Abstract improvisation
on XXL canvases

Sunday, 15th May
16:00 - 19:00

“Art is a natural way to practice mindfulness. The colors, textures and sounds of creating pull us into the moment. You don’t need any previous training to meditate through art, just a willingness to draw like a child, with freedom and a sense of curiosity.” That is why we are inviting you to bring your freedom, curiosity, and inner-child down to our studio. Paint away your pressures, simply focus your mind on embracing messiness, and let art express the things you can’t articulate.

Your Creative Journal

Document your personal experiences
in the culture of the city

What is urban sketching? It's basically drawing on location, capturing and documenting what we see from direct observation, indoors and outdoors. Urban sketchers tell the story of their surroundings, their point of view, the places they live and where they travel. The drawings are a record of a certain point in time and place. This course is created for sketching enthusiasts with no prior experience, that wish to begin their sketching journey.

Golden Tears (in the style of Gustav Klimt)

Guided Event (Maestro)

Saturday, 22nd June,
16:30 - 19:00

While this painting - Freya’s Tears - is often attributed to Gustav Klimt, it isn’t one of his. This evocative piece was created by Anne Marie Zilberman whose work leans toward facial close-ups. Though not a Klimt, it captures the duality of weeping - that tears can be both for joy and sorrow. And either are as valuable as gold.
