In this Meditative Painting Class we will create art together in a cozy and typical Amsterdam home. This will be a truly unique experience and a memory to take home with you. We’re going to start the class with a short, guided meditation to slow down and clear our minds. After the meditation we’ll practice watercolor and sketching techniques (with extra options for those who are interested). Have you ever caught yourself thinking "I'm not an artist" while simultaneously feeling the undeniable urge to make something—anything—with your own hands? If so, you're not alone! In my opinion human aliveness and creative capacity go hand in hand. So no matter your skill level, we’re going to have a good time! There’s no experience necessary. This method will take you deeper into the creative process by letting your intuition take the lead. This approach could be a great way to overcome that creative block of not knowing where to start or thinking of what to create. This workshop will also be helpful for you if you're trying to think of a logo or visual identity for your ideas. You'll go home feeling happy, creative and calm.
I'm a Watercolor Artist living in Amsterdam. My educational background includes Painting & Drawing courses in Florence, a Bachelor of Arts degree, Art Therapy Coaching and Branding. At the moment I'm working as an Illustrator; I design artworks, cards or logos. Have a look at my website: www.ninacoco.com or IG: ninacoco.illustrations. Besides working as an Illustrator I want to share my passion with as many people as possible by showing how amazing and relaxing painting can be.
This experience will take place in a typical, cozy Amsterdam home in the centre of the city. If it's sunny we can take the class outside to a beautiful, hidden garden behind my house. The house is located in a great area with lots of amazing places nearby. It's very close to Central Station, Nemo, Artis, The National Maritime Museum and there are lots of nice cafes and shops nearby. Good to know: there will be a cat in the apartment :)
最多可有4位年满4周岁的参与者参加。家长也可携带2岁以下的儿童参加。 There will be a cat in the apartment so try to keep that in mind if that will be an issue for you.
A bag to bring home your artwork in, would be great!:)
The duration of the class is 2 hours, but if people need a bit more time to finish their work that won’t be a problem.
