Experimental Art Workshop
with Michael Gale and Sabine Schröpel
September 3 - 10, 2022
A playful way to explore your creativity through painting, collage, mark making and drawing in a beautiful surrounding.
Our workshop will enable you to:
- explore your creativity;
- experiment with a wide range of art materials;
- take your own artistic endeavours forward;
- find playful ways into your creative potential, which may have previously been discouraged;
- work with others and have fun.
Each day begins with a short warm-up activity which might involve body work, sound or improv games. This enables participants to ‘play’ and follow their own creative impulses, and allow for inspiration to emerge. As experienced facilitators we are sensitive to individual needs, so the themes for our art-making may arise from the group, your own individual process or from the rich and inspiring land- and seascapes surrounding us.
We work for four hours per day, so there is plenty of time for you to explore the place, go for walks or to the beach.
What might you take home from our workshop:
- a collection of interesting art work;
- new experiences of working creatively;
- inspiration from the beautiful climate and landscapes;
- an easier access to your day to day creativity.
We provide all materials and equipment.
We work in a small group of max. 8 participants. Anyone can take part, regardless of experience – all you need is a willingness to experiment.
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves. – C.G. Jung
