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.

Creative Summer Art Classes For Children – 2017

Are you looking for a creative art class for your children in which their imagination is encouraged to blossom, in which they can unwind from the pressure of daily school life and where they can learn to express themselves visually in colours, shapes and forms?

During two weeks from the 10th July until the 14th July and the 17th July to 21st July I am offering again a class from 10.00h – 12.00h for children aged 6 – 12 years old.

UntitledIn the classes the children are encouraged to experiment with different materials and express themselves on paper, on canvas or three dimensionally. The great advantage of a week long workshop is that bigger art projects can be worked on in a continuous flow. And I hope the weather will also allow us to work outside, which permits a different perspective than the usual classroom atmosphere and leads to new inspirations! The class has a small participants number and therefore allows individual tuition.

The course fee is 150 Euros for the set of 5 art classes and includes all materials and a drink & small snack. The fee is payable on subscription 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.

For subscriptions or any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. And please feel free to share the course info with your friends.
