The Hangar Spring Trip 2024 testdrive!

It is a true Hangar tradition, the Hangar Spring Trip. For the last one in 2022, we went to Les Alpilles and settled  in the lovely village of Fontvieille. We drew and painted that breathtaking area for a long weekend (Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday morning). (To see the pictures click here). Teachers Marina T and Marina K made sure everyone got the best out of their talents, and next to a great creative exercise, it was incredibly refreshing and convivial. Everybody loved the location so much that we decided right there that the next trip was going to be in the same area. So, our Chief Organiser Ina Carels researched and found a different but just as interesting place to draw and paint: Arles.

Arles is a city in the Bouches-du-Rhône, annexed to his empire by Julius Caesar in the 1st century BC. He made it the capital of Roman Provence. The town prospered and the Amphitheatre, Théâtre Antique and Thermes de Constantin were constructed (they still stand today).

As the Roman Empire collapsed during the 5th century, Arles went into decline, but large parts are still there, ready to be drawn and painted! All those monuments are inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1981. And as you all know, Arles was also home to the painter Vincent van Gogh.


The Marinas and Ina went there last weekend to check if it was as promising as it seemed, and YES! we experienced SO much beauty, interesting sites and feelings of awe with the old Roman structures, buildings and artefacts. And on top of that, the paintings of van Gogh, who lived in Arles for some time and was quite productive there. So - if it was good for him, it will be for us and indeed there are great spots to draw and paint everywhere!

Decision made, we will go there for the 2024 Spring Trip. We have even booked a hotel and decided on the dates: 7,8 and 9 June. You can already subscribe, just let Ina or one of the Marinas know. All the details and more info are in the mail that you will receive shortly. 

We already look enormously forward to it!

OUR  ANNUAL  General Meeting that took place last Friday evening, was a very productive one .


The atmosphere was good, the
 Board's President gave an extensive overview of what has been done this year and what the board has planned to do more this coming year.
Main things that were mentioned are the website update, more attention to internet marketing, beside our standard program.
This coming spring , the Hangar art trip will be back too!
The president thanked all volunteers.

A clear and transparent financial overview was given
 and the budget was agreed on.

The vice- president then explained the necessity of the update of our statutes that originated from 1999, the year that our association was founded, and the implementation of house rules.

They will be available at the hangar .

The board continues without Thecla Brand , she was thanked for her great help.


There was time for questions and ideas were exchanged about better visibility of the Hangar.
 The board can not do this all on its own. 
So please , if you have a bit of time and want to help our great community continue to flourish......please let the board know.
