Pickup the wooden blocks you painted...

Remember the 'War and Peace' themed wooden blocks we created in May 2018? Many of you wondered where they were and if you could get them back... Well, they are back in the Hangar (outside, under the roof) and you are welcome to pick yours up until 15 February. After that date they will be 'recycled' in a bonfire.

NB: even if you are no longer a Hangar member you are welcome to pick up your block.
Want to see how they were exhibited in Valbonne? Click here to check it out!

Vous souvenez-vous les briques de bois sur le thème 'Guerre et paix' que nous avons créés en mai 2018? Vous êtes nombreux à demander si vous pouviez les récupérer ... Eh bien, ils sont de retour dans le Hangar (à l'extérieur, sous le toit) et vous êtes invités à venir les chercher jusqu'au 15 février. Après cette date, ils seront 'recyclés' dans un feu de joie.

NB: même si vous n'êtes plus membre du Hangar, vous pouvez venir chercher votre bloc.

Marina's Watercolour Class

Two afternoons per week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, there is a watercolour class in the Hangar.

The watercolour sessions are organised along the same lines every week: there is a subject, and teacher Marina (that's me) has pictures and a still life to inspire those who want to paint the subject.
Of course it is also great if you bring your own ideas and subjects and you will get all the help you need. Starters are also most welcome: there is a 5-afternoon starters program with a book.

This week the subject was: 'Mother of pearl'. The colourful, abstract kind:

Everyone loved the challenge and amazing work was created! We concluded that mother of pearl is an inspiring - and recommended-  material for both abstract and figurative work! Check it out here:

A marvellous soft abstract in natural colours by Glen

Isabel D. created this oyster-like shape with beautiful strong colours

Awesome abstract with mother of pearl glow by Anna-Karin

 Michele F. painted this delicate shell with a silvery glow

Isabelle still working on these interesting meandering lines

This awasome object with a true mother of pearl shine on a dotted background was painted by Judith

A true abstract, completely without recognizable shapes. To be finished by Michele C.

A different take on a mother of pearl shell, with lots of depth by Vanessa

Marie-Françoise painted  a landscape abstract, inspired by Mother of pearl

And here's the brilliant painting Carol created, also with pearly shine...

If you are interested in watercolours, you are welcome to pass by to have a look, or a try on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 2pm and 4.30pm. The fee is 15€, all materials and tea & coffee included.

Next Workshop Artistic Expression about and with CLAY

Francesca's next workshop is dedicated to clay and takes place on Sunday 24 February in the Hangar! Great to try out the material, no previous experience needed. Fee 30€ (35€ non-members)  materials included. More info in French English or Italian 0787693950 or email or read up to the end!

The protagonist of this workshop is the clay, primordial material, malleable and transformable, able to accommodate the emotions and give them a shape.
After a moment dedicated to relaxation you will be led to express yourself through the clay following different musical pieces.
Clay gives the opportunity to release and express your creativity through a very rich and archaic sensory experience.
Artistic expression workshops are dedicated to the free and spontaneous expression of your inner world through painting, drawing, collage and clay manipulation.
Because the themes are different each time, everyone will be able to go through their own creative path playing with colors, forms and materials, to give a visual form to their precious inner experience.
The workshop is also a place for relaxation and introspection, a benevolent and nonjudgmental place, where you can undertake a personal development process thanks to the expression of your creative world.
You don't need to have artistic knowledge to participate.
