Excited to introduce a new teacher for mixed media on Fridays.

After graduating from a Bac Applied Arts and two years in Paris in Graphic Design, I needed to find meaning in what I could communicate. Working for a company not aligned wit

be more expressive, creative and inspired…!
Friday : 9.30-12am ; 25€

Supplies included (feel free to bring old magazines or any other fun supplies you can think about!)tinu my studies in Paris, while I was admitted to all the art colleges to go on the adventure of the school of Life, in India and then in Nepal. There, art caught up with me quickly to do many murals for restaurants and hotels. Soon after I gave painting lessons for expatriate and local children, then art therapy afternoons for adults. I thus lived for more than a year in Nepal, blocked and without a bank card during the covid period, living only from my artistic activities! After some local political problems, I returned to France to devote myself more to my artistic practice and that's how I decided to do an intensive year of American art school online and coached. Today, I continue my artistic path and I would like to share my experience with Mixed Media, an intuitive, spontaneous and fun practice, open to everyone!

We will see together different techniques such as: collage, inks, spray paint, markers, gold leaf, rollers, texture... We will also learn how to do constructive criticism, create unique and personal compositions, go out of our comfort zone, be more expressive, creative and inspired…!

Great tip for a beautiful and inspiring exposition, to visit this week in Valbonne's , Salle St.Esprit

A colourful and diverse exhibition takes place until October 30th. A must see!

Marina Kulik , one of Hangar's  lovely and inspiring teachers, exposes with Sally Ducrow, an independent artist who specialises in  Land Art.

The exposition, 'Mondes Paralleles' , shows works from them using only recycled materials, beside others.

They have created different worlds,  each with their artistic visions,  subjects and materials , which makes this exhibition very colourful and diverse indeed.

A Cosmic World, an Artistic World, a Spiritual World and also the World of Valbonne.

There are sculptures from pieces of nature, paintings in all kind of media and styles.

For all tastes there is something and all pieces are for sale at reasonable prices .

Yesterday evening was the well visited vernissage. It was a warm and joyful event, with lots of family and friends  present. 

Our President , Sylvie Morliere, added a colourful speech  and it was finished off  with a drink and some nibbles.

Thanks ladies. Great accomplishment! Congratulations Marina and Sally!

Go and have a look for yourself to see their Parallel Worlds of creativity and inspiration.

Where? In the fabulous building, the Salle St. Esprit, next to the church in the old medieval village of valbonne.

A great exhibition place , with faulted ceilings great light and atmosphere.

The Hangar Autumn Trip 2022 to Fontvieille

On Friday morning 23 September a group of enthusiastic drawers and painters drove all the way to Fontvieille in Les Alpilles for the Hangar Autumn trip.  An intense weekend of drawing and painting outside, organized by the board (president Ina Carels) and 2 teachers (Marina K and Marina T).

We had 4 sessions, all different, all in amazing surroundings, with fantastic lunch to recharge and when we got home in the hotel there was a pool, a lovely bar and then fantastic food. A true success, everyone worked so well and the artworks created were without exception of an amazing quality. The Hangar crew was -and is- very proud of all participants  
New friendships were forged, there were partners who discovered great walks, museums and wine tastings and golf mates found each other!
Sunday night all participants were home again!  
Everything worked out, Big Thank You to Ina Carels' immaculate organisation!!
Even the morning rain on Saturday made the stay in the Abbaye just more cozy and rewarding.
We will soon organize a reunion, with an exhibition of the best works – and here are some action pictures/memories!!
