Workshops and courses by the raddest creatives of Amsterdam.

In real life courses and workshops start again in September 2020

We've started The Cool School with the idea that in real life or 1 on 1 teaching are so much better than online group courses with a lot of students. To stay true to who we are we've decided to take a little break from group courses and workshops and be back with those in September.

Online 1:1 teaching is available from now on

Our team is still available to help you level up your creative skills. Anything from Adobe Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, After Effects to Branding and Visual Identity Development. 

Personal teaching: €75 per hour.

The Cool Painting Club

Sun April 26th|  12:30 Amsterdam time

Together with illustrator and creative multi-talent Alina Tang we've hosted a Lunch & Learn on Illustration with Gouache and Watercolor last week.

This was so much fun that we decided to start a collective painting session. Join in on the fun. The Cool School founder Beau will start with a little intro on color theory and then we'll start painting together, from our homes on Zoom.

You can ask Beau and Alina everything about color, painting, illustration and design in the mean time.

The cool way of teaching


Keepin' it personal
Our workshops and courses are taught in small groups so you'll have all the time to ask all of your questions.

Taught by the raddest creatives
Our team exists of a talented bunch of creatives who know exactly what they're doing so they can teach you how to apply your new skills to your personal projects.

Customized teaching
For every workshop and course we'll ask some preparation from your side: set a goal for yourself of what you'd like to be able to do after you've finished. We'll make sure to customize the program to what you need to know.

We're based in Amsterdam

You can find us at Plantage Muidergracht 22-24 (Amsterdam East, near Artis)
