drawing/painting course in Zurich in English or Spanish?

Hello,
I would like to attend a drawing/painting course in Zurich in English or Spanish (preferably portrait courses, but I'm open to anything). I wonder if anyone could recommend any course? Thanks a lot!

Some friends attended this course and speak highly of it, I think they continued to more advanced lessons.

Anyone know someone who does drawing or sketching tutoring around Zug/Zurich? Interested in small class or private lessons, mostly on weekends.

Re: drawing/painting course in Zurich in English or Spanish?

For those living around Lake Zurich, there is a drawing and art teacher in Stäfa called Emily Hildebrand who despite the name is an American born native english speaker. She studied Art at university, did her apprenticeship with well known artists, is an accomplished artist and for the me the real proof, I really like her Art. Thats a personal thing, but for me a factor in choosing my art teacher.

She has brought me from zero to hero fairly quickly, considering I have never had art lessons before starting with her less that a year ago. As amazon Might say of a review, "verified purchase"

The Tuesday class has at the moment both English and Spanish speakers in it, currently they do drawing and mixed media (which includes some painting) in that class. Friday is oil painting and some drawing
