What a fabulous summer – Newsletter August

business2What a fabulous summer we have had so far and for some of us we are only half way through the summer holidays. Yeah!! The summer kids art classes were great fun and we could work lots outside. We have had a few sessions of “Art in the Park” where we could create fun art works in the evening sun and even during my latest “Creative sparks 4 Businesses” (see above) we could work partly outside. Let us hope there are some more beautiful days to come! But even if the cooler days are ahead of us I have put together a fun, bright programme of nice classes for all ages. And I am currently researching locations for a relaxing & creative weekend workshop in November. So please stay tuned!


The time to work on my own artistic projects is always quite limited and I feel the same pressure that most of you deal with. When we finally make the time to create something, it first takes a while to get back into the flow of the painting or creation process in general. But if we stick to it, it is so worth the effort, we are overall happier, have spent more mindful time with ourselves and in most cases, we have created new beautiful objects or paintings.
If you want to use the rentrée to bring more creativity into your life, than join us in the new “Boost your creativity” classesI am offering on Thursday evening and Friday mornings starting on the 17th September.The spaces are filling up fast, so please get into touch soon in order to avoid disappointment.

kids classes dIf you want to provide your children with a creative time-out every Tuesday afternoon, over a 12 week period, there are still spaces for all ages in the kids art classes that I organise in co-operation with a parent initiative from Weimershof.
The aim of the classes is to provide the children with inspiration and materials to express themselves in all different kind of media.

There are always new co-operations and partnerships coming up. On the 20th September I will organise for the Bicycle Art & Film Festival another Plasticine animation workshop at Carré Rotondes and some further fun projects still to be discussed. For the registration and further information please check their web site in the coming weeks.

cutoutglassFor those of you who have already experienced the, “Boost your creativity”, classes once or twice 😉 – you will be happy to know that there will be new“Playful creative discovery” classes starting on the 12th November. I will update my website regarding these classes on our return from the holidays in September.

In September I also celebrate the end of my second year as independent artist and arts educator. Time to say a big thank you to all of you that have purchased some of my art works, that have come to my classes again and again and that have entrusted me to guide the creative souls of your children in their artistic development. It has been a fantastic experience! And I raise my glass to more fun to come!
Wishing you and your families a fabulous end of the summer and that we meet again soon!

Open Atelier

Welcome – to celebrate with me, my new atelier!
Even though the weeks pass by quickly I still feel happy and excited about this dedicated space for art and art creation in the house. On Friday the 26th June from 17.00 – 20.00, I like to invite you for a drink & snack straight after work. Or on Saturday the 27th June from 16.00 – 20.00, once the weekly shopping is done, come over for a refreshment & snack before you head out for a BBQ or a party later on in the evening.

InvWEBIt will be a lovely occasion to catch up about art & creativity, meet with friends and previous participants of classes again and to show my younger course participants the other work I do. And we also will be working on a big canvas together! Come and leave your mark!

For the occasion I am also offering a 30% discount on all art works on show and as usual there are also different payment plans available on demand.

In order to kind of plan the drinks and snacks quantities can I kindly ask you to drop me a quick mail to let me know if and with how many people you are able to make it. I am really looking forward to seeing you and hope many of you can make it!

Best regards,

The sunny days …

… not only brought lots more light but also plenty of change! I am the very happy owner of a new small atelier in town and could not be more excited about it. By the end of the summer season I am planning to organise an open Atelier weekend and will keep you posted about the details a bit closer to the date.

Our AMUSE Lux exhibition at Pianos Kelly is slowly coming to an end and we would like to invite you to our Finissage on the 29th March from 10.00 – 13.00 where you have once more the opportunity to talk with us artists about our inspiration, enjoy the lovely surroundings with a glass of cremant and maybe purchase a new piece of art for your home.

playfullThe “Boost your creativity” classes have been tremendous fun again and I am already a bit sad to see them end after this week. But fear not, new dates are at hand and I will start a new set of “Playful discovery art classes – creating an artistic habit” on the 7th and 8th May. Over a 5 week period we will be exploring new, fun artistic exercises and techniques that you can develop after the classes further at home too.


The next Plasticine Animation workshop for Adults & Kids on Saturday 28th March 3pm – 4.30pm still has a few available places, please drop me a line if you want to join us spontaneously!

And even though the kids classes are in full swing right now – I am already planning this years Summer Art Classes.  For all details and dates watch this space in my next newsletter.

Wishing you all creative and sunny days and looking forward to seeing you on one of the above occasions!

Playful discovery art classes – creating an artistic habit

Following on from the fun of the “Boost your creativity” adult classes I have set up another set of 5 evening classes on a Thursday night from 19.45  – 21.15 and 5 morning classes on a Friday morning form 10.00 – 11.30 to provide participants with more creative activities and guidance on how to bring more fun through the creative process to their lives.

The previous participation in one of my classes is not mandatory, but experience has shown that it is slightly easier if you are familiar with its concepts.  Never the less the classes are targeted at everybody from the interested beginner to the artistically advanced – another stepping stone to take new perspectives!

playfullThe classes are starting on the 7th May for the evening classes (21st May, 4th June, 11th June and 18th June) and on the 8th May for the morning classes (22nd May, 5th June, 12th June and 19th June. We will be covering a varied range of artistic activities, from drawing, to painting, to building, etc.. All materials are included in the price of 150 Euros and you are also welcome and bring your own projects to share with the group.

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 a fun new season,

Merry Christmas & happy New Year

Today is my last class for the season and I would like to use the opportunity to thank you for the interest and participation in my art & classes, may it be by yourself or your children! I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and hope the feeling was mutual! I now look forward to a few weeks in which I will recharge the batteries, by painting myself and reading lots of new interesting books on creativity and art  – and hope we will meet soon again in 2014!

Wishing you and your families a very merry Christmas and all the best for a happy New Year!
