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.

OPEN Atelier & end of season party – 16th, 17th and 18th of June

At the weekend of the 16th, 17th and 18th of June I like to welcome you to my OPEN Atelier with a special end of season party for all students, former and new ones, friends and families on Saturday the 17th from 15.00 – 19.00h!

Together with Yolanda de Niet another artist & friend that lives in the same building, we are opening our ateliers for the whole weekend on Friday from 19.00 and Saturday & Sunday in the time from 15h – 19h. It will be a lovely occasion to catch up about art & creativity, meet with old friends and previous participants of classes again and to show my younger course participants the other work I do. In the past few years we have had lots of fun to recreate art works with the http://vangoyourself.com project, if you are up for it the camera is always ready.

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

In order to 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,

Kaleidoscope – Summer Art Classes for Teenagers & Young Adults

ka·lei·do·scope; noun, a toy consisting of a tube containing mirrors and pieces of coloured glass or paper, whose reflections produce changing patterns that are visible through an eyehole when the tube is rotated, constantly changing pattern or sequence of objects or elements. – Wikipedia
This season I am offering for the first time 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 experimenting with known and new creative techniques and trying 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.

 

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 at home. 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.

 

These classes are taking place in Weimershof daily from the 4th July to the 8th July from 12.30 – 14.30 and from the 18th July to the 22nd July at the same times. The course fee is 170 Euros per week and includes all materials. As the places will be limited please do book early in order to avoid disappointment.
