From “surface to substance” – a new art workshop for adults starting on the 11th January

In this art workshop over 5 weeks we will be exploring the possibilities of leaving the flat surface as an art medium and we will playfully discover how to express ourselves three dimensionally with materials as varied as paper, carton, clay, wire, plaster, recycling materials, etc. The workshops are planned as inspirational sessions to broaden our artistic perspectives and to experiment with sculptural processes.

It is a workshop that can work as an eye opener and inspiration for artists that feel stuck in their routine but it is equally great for beginners to connect to their inner artist and to experience how fun it can be to make and build things.
No advance knowledge or experience is required, just the openness to playfully create will be an advantage.

The workshops take place in Weimershof on Thursday evenings from 19.45 – 21.15 (on the following dates: 11.1/18.1/25.1/8.2/22.2) or on Friday mornings from 10.00 – 11.30 (on the following dates: 12.1/19.1/26.1/9.2/23.2).

The course fee for the set of 5 classes is 225€ and includes all materials. 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.

Playfull discovery art class for adults – starting in November

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 in Weimershof/Kirchberg on Thursday nights starting on 9th November – 7th December (from 19.45 – 21.15h) or on Friday mornings starting on 10th November – 8th December (from 10.00 – 11.30h). In five sessions we will be covering a varied range of artistic activities from printing projects, to making and painting easy dry clay projects, working with paper objects etc.. All materials are included in the price of 225 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,

New “Drawing classes for adults”- starting in January 2017

Would you like to bring more creativity into your life in the new year? Would you like to develop a regular drawing practice in order to improve your self-expression and train your eye and hand coordination at the same time? Would you like to learn how to sketch a memory with only a few materials? Then this class is for you!

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.zeichnen3

We will be exploring varied drawing materials and their use for different subjects. As a strong believer in multi facetted group dynamics and their facilitation of learning environments, all exercises are chosen in such a way that the class is really targeted at all art enthusiasts from beginner to advanced. The small number of participants encourages individual and group feedback.

The 5 week classes are starting on the 19th and 20th January and take place on Thursday evenings from 19.45 – 21.15 or on Friday Mornings from 10.00 – 11.30. All materials are included in the price of 200 Euros and you are also welcome to bring your previous drawing projects to share with the group.

JOY & PEACE – Newsletter

All classes for this year have come to an end and I would like to take the opportunity to say a whole hearted “Thank you” for the trust you have put in me to guide you and/or your children in your/their creative development. It has been a joy to accompany and witness the growing, the developments, the sudden outburst of vital crazy creativity, the moments of mindful creation and the strength of the artistic expression that connects us all.

A big “Thank you” also to those of you who have purchased my art, it makes me happy when people connect to my work and as an independent I do a little happy dance by myself for every purchase 🙂
I wish you and your families a time filled with JOY & PEACE in the coming days and all the best for a very happy, healthy and creative new year, in which we hopefully will see each other soon!
