The Hangar Autumn Trip to Les Alpilles

Whenever possible, the Hangar teachers, often with the support of a board member, organise a trip that has as objective to observe, experience and draw. For a longer period of time, so that participants can immerse themselves in inspiration and creativity

This year we are going to draw in Les Alpilles! That means a short drive (230 km, say 2,5 hours) and getting the maximum out of our weekend. We'll stay in a beautiful village in the heart of les Alpilles Regional Natural Park: Fontvieille, which is surrounded by typical Provence nature -and chockfull of inspiration.

Below some important information - don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions!

We have chosen a 'long weekend'  from Friday 23 - Sunday 25 September. Two nights in a good hotel, rooms with a view including breakfast and dinner with a glass of wine.
Single room is 266€, Double room 424€ (in total)
The trip & péage will be max 50€ one-way so 100€ in total. (Carpooling is recommended, we'll help organizing) And then of course there's lunch, which depends on your appetite! Count on 25€ max per lunch. The teachers' fee is 100€ fixed.

We'll visit different, breathtakingly beautiful locations, starting Friday with a 'warming up' drawing session in the village. Afterwards there will always be a 'line up' to discuss the works.
Sunday we'll have the last session, the last line up and goodbye. We will work with pen, pencil, ink, watercolours and crayons.
Partners are welcome and they will find opportunities for biking, golfing, walking, cultural trips or swimming in our hotel pool.

Sculpture with Marie Boquet on Thursdays

 Marie Boquet is our fantastic sculpture teacher. She has a group every Thursday, all day. The participants have all levels, from experienced to absolute beginner - and Marie helps them get the best out of themselves. A couple of weeks ago,, after 3 months of work, Lynne finished her 'Agneau', a very work-intensive sculpture of a sheep, that had to be fired and then taken out of the Kiln, an exciting event, where a lot could go wrong...

Here you see part of the group in action:

For all fans of Pim!
I own one of Pim's best works and I am looking for a new home for it because there is no wall big enough in my new house. It us very decorative and I am offering it for 1000€ (instalments possible!).
Seeing the current prices of Pim's work, of around 5000€, this is a very good deal!! He is by the way fine with it.
Next to an unmistakeable big signature on front and back, there is a signed deed of sale which counts as a certificat d'authenticité.

Contact me if you are interested

The dimensions: 165 x 130 cm

Pour tous les fans de Pim !
Je possède l'une des meilleures œuvres de Pim et je dois m'en séparer car il n'y a pas de place pour elle dans ma nouvelle maison.
Il est très décoratif et je le propose au prix très réduit de 1000€. le paiement en plusieurs fois est possible
Vu le prix du travail de Pim, autour de 5000€, c'est un très bon investissement !! Il est d'ailleurs d'accord avec ça.
Outre la grande signature indéniable au recto et au verso, il y a un acte de vente signé qui vaut certificat d'authenticité.
