“From inspirational spark to fearless mark” – mixed media workshop at the atelier and as live online workshop February 2021

In this explorative art class over 5 weeks the participants are introduced to creative play and discover methods to create freely in different art materials – I am guiding you through a mindful creation process, that is fun and relaxing at the same time and provides you with surprising outcomes. You will learn how attitudes and believes influence our creations and that self limiting and blocking ideas can be overcome with creative play and fun mindful creation processes that will let you be surprised by the outcome every time.  
We will be working with crayons, ink and acrylics on paper and examine the expressive power of line, tone, texture, touch, movement and space, black and white paint and any other mixed media materials you might like to introduce. 

In each session we will explore a different kind of stimulus and spark with these materials, bringing alive the visual, the sensual, the imagined and felt. Searching for a free artistic expression of the experienced.
The explorative way in which we will use the materials is great for beginners and experienced artists a like, as a new use of the materials can unblock those who have been stuck in rut for a while. The participants will be encouraged to trust themselves and their painting process and will learn to creatively react to challenges that might appear on their paths.

The art classes on Wednesday evening (from 7-9 pm (MEZ)) will be dedicated live online classes for those of you would like to participate in the comfort of your own home. We will start Wednesday 24th February and the workshops go through to the 24th March. As materials you just need different pencil strength from hard to soft (H2, HB, B4 or B6), colourful pencils or oil crayons, watercolours or acrylics, brushes, black ink, scissor and glue stick and papers of any kind. Effectively you can also use any stationary materials you have as black markers or felt pens for example, as the beauty of creativity is, that it blossoms when our options are restricted.

The classes on Thursday morning take place at my atelier in Belair from 10 – 12 pm. We will start Thursday 25th February and the classes go through to Thursday 25th March. Due to the measures around the Corona virus the class sizes are reduced to a max. of 6 participants. In order to keep us all safe, you are greeted with disinfectant gel at the door and masks need to be worn the whole time even though the participants are seated with a distance of 2m between each other.
Should there be a difficulty to continue the classes at the studio due to the pandemic, the classes will continue as life streaming sessions and I hope you do understand that refunds will not be available. 

The course fee for both sets of 5 classes is 320€ . In order to book the classes or in case you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me and please feel free to share the information with your friends. 

I am looking forward to an exciting new workshop!
Warm regards, 
Sonja
