Taking your lines for a walk – Drawing class for beginners & advanced students/starting September 2021

Would you like to bring more creativity into your life? Drawing is a fabulous way to tune in, sharpen your perception and open your eyes to the world around you. With only a few tools you can take your creative practice to all places and lose yourself in mindful creation.

Inspired by Paul Klee’s definition:

 “Drawing is the art of taking lines for a walk.”

We will tackle different drawing exercises and subjects that will also enable you to follow up at home and provide you with the tips and tricks to catch up on your drawing skills when and wherever you can.

We will be exploring varied drawing materials and their use for different subjects. All exercises are chosen in such a way that the class is really targeted at all art enthusiasts from beginner to advanced. The classes are never exactly a total repetition of previous drawing classes, so they are also a great option for previous students to deepen their understanding of the process and further develop their drawing skills. The small number of participants encourages individual and group feedback.

The workshops take place at my atelier in Belair on Monday evenings from 19.00 – 21.00  or on Tuesday mornings from 10.00 – 12.00. The classes start on the 6th/7th September and go through to the 4th/5th October incl.. All materials are included in the price of 360 Euros.

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 on arrival, depending on the infection situation at the time we will see if participants can work without masks once 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. 

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 seeing you soon,

“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.

Symbols & signs – a mixed media workshop / starting February

In this mixed media (painting, drawing, collaging, printing …) workshop we will use symbols and signs as starting point for our creative discovery.

Discover your inner creator through new processes and playful inspirations. Join me in this explorative and mindful approach to art making and discover new ways of self expression, free from limiting self beliefs and preconditioning.

The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are. – C.G. Jung

A time for giving! – The Artbox

A weird and wearing year is about to come to an end. The coming holiday seasons will let us seek rest and recovery with our loved ones, our friends, and families! Even if this year it might be only with our nearest and dearest. We want to show our love and thankfulness and try to find the perfect gift, e.g. for a creative person in our life!

Whether they are a budding or accomplished artist, the gift of a private art class with me at the studio in Belair or online (on demand) will be for sure an inspiring gift under the tree or at any other special moment coming.

Creative experiences make wonderful gifts for friends and family members who crave inspiration no matter their experiences or backgrounds in art. Whether you want to make their artistic journey easier – or perhaps their practice simply more enjoyable – my beautiful art boxes could be the key to unlocking or even boosting their creativity. 

The content of the box, decorated with one of my original mono-prints, includes a high quality block of paper, a mechanical pen with three different coloured mines (soft pencil, red & white chalk) as well as a personalised card detailing an inspirational exercise to start off with some practical fun right away, even before coming to a 1:1 session at the studio. The box also contains the voucher for the private art session with me (1.5 h), that will be individually appointed and includes all required materials. 

2020 has made us all rethink what makes us happy so perhaps this gift will inspire your loved one to embark on an artistic journey he or she has been longing for, for years! Send a mail to sonja(at)sonjasoyer.com and acquire one of these beautiful boxes as long as they the last. The price is just 350€!

Warm regards,
Sonja x
