happens in both drawing and painting.
  • You wish to go beyond mere copying but don't know how.
  • Your figures look... odd. The proportions aren't right, and sometimes they don't even look human.
  • You have a vision, but how do you transform it into a tangible work?
  • You've tried to express yourself through drawing or painting, but you feel something is missing.
  • Your works look static and boring. You want to add life and movement to them.

Let's not kid ourselves.

If you're reading this now, it's because one or several of the problems you just read...

sound very familiar to you.

And because, despite all your attempts, watching hundreds of videos, going through the entire YouTube repertoire, all those tutorials,

despite all your good intentions and effort,

despite so many hours of work (and frustrations),

you feel you're...



not making progress,

sometimes even discouraged,

and you're losing the desire to pick up a brush or pencil again.

I understand.

That's why let me tell you that...

There are other ways to achieve it, paths you can't even imagine.

Over the past few years, our passionate team has dedicated countless hours to art education, but not in the conventional way...

We've had the privilege of guiding hundreds of students from different corners of the world, each with their own story and cultural background...

We've delved into perfecting our teaching methods, aiming for each resulting work to be simply spectacular.

We've walked alongside each student, understanding their unique way of learning and adapting our methodology to their individual needs. Because we understand that no two creative minds are the same, and each artist brings with them a universe of experiences, talents, and dreams.

And the most exciting part of all this! We've witnessed and guided the impressive artistic growth of our students.


Welcome to Your Personalized Workshop

Art, in its essence, is an intimate dialogue between the artist and their creation. Every brushstroke, every scrape, every modeling, tells a story, your story. At the Madrid Academy of Art, we not only want to witness that story but be a part of it. We want to hear your voice, understand your rhythm, and walk with you on this artistic journey. Because at the end of the day, your experience in art is unique and deserves to be lived with authenticity and passion.

What you will learn in this workshop...

  • Anatomical Mastery: Imagine having the ability to sculpt a human body with such precision that even Leonardo da Vinci would be jealous. With our workshop, anatomy will not be a mystery, but your ally. Goodbye to those sculptures that look like they're from an alien movie!

  • From Dream to Reality: Do you have a brilliant idea in mind but don't know how to capture it? We will teach you to turn that spark of inspiration into a tangible masterpiece. It's like turning a dream into reality, but without having to pinch yourself!

  • Tools of the Trade: No more struggling with proportions that seem taken from a Dalí painting. With our techniques, your sculptures will have the dynamism of Usain Bolt and the precision of a Swiss watch.

  • A Creative Oasis: Our facilities are like that cozy coffee shop where you love to relax... but for artists. A space where inspiration flows like coffee on a Monday morning.

  • VIP Attention: Here you are not just one of the crowd. You are the rock star of art. Our instructors will treat you as such, ensuring that your experience is as unique as a fingerprint.

  • Madrid at Your Feet: Located in the artistic heart of Madrid, you will have access to a rich cultural palette. It's like having an artistic inspiration buffet at your disposal. And with no plate limit!

  • Golden Connections: At the end of the workshop, you'll have more contacts than the latest generation smartphone. Connect with artists, critics, and art lovers who can open doors for you in the art world.

Are you ready to unravel the secrets of anatomy, bring your ideas to life, create dynamic compositions, and understand volume like a master, without having to go through years of trial and error?


What exercises will you be working on?

In this workshop, we will dive into a series of meticulously designed exercises to address the key areas of sculpture, and especially, those that will allow you to express your emotions and tell your story through your works. Here we present a detailed description of what we are going to work on:

  1. Exploration of the Initial Idea:

    • Quick sketches: Before diving into the clay, we will start with quick sketches on paper. This will help you visualize and specify your idea.
    • Emotion map: We will identify the emotions you want to convey and how to capture them in the sculpture.
  2. Anatomy and Proportions:

    • Model study: Although we won't copy directly, having a model will help us better understand human anatomy.
    • Proportion exercises: We will work on the correct proportion of body parts, avoiding common mistakes.
  3. Development of Volume and Dynamism:

    • Modeling techniques: You will learn specific techniques to give volume and dynamism to your work.
    • Play of shadows and lights: We will explore how light interacts with the sculpture, and how this can add dynamism.
  4. From Idea to Work:

    • Sketch development: We will move from initial sketches to a more detailed design of your sculpture.
    • Clay modeling: With your tools and under the guidance of our experts, you will begin to bring your idea to life.
  5. Refinement and Details:

    • Finishing techniques: You will learn techniques to refine and polish your sculpture, giving it a professional finish.
    • Incorporation of textures: We will explore different techniques to add textures and details that enrich your work.
  6. Presentation and Narrative:

    • Story behind the work: We will reflect on the story or message you want to convey and how to ensure it is effectively communicated.
    • Exhibition: Tips and techniques to present your work in a way that captures the viewer's attention and emotion.

Rapid and Notable Progress

Hear how our students are amazed at how much they can learn in such a short time.

A Clear Path to Success

Learn how our teachers help you move towards your artistic goals effectively.

“I like that teachers comment, not only what is done in the academy, but what they do outside, the paintings they do personally, the processes… that they speak to you beyond the drawings and paintings, that they speak to you of the life as artists, how they see it. It is super interesting because they are now paving the way and it gives you clues as to how you can do it in the future…”


“The time you dedicate to it is to achieve a goal that they have clear. And if you have fulfilled it and you have fulfilled it well, because they are very demanding, a door opens to the next phase. Then you see that you are moving towards something…”


“Yes, it shows. When I get home and I see old drawings that I used to do and I see them now… oh my! And in such a short time. I have been here for 3 months and 2 weeks and I ask myself, how have I been able to learn so much in such a short time?…”


Do you have doubts? Don't worry, we all do!

We know that when it comes to your artistic training, you can have a lot of questions spinning in your head. What are the workshops like? What services do we offer? How can I get the most out of it?

That's why we've created this Frequently Asked Questions (or FAQs, for friends) section. Here you will find the answers to the questions we get asked the most. It's like a treasure map, but instead of leading you to a chest full of gold, it leads you to a chest full of knowledge.

And if after reading our FAQs, you still have doubts, don't worry. We are here to help you. So don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

We will be delighted to help you clear any cloud of doubt you may have!

What does a good art academy really do?

A good art academy will know you like a grandfather knows his favorite grandson. They will carefully assess your current level and then devise the most effective plan for you to become the best artist before you know it. Part of your plan should include regular reviews to make sure you're progressing at the perfect rate and getting the results you want.

We do all of that, but unlike other academies, the MAA team isn't just focused on maintaining that perfect balance. Our goal is to challenge you, we will push you until you reach your limits and then we will push you some more to break that limit. We don't let you settle for less than the best.

Who can participate in Madrid Academy of Art programs?

MAA programs are designed for any student interested in improving their technical skills in drawing, painting, and sculpture.

Do you want to improve your skills and master all the technical knowledge? We can work with you.

Are you willing to go through the process for each technique, and practice them until you've mastered them? We can work with you.

Are the programs only for advanced students or also for beginners?

It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or advanced artist. Our students range from beginning artists with no prior art experience to advanced artists with several years of experience.
