The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”. – Pablo Picasso
Wow, we are extremely grateful and a little excited to have these two exceptionally talented Artists back together in the UK for Art Workshops.
Stroll around the block is a 3-day retreat with Nathalie Kalbach from the USA and Birgit Koopsen Bernstein from the Netherlands.
It will be 3 days away from the everyday working of the world, spent with likeminded people. A great way to give yourself a weekend to recharge your batteries. 21 hours of pure unadulterated art, in a relaxed and tranquil environment.
Take a Stroll Around the Block with Birgit and Nat and discover that inspiration is all around you! In this 3-day workshop, we'll embark upon a creative scavenger hunt to seek out inspiring clues in our environment.
You'll learn how to turn these inspiring clues into artwork by using inspiration maps, some of Birgit and Nat's favourite techniques and tools, and your own personal style.
Based on what you have seen on your stroll and how you apply these tips and tricks, you'll come away with very unique and personal art journal pages that work. In the end, you'll have learned about pattern design, composition, and other Elements and Principles of art and a new technique for gathering inspiration for your art-making.
After these three days you 'll know how to find and look for inspiration in architecture, street art, nature and museums and how to translate all this into meaningful and creative artwork
