Black & White painting workshop – Less is more or discovering your artistic freedom through the limitation of colours

During one of my previous painting classes we focussed for one session on the limitation of colours – to black and white. And discovered in the process that the restriction was actually rather freeing and helped the students to focus on other important painting elements, as lines and personal gesture, the use of composition, structure, space and form.
In this painting workshop over 6 weeks we will drive the experience further and not only explore the colour palette between black and white in all its options, but also finding an exciting way to express ourselves in between abstract and concrete, through the use of the before mentioned painting elements.

The 2h class is for beginners and advanced students alike, because the restriction in colour indeed is eye opening also for experienced creators and helps to get unstuck from old routines.

We will be working with coal, inks, acrylic colours and pigments, on paper and carton. You can bring your own canvases or also have the option to purchase some additional ones during the workshop.
The classes take place at my atelier in Belair on Thursday nights starting on 13th September from 19.00 – 21.00 (20th September, 27th September, 4th October, 18th October and 25th October) or on Friday mornings starting on 14th September from 10.00 – 12.00 (21st September, 28th September, 5th October, 19th October and 26th October) and cost 300 Euros.

As the spaces are limited to eight participants, please do book early in order to avoid disappointment! If you do have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me and feel free to share this post with your friends!

Looking forward to an exciting workshop,
