Creative weekend sessions for parents & children for spontaneous subscribers – September, October, November

On Saturday 29th September I am offering a 2h drawing workshop for children at my atelier from 14.00 – 16.00 in which we will explore drawing exercises with different materials. The class will be a fun introduction into drawing tips & tricks or an excellent repetition & eye and hand coordination training depending on the individual level of the young participants.
The class is targeted at children from the age of 6 – 12 years and costs 40 Euros for the session. As the workshop is limited to eight participants, please do book early in order to avoid disappointment.

On three Sunday afternoons in autumn and winter I would like to inspire you to take the time to connect with your children over creative projects that we will first explore together but which then easily can be developed much further at home too. The season will start on Sunday 30th September with a Printing workshop, followed by October 28th with a Paper Fashion workshop and on November 25th the season closes with a Plasteline Video Animation workshop. The courses are taking place at my atelier from 15.00  – 17.00.


All workshops are open for children from the age of 4 years onward and also teenagers that would like to engage with their parents in fun, artistic, creative and imaginative workshops are welcome. These mixed age workshops have have been a really fun experience in the past and everybody brings their own inspiration and interpretation to it.

The workshops can be booked as a package of three for the price of 150 Euros for an adult and kids team or can be booked individually for the price of 60 Euros a team. As the workshop is limited to 5 parent & kid teams, please do book early in order to avoid disappointment.

Looking forward to spend some cozy and creative afternoons with you and your children,

Playful discovery art class for adults – starting in November 2018

Once a year I am offering this fun class in which we play and create freely with creative materials of all kind. The aim is not so much to explore artistic processes and techniques but rather to rediscover the fun to create freely and to find new inspiration in arts and craft projects. Taking the time of year into account, I am sure the projects will also inspire you for some hand made presents.  The classes are targeted at everybody from the interested beginner to the artistically advanced and are a great moment to spend time with like minded individuals!

playful16The classes are taking place on Monday nights starting on 5th November – 10th December (from 19.00 – 21.00h) or on Tuesday mornings starting on 6th November – 11th December (from 10.00 – 12.00h). In six sessions we will be covering a varied range of artistic activities, from creating paper objects, -jewellery  and collages, printing projects, to making and painting easy dry clay projects, etc. and all materials are included in the price of 300 Euros.

As the spaces are limited, 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 seeing you soon,

Creative art classes for everyone – in Belair starting in September

Dear all,

With the set up of my new studio space in Belair I am able to offer a whole new range of art classes for children & adults. During the holiday summer months there are still a few places for Summer art classes for children and for adults I am offering Art in the Park workshops in which you can enjoy summer in all its glory and create and paint outside.

Following the rentrée I am offering Tuesday afternoon kids classes from 15.30 – 17.30, for the age group 7 – 12 years and Thursday afternoons kids classes for the age group 4 – 6 years. Classes will start on the 11th and 14th September and will go over a 12 week period for all details please follow this link.

From the 10th September onwards I am offering a new 6 weeks “Boost your creativity” workshop for adults on Monday nights or Tuesday mornings, which will be an ideal start to bring more creativity into your daily life. Eye opening exercises and practical tips and tricks will help you to take new perspectives and to creatively create more often.

From September 13th onwards I am offering a new mixed media “Black & White painting workshopLess is more or discovering your artistic freedom through the limitation of colours” in which we will explore the space between abstract and concrete, with all tones of black and white and focus on painting elements, lines and personal gesture, the use of composition, structure, space and form. It is a freeing workshop for everyone from beginner to experienced creator – anybody really that feels stuck in a rut and wants to take new perspectives. The class takes place on Thursday nights or Friday mornings.

On Friday afternoons I am particularly happy to be able to offer a 2h Open Atelier, for all those students that would like to continue working on their own personal projects in a supportive group environment.

And there is so much more in the planning, an open atelier weekend in autumn, parents & kids workshops at weekends, etc. In order to stay tuned please don’t hesitate to subscribe to my newsletter.
I look forward to lots of creative interaction in the brand new atelier space and wish you and your loved ones beautiful summer weeks!

Kind regards,
Sonja

Art in the Park – During the summer holidays embrace the summer evenings in all its glory & create and draw outside

The idea for “Art in the park” developed during one adults class where participants wondered how they could continue with their creative activities also during the long summer months where I traditionally didn’t have art classes. We came up with the idea to meet on beautiful summers evenings in Parc Merl and to paint and draw together there.

This class used be determined by good weather! – On Sunday evenings I check the weather forecast for the week and send a suggestion out for the coming week to a subscribers list (in order to be on the list, just quickly drop me an e-mail with the note – art in the park). Particpants who want to join, reply and like that confirm their participation. I will bring all needed materials and painting boards and charge 45 Euros for the 2h session.

Participants are invited to bring a comfy cushion, water and or wine – and I am sure we will also this year spend some fun and creative summer nights.
In case the weather forecast for the week is not reliable, we now can take refuge at my atelier.

Looking forward to a creative & beautiful summer!

Summer Art Classes for Teenagers & Young Adults – 2018

This summer I am offering again a summer art class for teenagers and young adults that love art and would like to be encouraged to think and work off the beaten track. We will be exploring how to develop ideas and work with a sketch book, brush up on a few basic art skills that help to get on with the realisation of creative projects and we will try to push boundaries that we encounter. We will be discussing the meaning of art and also exploring works of contemporary artists. Learning to express what matters to us and how to transmit that through works of art.

 

(C) Creation of J. Mollgard 2016

The summer art class will provide a fun, daily 2h atelier environment in which the students are encouraged to work, think and discuss about a given subject, that ideally they also will work on a bit at home in the afternoon. The participants will be encouraged to work with a sketchbook and how to use it for their idea development and will be drawing, painting & building. The idea is to provide the participants with an intensive creative experience that widens their perspective in a safe & pressure free environment, with feedback and encouragement to test and experiment with a choice of artistic materials and techniques. The course will also be an ideal starting point for all students thinking about a possible creative career and that need to prepare a portfolio in the long run.

 

The class is taking place in Belair daily from the 23rd July to the 27th July from 10.00 – 12.00. The course fee is 200 Euros per week and includes a sketchbook and all further materials. As the places will be limited please do book early in order to avoid disappointment.
