Experience is not necessary, this is an experimental workshop in which piece of mind is more important then a beautiful painting. When you arrive, I'll show you around my atelier. While we are making a drink and a snack I am going to tell you what makes this place so inspiring for me. Perhaps you already know what you want to paint and if not, we can find that out together or you'll just go with the flow. Do what feels good!:) If you are going to paint on canvas, i have prepared your easel and if you brought a jacket to paint, we'll put it on the easel together. I'll show you where to find the right materials and explain how to use them. During the making of the artwork I am here to advice you, and if you like I can show you some techniques. In 3 hours you will complete your painting or your jacket and is it time to say goodbye, with a selfmade piece of art to take home with you!
I am Bodil, 31 years old and from Holland. I discovered my urge to create quite recently, I was about 27, but realized right away: 'This is what I am looking for'! I had never experienced this level of focussing and at the same time relaxing my mind before. Every painting I make, takes me to that state of mind. It makes me forget time and reality; nothing matters but me and my painting. I love to share this with others, in my inspiring atelier you can find and embrace your creativity and at the end of the workshop you will leave with a selfmade piece of art!
My atelier is a place where i go to make art, where i have enough space to work and where paint drops can drip anywhere!
Artwork made by you! (canvas or jacket)
