PAINTING with COLD WAX MEDIUM (Friday afternoons)

Hello all art enthusiasts on the Cote d'Azur ! I just want to tell you that on Friday afternoons there is a fun class where we work with something called cold wax medium. You can use all forms of expression - some of us paint abstracts and others more figurative. Marina (TVB) is a real master and guides us on to make real masterpieces. I just wanted to post my latest picture

And this is all the stages it went through.

If you would like to have some fun - come and join us on Fridays at 14:00 at the Hangar.

The Hangar participation in the Forum des Associations Opio

 On Sunday 13 September The Forum des Associations took place in the Parc d'Opio: All Associations of our area gave 'acte de présence' and of course the Hangar was there too!

Around 10am it opened and teacher Oil and Cold Wax Marina Teding- van Berkhout, together with Print making teacher Josie Gallagher and board member/Aquarellista Judith Veraart promoted our Centre des Arts, to an interested audience.

Apart from  awesome examples of the work of their own classes, Marina and Josie had information about all the Hangar activities and examples of all classes.
There were amazing Prints created in Josie's class on Friday morning and some excellent examples of the Cold Wax oil paintings from Marina T's class on Friday afternoon,
And next to that there were sculptures, at least one very good watercolour (by Judith), oil and acrylic paintings and info on a diversity of workshops, one of them the parent-child workshop (by Josie).
If you missed it - have a look at the pictures of our stand. We will be there again next year of course!!

Art therapy discovery workshop

Art therapy discovery workshop

Come and experience the deep contact with yourself through your creative expression. No artistic knowledge is required.

The art therapy workshop is an environment dedicated to the expression of you own inner world through different artistique techniques : painting, drawing, collage, clay, assemblage of materials and weaving.
Guided by selected themes, you will unfold and discover your own individual creative process, experimenting with colors, shapes and materials. The workshop creates an environment of relaxation, joy, self observation and expression, encouraging each person to experience the pleasure of artistic creation, following their own intuition, meeting deep aspects of themselves.

How it works:
After an introduction on the aims of the art therapy workshop you will be invited to relax through a guided relaxation which will aid you to open to the creative work.
You will work freely according to your intuition and using the material at your disposal.
At the end of the work we will share the experience.
During the workshop we will take a break having some tea and cookies.

The participation at the workshop is free : offer what you can and what is right for you.
