Subscription time for creative kids art classes – Autumn 2021

Dear all,

the season has flown by as usual and it is already high time to open the subscription list for next seasons creative kids art classes. On Tuesday and Thursday afternoon during school term I am offering regular kids classes for the age group 6 – 12 years. The classes will be taking place in English, German and French at my studio in Belair.

In 10 classes of 120 minutes, we will playfully explore the impact of colours and shapes of the world that surrounds us. And the children are encouraged to follow their creative instincts & find their very own expression through experiments with different materials, techniques and styles. The practical part of the course is essential but we will be also discussing other examples of art and our own creations and as such learn how to talk about art and learn from each others experiences.

Due to security reasons around the Corona virus the class sizes are still reduced to a max. of 6 children and sessions take place on Tuesday afternoon from 15.30 – 17.30 and on Thursday afternoon from 14.00 – 16.00.

The Tuesday classes will start on Tuesday 14th September 2021 and go through to Tuesday the 7th December. There are no classes during all Luxembourgish school holidays and on the 12th October. The course fee is 450 Euros (for a set of 10 classes) and includes all materials.

The Thursday classes will start on Thursday 16th September 2021 and go through to Thursday the 9th December. During all Luxembourgish school holidays and on the 14th October there are no classes. The course fee is 450 Euros (for a set of 10 classes) and includes all materials.

In order to keep us all safe, the children are greeted with disinfectant gel at the door and the wearing of a mask will depend on the applicable rules by the Luxembourgish government at the time and the children are seated with a distance of 2m between each other. I will inform you about a week before the classes start which rules will be applicable then.
And I am sure you do understand that children with any signs of fever, colds etc. should be kept at home.
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. The participants should wear clothes that can get dirty or should bring an apron that protects their clothing.

I am already looking forward to another creative season with your children!
Warm regards,

Sonja

Acrylic painting for teenagers – 12th to 16th July (morning or afternoon sessions)

In these fun and expressive painting workshops for older children (11+) and teenagers, we will explore a variation of acrylic painting techniques, learn about colour theory and apply it in fun abstract and concrete painting projects, we will look at inspirational paintings in art history and also learn to talk about art and the individual painting process. Five days that will boost your child’s painting skills and provides them with confidence in their own creations.

The class is taking place in English at my studio in Belair27, rue Jean Bertholet from Monday 12th July to Friday 16th July every morning from 10 – 12 or in the afternoon from 17.00 – 19.00. 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, everyone is greeted with disinfectant gel at the door and masks need to be worn until the participants are seated with a distance of 2m between each other at their places.

During the workshops the students are encouraged to experiment with different painting materials as inks and acrylic paints, express themselves with a variation of subjects and on different paper formats. The great advantage of this week long workshop is that paintings can be worked on in a continuous flow and the students are encouraged and working at their individual pace. All sessions end with a group reflection phase in which the students will also learn to express themselves verbally about their creative processes and creations.

The course fee is 360 Euros for the set of 5 art classes and includes all materials. The fee is payable on subscription and I hope you do understand that refunds will not be available. Should there be a difficulty to continue the classes at the studio due to the pandemic, the classes will continue as life streaming sessions.

The explorative way in which we will use the materials is great for beginners and experienced artists a like.

Due to the small number of participants each student will be encouraged at a personal level.

Taking your lines for a walk – Drawing class for beginners & advanced starting in January

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 deep 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 Wednesday evenings from 19.00 – 21.00  or on Thursday mornings from 10.00 – 12.00. The classes start on the 6th/7th January and go through to the 10th/11th February incl.. All materials are included in the price of 380 Euros and you are also welcome to bring your previous drawing projects to share with the group.

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.
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,
