Dear Thursday Sculpture students,
While Christie is away for a few weeks, Gabriela Boiangiu has offered to take over her Thursday class and have it going as usual while she is away. Class will run as usual between 10:00 and 16:00 with a break for lovely lunch. Please bring something to share for lunch, as Gabriela will keep Christie's habit of bringing a large green salad.

Chers etudiant sculpture juedi, alors que Christine est absent pour quelques semaines, Gabriela Boiangiu a offert de prendre en charge sa classe jeudi et le faire passer comme d'habitude, alors qu'elle se trouve. Class se deroula comme d'abitude 10:00-16:00 avec une pause pour un dejeuner charmant. S'il vous plait apporter quelque chose a partager pour le dejeuner, comme Gabriela gardera l'habitude de Christie d'apporter une grande salade verte.

Christie should be back to lessons as usual either last Thursday in June or early July.
Christie devrait se retour aux lecons soit jeudi dernier en juin ou aux debut de Juillet.

Please get in touch with Gabriela if you have any queries: gabi_art@hotmail or 0669188239

Life drawing is a landscape drawing this Monday 30 May 9:30-12:00

Just letting everyone know that the life drawing class will be a landscape class, due to little number of students registered. Plese bring canvases if you may like to do some painting, or I will provide paper, pencils and charcoal if you prefer to draw.
Thank you, Gabriela

Il suffit de laisser tout le monde sait que la classe de dessin au model sera une classe de paysage, en raison de peu de nombre d'étudiants inscrits . S'il vous plait apporter des toiles si vous voulez faire un peu de peinture, si non, je fournira du papier, des crayons et des chacoal si vous préférez dessiner. Je vous remercie, Gabriela

Meet Marijke Obbink

You may have noticed how well the last Café Culture was organized and how smooth it ran!
There's a reason for that - we have a new board member who has 'Event-Implementation' as her specialism...

Meet Marijke Obbink
Marijke is Dutch and lives in Mougins since 2001. As one of Pim's artists, she usually works in the Saturday morning group.

"For many years, I wanted to paint and to draw, as I really enjoyed this activity at school. The easel and paint were bought and at close hand. But because of my demanding job I never got to do it. Last year, a few months before retirement, I had more time to start investing in hobbies, so I checked the painting courses available nearby and ended up choosing Le Hangar. The relaxed and international atmosphere appealed to me. It is a pleasure to forget everything while painting, to live “in the moment”. I’m still in the phase of learning, copying art works and photographs, experiencing colors. But the next stage may be to 'let go' and create..."
Port des Moines( Ile st Honorat) - (this painting is in Le Hangar-book… )

Until 2015 Marijke ran her own company with a French partner for 33 years: an 'incoming agency', specialized in organising groups, seminars, events, in Côte d’Azur & Provence. Her job allowed her to get to know the region in all its diversity! After retirment she still handles a few clients just for fun. But she can finally spend more time with her hobbies: hiking, golfing, gardening, travelling and last but not least: painting!

Interesting detail:
"My mother was a painter before she married, she earned her living during and after the war painting flower bouquets and one of her works was owned by President Eisenhower. She would have enjoyed that I continue her passion, albeit as an amateur…"
