There are five spots available for each workshop. If your preferred day is fully booked, I will be happy to put you on the waiting list! I am preparing more workshops, which I will publish here and on Instagram soon.

The course is held in German. If there are English speakers, I will be happy to speak to them in English. It will be a fun mix.

What to expect:
As the title says, the current workshop is about the process from sketching to painting. It includes an excerpt from my routine work and shows my approach both intellectually and in practice.

In the first part we will do so-called mental color games. These are very personal (and funny) and you discover new things about yourself and get to know the others better in a short time.

The second part is sketching. We make sketches based on the inspirations we have previously discussed. We sketch in small format on paper and experiment with composition, proportions and color tones. 

In the third part, we choose a small sketch and paint it in a larger format on canvas. We experience that something new is emerging, the sketch may have served as inspiration and the painting on canvas becomes an independent and new work.

SUMMER WORKSHOP (Expressive Abstract Painting)
at the F+F art and design school Zurich.

July 15-19 2024, 9.00-16.00 ****Fully booked****

We delve into the topic of abstraction and discuss renowned abstract artists from both the past and present. You enjoy the freedom of abstract painting, you transform your inspirations, focus purely on color, composition and brushstroke. You will learn about the properties of acrylic paints, their composition and the many ways in which they can be used. You will build your own canvas by assembling the stretcher frame and covering it with canvas. You explore your personal color preferences and play in familiar and unfamiliar areas. Movement will play a significant role as you find your rhythm and flow. You will receive guidance and support throughout the entire artistic process, from the first sketch on paper to assembling the canvas and completing your painting.

This course is taught in English.
