Symbols & signs – a mixed media workshop / starting February 2022

In this mixed media (painting, drawing, collaging,) workshop we will use symbols and signs as starting point for our creative discovery. Symbols have been used for millennia by artists to convey an obvious or hidden message and through C.G. Jung’s work we also know that symbols allow us access to our subconscious believes and dreams. Discover your inner creator through new processes and playful inspirations. Join me in this explorative and mindful approach to art making and discover new ways of self expression, free from limiting self beliefs and preconditioning.

The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are. – C.G. Jung

Intensive Drawing week – Taking your lines for a walk / 28th March – 1st April 2022

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 deepen 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 from Monday to Friday every morning from from 10.00 – 12.00 or in the evenings from 19.00 – 21.00. The classes take place from the 28th March to the 1st April.  All materials are included in the price of 360 Euros.

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 on arrival, depending on the infection situation at the time we will see if participants can work without masks once 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.
