Beste deelnemers aan alle cursussen,


Vanwege onze gehackte site, zie je hier een tijdelijke site. Daarop kun je onze aankomende aanbod van Zomerworkshops, Masterclasses en werkplaats Model sessies vinden. Nadat we een nieuwe site hebben gebouwd, kondigen we het programma van het nieuwe cursusseizoen weer aan via een nieuwsbrief. Na de zomer starten we half september weer met onze reguliere cursussen. Op zaterdag 7 en zondagen 8 en 15 September houden we daartoe Open dagen van 13.00-17.00

We verzoeken alle deelnemers achtergelaten werk voor 6 Juli te hebben verwijderd uit het atelier. Zaterdag 6 Juli om 13.00 zullen we een grote schoonmaak houden en alle ladekasten gaan ontruimen. Een ieder is van harte welkom hierin te helpen; na afloop eten we gezellig samen.

In de komende periode bieden we nog tal van workshops en Masterclasses aan. Hieronder een totaaloverzicht. Ook voor de kinderen van 7-15 jaar bieden we tal van superleuke Zomerkunstweken.

Voor alle workshops en Masterclasses geldt dat je je kunt aanmelden door mij een mail te sturen voor de workshop/ Masterclass naar keuze. Ik schrijf je dan handmatig in.

Bedankt voor jullie deelname en hopelijk tot snel!



Dear participants in all courses


Because of our hacked site, you'll see here a temporary site. It allows you to see our upcoming offer of summer workshops, Master classes and Open Studio Model sessions. After we have built a new site, we announce the new program by sending a newsletter. After the summer we will start mid-September with our regular courses. On Saturday 7 and Sunday 7 and 15 September we keep Open Days from 13.00-17.00.

We ask all participants left work to have removed before 6 of July from the Studio. Saturday 6 July at 13.00 we will tidy and clear all chests of drawers. Every one is welcome to help; afterwards we eat together.

In the coming period we offer numerous workshops and Master classes. Below an overview. Also for the children of 7-15 year we offer plenty of super fun summer art weeks.

For all workshops and Master classes: you can register by sending me an email for the workshop/Master class of your choice. I subscribe you manually then.

Thank you for your participation and hope to see you soon!

Kind regards,


Sanne Verdult

Masterclass Figure drawing by Glenn Vilppu

Glenn Vilppu presents a logical step by step procedure where you can focus on one element at a time. First, get the gesture, then construct using simple forms, add appropriate anatomical elements then tone and detail bring the figure to life! Focusing first in the gesture gives the drawings a sense of movement and life. Glenn will work with each artist individually as they draw from model. Figure Drawing focusing on understanding the movement and structure of the human figure rather than just copying. Anatomy and use of light will also be discussed. Join this Glenn Vilppu class and learn his traditional, internationally recognized Renaissance approach to figure drawing. His methodology is applicable whether your direction is fine art, illustration, computer or traditional animation.

This class will include an analysis of the planes of the head and the way the underlying anatomical structure of the skull affects the surface planes.  A discussion of variations in types of heads and individual features (eyes, noses, etc.) and the way they affect the overall individual character of the model.

Masterclass Rosemin Hendriks

In deze Masterclass van 2 dagen wordt je door Rosemin geïnspireerd en begeleid om tot een eigen werk te komen aan de hand van een foto van jezelf of een zelf gekozen model. Na een introductie door de kunstenaar over haar eigen werk en inspiratie en vertoning van een korte film, ga je zelf aan de slag met het maken van een fotoportret. Daarbij ben jezelf het model. Indien je een persoon hebt meegenomen van wie je graag een tekening wilt maken, dan kun je hem/ haar fotograferen tijdens dit gedeelte van de Masterclass. Je selecteert één van de gemaakte foto’s, waarvan een print op A-3 formaat direct wordt gebruikt voor het opzetten van een tekening in houtskool of potlood. Daarna ga je al tekenend op zoek naar jouw verbeelding van de verschillende gezichtsonderdelen, een eigen interpretatie. Tijdens de tweede dag werk je verder aan je portret. Je kunt daarvoor als je wilt een aantal afbeeldingen meenemen van dingen die jouw (bijvoorbeeld qua vorm) aanspreken. De kenmerken daarvan kan je gedeeltelijk laten terecht komen in het portret. Eventueel kun je een aantal steunkleuren gebruiken om wat extra accenten te zetten.
