The Academy of Fine Art Germany is a private institute located in Bad Homburg/Germany, whose aim is to provide high quality training in Drawing and Painting as well as Sculpting from life.

Our Drawing and Painting program and our Sculpture program got accredited by the Ministry of Art and Science in Hessen. That means our graduates receive the title “state-recognized Painter” and “state-recognized Sculptor”. As both programs got accredited international students can get a Student Visa and move to Germany. Students also have the possibility to apply much easier for student loans and credits or also apply for scholarships.

Both programs have a regular study period of 3-years in full-time. Students can register for full- or part-time. The Drawing and Painting Program follows a concept that has been established at the European Painting Academies in the 19th century. From the first drawing exercises by Charles Bargue, to Cast Drawing- and Painting, Still-life and Portraiture, the difficulty of the exercises progressively increases. That way, the fundamentals can be practised and internalized before more complex topics are introduced. 

The Sculpture Program is focusing on live drawing exercises and learn to sculpt with clay. We are teaching the fundamentals and building the students’ knowledge and skills gradually up from more simple projects to complex ones.

Both Programs are working a lot figuratively. Students are doing short- and long poses. But also learn about Light theory, Artistic Anatomy, Composition, Concept Development and Art history. Furthermore, we offer an Art Business course in order to equip the students with all the tools they need to become a professional artist.


After both 3-year programs, students can decide to stay for another year and continue their studies in digital drawing. In this year they will be taught in the fundamentals of Concept Art and VFX (Visual Effects) and learn to work with the most common programs the industry uses. Their teachers are professionals from well-known companies of the movie and gaming industry. After graduating they will receive the additional title “Qualification in Concept Art/VFX”.

Our classes are generally held in English and some of our teachers also speak German and Spanish.
We are located in the beautiful little town of Bad Homburg, which has big parks and offers a high standard of living. You will find everything you need there and can spend relaxing hours in the thermal springs. If you need more action or attractions, Frankfurt am Main is only 15 minutes away. As an international city with a strong cultural atmosphere, many museums, fantastic restaurants and bars, Frankfurt is one of Germany's Hot Spots. Located in the middle of Europe, it can easily be reached from all over the world.

Dana Güttler

Director

As the director, Dana is the heart and soul of the Academy of Fine Art. At a young age, she discovered her love of art and quickly realized that realistic art necessitate structured and detailed instruction. Since at the time there was no opportunity in Germany to enrol in such a course, she took intensive classes from private tutors.

After the successful completion of her degree in business administration, she set herself the goal to make realistic art as a subject of study accessible (again) in Germany. In 2014 she was able to achieve this goal with the creation of the Academy of Fine Art. Dana utilizes her commercial expertise as well as her artistic know-how to passionately lead the Academy, representing the Academy publicly as well as forging important contacts.

Instructor

Jingsi was born in China and lives in Germany. She got the diploma of Diplom Kauffrau in the university and worked for years as a financial analyst.

In 2021 she finished the full-time drawing/painting program at the Barcelona Academy of Art. She was awarded the scholarship as a teaching assistant in her third year study in Barcelona. Compared to working in the studio, she is more fascinated by the natural light and would dedicate her life to landscape painting.

Hubert Josef Malter

Instructor

Hubert Malter is a sculptor hailing from Austria. His specialised education in sculpture began at the age of 15 with the ‘Fachschule für Bildhauerei’ in Salzburg, where he learned wood and stone carving as well as welding, casting and modelling. He went on to study in the sculpture program at the ‘Florence Academy of Art’ in Italy, where he was working as an assistant alongside the director by his third year of study. Here he was awarded several scholarships, and graduated with ‘the Sculpture of the Year’ prize.

Hubert has taught and assisted in sculpture and drawing workshops in Austria, Italy and in the Netherlands. He worked as a principle instructor for ‘the Florence Academy of Art’ before moving to Germany to start the sculpture department at ‘The Academy of Fine Art Germany’. His work has been a regular selected finalist in the ’ARC Salon’ for the ‘Sculpture’and ‘Fully From Life’ categories, as well as it was selected in the finale at the ’Figurativas’ contest. Hubert’s work focuses on narratives surrounding expressions of the human figure, and animals that have taken symbolic meaning in his life.
