How can I enroll?

Registrations start on Friday, 19th of April for (former) PXL-MAD students and on Tuesday, 23th of April for everyone. On these dates, a link to the registration form will appear on this page at 10 AM.

First come, first served. Do you definitely want to be there? Then make sure you are ready to enroll.

When is my registration complete?

Once you have completed the registration form, you will receive an email with a payment invitation. You have 3 days to pay. As soon as we have received payment, you will receive a final registration certificate from us. It may take a few days before we receive your payment.

If the workshop is full, you will receive an email from us asking if you would like to be put on the waiting list.

Who may participate?

Everyone over 18 years old! Are you interested in illustration and would you like to refine your talent? Are you an illustrator looking for inspiration? Or do you want to take the step towards a professional career? Everyone is welcome to participate. The groups are often a mix of professional illustrators and participants with a passion for illustration.

Where can I stay?

Your stay in Hasselt you have to book yourself. There are many nice options in Hasselt. You will receive a 10% discount at the following places if you mention that you are participating in the Summer School: Hostel H (Spoorwegstraat 80, 3500 Hasselt) and Hotel Hemelhuys (Hemelrijk 15, 3500 Hasselt). The hostel is a youth hostel, so bring your own towels and soap.

Fun fact! On the wall of Hotel Hemelhuys you can admire Judith Vanistendaels illustration. Download the map of De Illustratieroute.

Can I register for two workshops at the same time?

No, you choose one workshop. If you register for two workshops at the same time, we won't know which one you prefer and you risk being left out.

Yes, that's possible! View the dates and programs of the mentors on this page. Keep in mind that you have to fill in the subscription form 2 times. 

I can no longer participate in the workshop. What do I do?

When you registered you agreed to the cancellation policy. In first instance you always contact Villa Verbeelding via We will contact the next person on the waiting list and try to fill the spot. In any case, we charge 70 euros administration costs.
