Course “Reduced Painting – How Much” Little “Can You Endure?

4-day course at the Kunstfabrik Wien

Friday June 24th – Mon, June 27th, 2022

Seminar content: At the beginning we set generous dark areas, then bright neon follows. Lines are drawn with charcoal and wax crayons. Then the reduction begins. We are now taking the picture, piece by piece, into the minimalist, down to the essence. What are we going to do? We glaze, we carefully feel our way through painting, we mask with Chinese paper or create new surfaces and traces. We use acrylic paint, pigments, charcoal & wax crayons, we use glue, and we use paper. Wax and shellac play a supporting role in the painting process.
The seminar is supplemented with an introduction to image composition and daily small drawing exercises.

The seminars for 2022 have not yet been published on the Kunstfabrik’s website, but it is possible to register in advance via the secretariat.
Registration through the Kunstfabrik Wien

Course “Let there be a picture – free painting with acrylic paint and pigments

4-day course at the AdbK Kolbermoor

Mon 07/11/2022 – Thursday 14.07.2022

Invitation to a riot of color on large canvases! In the course we learn how to set large areas and apply acrylic paints and pigments in various techniques. We glaze, we use the spatula, the scrubber and of course a brush. We work sometimes pasty, sometimes liquid or apply paint dry. We observe how the brilliance of acrylic paint changes when we enrich it with pigments. Neon or other “impossible” colors will tease out our resistance. We get to know the functions of lines and how we can use them skillfully to connect surfaces. Wax crayons, charcoal, glue, pigments, graphite pencils & brush extensions give us new impulses and are used as the mood takes us. In doing so, we are taking lots of small steps towards a new image and new ways of seeing that lead us out of our comfortable comfort zone.
There is also a short introduction to composition rules, which we supplement with daily small drawing exercises. This sharpens the view and helps us in our own image finding process.

Finally give space to your own creativity! – 1 x per week

Free painting in small groups – without guidelines

Having time for yourself and being able to immerse yourself in the painting process intuitively – who doesn’t want that?
Anyone who would like to pursue their own creativity in a small group in an undisturbed atelier atmosphere once a week has come to the right place (max. 4 participants per course). Topics are not given – they realize their own projects and work freely, regardless of whether they are abstract or objective. Here you have the chance to experiment with acrylic paint, pigments, wax crayons, pastels, charcoal, brushes, spatulas and sponges and learn a lot about image composition. If you have never worked with acrylic paint or pigments, I will be happy to provide you with assistance, explain possible approaches and give you tips on how to approach the white canvas. I would be happy to support you in finding your individual artistic path.

Joint picture review

At the beginning of each day of the course, we start with a joint picture review. This trains the eye and helps to sharpen the eye. Afterwards everyone works for himself. Again and again I will challenge you and ask you what ideas you have with the respective painting and where you want to go so that your artistic independence can develop and I give you tips on how to implement it.

Paints, brushes & canvases

Colors of the Boesner own brand and the Goya brands as well as some pigments, wax crayons, charcoal and pastels are made available. If you prefer to work with more highly pigmented colors or higher-priced brands, you are welcome to bring them with you. Colors, brush usage and pigments are included in the price. Please do not use oil paint.
You paint on canvases that you either bring yourself or purchase from me at the Boesner purchase price after prior agreement.
Just come and paint – I’ll organize the rest.

Corona measures

There are two rooms available, two participants can work per room and easily maintain the minimum distance of 1.5m. This can also be set up for the joint picture review. Each participant must nevertheless wear a mask and provide and bring it with them. Participants who have a cold should please stay at home or have a negative corona test ready. If an hour is missed for a participant because he / she is ill, this cannot be reimbursed. If an hour / the course is canceled due to Corona restrictions or due to an illness of mine, I will refund the course amount for the canceled hour.
In order to avoid congestion in the small bathroom when washing out the brushes, I will wash out the used brushes for each participant myself after the course. Since this takes a long time, the use of the brush and washing out are included in the final course price.
