Be free to explore your paintings and let your paintings speak to you. Perhaps this is your first workshop with us, perhaps this is your 80th workshop with us. It is up to you if you want a guided format or prefer to have the space and support to go off and explore on your own. As part of the guided route, we will learn techniques and use various materials such as charcoal, paint and chalk, usually starting off with dynamic  exercises.

Then we follow up with expressive exercises in chalk and juicy paint, activating both hemispheres. We add and remove layers in the painting and focus on specific areas. Figurative or abstract images are played with and celebrated. This event is produced with music and beverages. explore the depths of your creativity! This is a super way let go and play with colors. Be inspired by the music, or lots of images available at the studio. During the session you can sip on some wine or tea, whatever is your fancy.  Protective aprons and shirts are available in the studio. This is a great introduction for the monthly paint club or one of the week retreats offered at Atelier Molenpad in Amsterdam. No experience is necessary!
