About this course:

In this week’s course I would like to approach the use of acrylics in a process like, experimental manner. Inspired by the surroundings, by visual impressions of the location, but also by the scents & smells of nature and perhaps some of the mind projections brought with you. Each participant will individually choose a particular theme.

Parallel to practical work an overview of various examples taken from the contemporary art scene will be given that directly relate to painting/painting space and light. On this subject, a series of exercises will be suggested.

Individual discussions will support and deepen your objectives. Participants are also encouraged to share their observations with one another.

Outings in neighbouring villages of the Pyrenees will allow you to memorize your impressions through sketches, drawings and photos taken with your cell phone.

Experiences gathered during this masterclass will incite each participant to develop further, drawing on the bases and results of this course. This will help create a constructive foundation of content and formal structure to be worked further, on a daily basis, upon your return.
