Easter holidays – Creative Art Classes For Children

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 learn from a professional trained art teacher to express themselves visually in colours, shapes and forms? During the first week of the Luxembourgish Easter holidays (8th April – 12th April) I am offering two classes at my atelier in Belair for children aged 6 – 12 years. The classes will take place either in the morning from 10.00 – 12.00 o’clock or in the afternoon from 14.30 – 16.30h.

The children will be encouraged to experiment with different materials and express themselves on paper, carton, 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.

The course fee is 170 Euros for the set of 5 art classes and includes all materials and a small snack & drink. 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 do feel free to share the course info with your friends.

Drawing class for beginners and advanced students – start January

Would you like to bring more creativity into your life? 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 lines? 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.

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 Monday evenings from 19.00 – 21.00  or on Tuesday mornings from 10.00 – 12.00. The classes start on the 7th/8th January and go through to the 11th/12th February incl.. All materials are included in the price of 300 Euros and you are also welcome to bring your previous drawing projects to share with the group.

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,

Colourful painting workshop – Discover your expressive style – starts in January

This fun and expressive painting workshop over six weeks is structured around the exploration of different colours & art materials, as gouaches, ink, acrylics, crayons etc. It is a class in which we will creatively explore the painting possibilities of the different materials, in order to identify individual preferences that will put the participants on a path to develop their own personal style. You will learn how to work with your inspirations and yet keep an open end process in order to avoid a painting by numbers effect.

The explorative way in which we will use the materials is great for beginners but also for experienced artists a like, as a new use of colours and materials can unblock those who have been stuck in rut for a while. The participants will be encouraged to trust themselves and their painting process and will learn to creatively react to challenges that might appear on their paths.

The workshops take place at my atelier in Belair on Thursday evenings from 19.00 – 21.00  or on Friday mornings from 10.00 – 12.00. The classes start on the 10th/11th January and go through to the 14th/15th February incl. and the participants number is limited to eight students. As the spaces are limited, please do book early in order to avoid disappointment!

The course fee for the set of 6 classes is 300€ 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.

The class takes place on Thursday nights or Friday mornings.

On Friday afternoons I am particularly happy to be able to offer a 2h Open Atelier, for all those students that would like to continue working on their own personal projects in a supportive group environment.

Art in the Park – During the summer holidays embrace the summer evenings in all its glory & create and draw outside

The idea for “Art in the park” developed during one adults class where participants wondered how they could continue with their creative activities also during the long summer months where I traditionally didn’t have art classes. We came up with the idea to meet on beautiful summers evenings in Parc Merl and to paint and draw together there.

This class used be determined by good weather! – On Sunday evenings I check the weather forecast for the week and send a suggestion out for the coming week to a subscribers list (in order to be on the list, just quickly drop me an e-mail with the note – art in the park). Particpants who want to join, reply and like that confirm their participation. I will bring all needed materials and painting boards and charge 45 Euros for the 2h session.

Participants are invited to bring a comfy cushion, water and or wine – and I am sure we will also this year spend some fun and creative summer nights.
In case the weather forecast for the week is not reliable, we now can take refuge at my atelier.

Looking forward to a creative & beautiful summer!
