Return of the Aquarellistas! Tuesdays from 2 - 4.30 with Marina Kulik

And we're back! The Tuesday afternoons are again determined by lots of splashing water, transparency, creativity, tea and happy melodies! Of course right now we are preparing for the 'Pure Nature' exhibition in Valbonne, starting next week Wednesday. Everyone is working on at least one painting to be shown there, so here is a sneak preview of the works in progress...
 Colorful berries by Agnès
Fab Fish by Véronique van der Mey

Bamboo 2 by Cathie
Provençal landscape by Christiane

Next week they will all be finished, matted and framed and put up on the panels in the Salle St Esprit in Valbonne... Come have a look from Wednesday 9 October onwards!!

Drawing on Monday morning with Pim

Today's still life

Every other Monday, Pim gives his drawing class, in which everything that has to do with drawing happens! Pim takes the group out to an interesting landscape or village, or he builds one of his great still lives.
Everything passes by on the Monday morning, composition, perspective, shadow & light, contrast, you name it. Also the techniques with which you achieve the best drawing are discussed in-depth.
It is a worthwhile class, in general, but also a great preparation and background for the live drawing class...

Show your Art!

Last Sunday, Hangar-member Imme Kooman opened her stunning, modern villa, to offer a taste of her cooking class teacher's Italian cuisine and to show her paintings in a 'Popup Exhibition' to celebrate the Rentree! 
Imme is in Pim's abstract class of the Monday night and she said, "my work looks so much better on the walls than on a stack underneath the stairs"
A lot of admiring visitors attended, Pim is not in the above picture but he was there too. As were many other Hangar colleagues! Look at the pictures and as you will agree, this work deserves to be out in the open! It was a wonderful initiative - definitely Worth repeating!

Marina in Franchement Art

From Friday 6 September - Monday 9 September, yours truly (watercolour & drawing teach Marina Kulik) has a stand on the Contemporary Art Fair "Franchement Art" in Villefranche s/Mer! The work will be pretty new for everyone, because I am showing acrylic paintings (with even a bit of oil here and there) this time... The Ever Evolving work of art, Chaos theory and two paintings I made on music for the Holotropic Art Symposium in Rumania, check it all out in Stand 36!

There is a lot to be seen anyway, there are 60 artists in total, the whole village of Villefranche is turned into a gallery I'm told! You will be able to enjoy all kinds of original paintings, sculptures, installations, theatre and other creative happenings!
If you want to visit, Franchement Art is open every day from 11am - 8pm, entrance is free!
