More about our Art Studio...


Tina Oelker invites you to playfully confront yourself with the process of artistic expression. Each individual taking part in Tina’s course will experience a personal approach to painting that can be developed on an ongoing basis.


About this course:

Tina Oelker invites her students to observe objects at first, then to freely draw and to let them get close to the nature of things, in a way that will allow the perception of the individual to emerge and crystallize.

To begin with, Tina will instruct on how to look at and draw objects and landscapes. She will then incite the participants to “play” with acrylics and brushes on hard paper, cardboard and wood panels and let them work on primary colours and colour mix as well as on how to start an abstract composition. The participants will have the opportunity to experiment and to discuss the work done in the course of each working session.

Classical form and colour theory are Tina Oelker’s basic markers that she tries to transmit to the participants and leads to abstract composition in a playful manner. In doing so, she leaves each participant to decide how far to push into the process of abstraction and supports simultaneously figurative painting. Each individual taking part in Tina’s course will experience a personal approach to painting that can be developed on an ongoing basis.

The steps Tina plans to guide you through are to learn to observe things, to be able to describe them verbally, to get to know more about colour theory, composition, abstraction, to exchange experiences and to summarize and contemplate results.
