What you'll do

A very special creativity-experience - I offer it for the first time through Airbnb and therefore at an introductory price. I will welcome you in my gallery in the very center, the gallery-district called Amsterdam-Jordaan. At a cup of tea/coffee or a cold drink, we will acquaint surrounded by artworks of the current exhibition, either photography of paintings. I will briefly introduce my work as a gallerist and artist and show you the technique of 'coffee-drawings' at the example of my original works. At a large table you will be seated and provided with paper and tools. You will be able to apply the technique of 'drawing with coffee' right away and create your own coffee-drawing, a unique art-work. If you are familiar with drawing using the classical tools like pencil or brush, you will be surprised to find a new and efficient method to extend your creativity. If you are new to drawing, I will explain the basics so you can make a start by simply using your creativity. My workshop is about inspiring you to use your creativity 'wherever you are and whatever you do'. It is about 'coffee and arts' and creatively combining both. It is a mindful workshop to 'make art despite all': lack of time, space or possibilities. As an experienced art professional and host from my heart I will take care of your unique experience in my gallery

Viola

I am a multinational and multilingual art-dealer and artist. I lived in Moscow, Berlin, Luxembourg and LA before I chose to live and work in Amsterdam where I am running gallery, developing my own art projects. I organized numerous art exhibitions for renowned galleries, I worked with artists like Helmut Newton, David LaChapelle and Daido Moriyama to name a few. After 12 years living in the heart of Amsterdam, I know its art-scene, Dutch culture and the most nicest places. The workshop Coffee & Fine Art is part of my unique art-project "Coffee Stories and Images". I am giving this workshop because I love to share what inspires me as an artist and because I love to inspire people's creativity :-) I speak English, German, Russian, Dutch and French. I hope to see you at my gallery!
