The World in Your Mind
Our goal is not a photographic presentation of our environment, but the development of a picture. In other words, we will be concerned with the composition of a painting, which aims at compressing reality, which displays both inner and exterior qualities. This has to do with exterior appearances and with the inner reality of the artist and the viewer as well. We will work on compositions which derive from reality and then extend our treatments by means of drawings and sketches. Light, color, picture construction and dramatization are all important in this context. The presentation of light, the development of a color spectrum, and the compositional creation of tension will be central elements of this course. We will attempt to define our own individual view of the world and to determine where interest and preference for certain objects and sceneries originate and what makes these things appealing and to find common denominators between a presentation of the world and one’s reflective, personal perception. Above all, we will focus on waiting itself and on working out a personal, individual language of form. Course participants can seek motifs on-site; photographs, sketches and drafts which they bring with them  and which have stimulated their interest are also helpful for the development of picture motifs. In spite of my preference for oils, all waiting techniques, such as acrylics or tempera, are acceptable.

Course Language
German, English

Course Material
Sketchpad, various soft-lead pencils or charcoals, canvas, cardboard or construction paper. Palettes, sheets of glass or plywood for mixing paints. Rags, diverse brushes, oil paints, linseed oil, or other paints as you desire. Screw-lid jars and turpentine substitute for cleaning brushes. For colored primers, inexpensive diversion tinting paint – white, black, red, yellow, blue – as well as paper plates for mixing purposes are quite suitable.

City People
In this course we will transform a typical aspect of urban life into painting. In so doing it will be important first of all to construct a personal, inner image through perception and analysis: a moment of peace in the middle of bustling activity, the self-imposed isolation of a cell-phone user among pedestrians, a single shopper surrounded by an expanse of consumer goods, islands of shadows in garnish light, the fleeting image of a cyclist in downtown traffic… In preparing for this course, one might collect one’s own sketches and photos, or colleges, pictures from magazines and photos from the internet. In the creative process itself one could make use of such aids as the copy machine, beamer and diverse techniques. No boundaries will be drawn where format and technical methods and means are concerned. The approaches and methods chosen will be discussed in the group and individually.

New Directions, New Space – Abstraction and Experiment
This course will deal with the determination and further development of our own artistic approaches and wishes: allowing new directions by exact observation,letting go of what we are accustomed to. We will learn to simplify things to their essences and to let ourselves be guided – and surprised – by our materials, colors and lines. In this way a dialogue should emerge between the reality of the picture and our own will. We will begin together by reacting with quickly produced sketches to things that – things that fascinate us, people, space or objects of our own imagination. We shall reduce them to their characteristic essences. I so-doing, picture-space, colour-space, linear webs will emerge which are also freed from their object-images. Experimenting and discarding, trying things out and beginning anew, even turning everything upside down, eliminating and intensifying: we will learn to better understand the picture which emerges. This shows us new directions. We will see what we have discovered, and we will find what we have seen. Unexpected incidences will occur and we will begin to connect that which we are striving for with that which we have found, to act with more ease and awareness. The picture is the place where things happen. Group and individual discussions will supplement individual work. At the beginning there will be common assignments which will be followed by stimulations for individual, independent search.

Course Language
German, English

Course Material
Paper (from small to very large formats), sketch pads, large sheets of paper, rolls of paper. Pencils, charcoal, chalk, coloured pencils, diverse paint brushes, sponges, paper plates (as palettes), jars with screw-on lids for paint. White, black, yellow, red and blue toning paint, water colors, other paints, cutter, wet mounting tape, Tesa tape, and everything else which you might like to use.

Sanctuaries
We will be dealing with drawing in an unusual environment. What are sanctuaries? They are places or rooms, inside or outside which are sought out for quiet and seclusion. Among them are a large number of undefined areas which can only be found individually.  The idea of this course has this at its aim: The »sanctuary« is a thought construct and applies to everything which has to do with a withdrawal from everyday life and a real or imagined escape from something or someone. The work of the course participants will be nourished by their imagination, their intuitive empathy for their own particular sanctuary, and their own understanding of their on imagined ideas of flight, refuge and withdrawal. The place of refuge which we will be seeking are examples of getting into the subject matter. They offer a reason to seek other sanctuaries – a process, a »work in progress« with an uncertain outcome. For the most part, course participants will therefore set out on excursions in order to work in different places. In addition there will be visits to museums and short theoretical lectures on the techniques and positions of other artists. In the studio larger works can be produced which are based on smaller works seen on our excursions.  The course is directed at both beginners and the more experienced. The willingness of course members to be agile moving within the course topic

Course Language

Course Material
Paper, soft pencils, graphite pencils, various charcoals, gesso, chalk, crayons, ink and brushes, paint is also possible. It is also important to bring a camera for photographing situations.

Drawing
Using examples from art history, we will acquaint ourselves with the manifold manifestations of drawing. rom different picture presentations such as photos, newspapers, books or actual objects we will create, in drawing our own new worlds of motifs. In so doing, we will aim at finding the right technique and format for our own. Basic skills and knowledge of drawing and a willingness to work independently are prerequisites for this course.

Course Language
German, English

Course Material
Everything that is suitable for drawing can be used: pencils, coloured pencils, biros, charcoal, plumes, felt-tip pens, marker pens, watercolours, different types of papers, photos, newspaper cut-outs, etc.. Course participants should bring interesting objects with them as they like.

The Play with Colour and Shape
Or: How to Consciously Create Prerequisites for Chance results. 
I had been working much too long on a picture in my studio. Dissatisfied, I finally tore up the sheets of paper and let the scraps fall to the floor. After a while I happened to glance at the bits of paper on the floor and couldn’t believe my eyes: The formation and expression which I had been seeking for a long time. Those scarps lay there so perfectly, so expressively! I didn’t dare to reach for them, let alone to claim them to myself. Astonished, I withdrew my hand and the taped everything en exactly this formation. In this course we will work on many different composition assignments and exercises. These will make it possible to work with various materials. We will experiment, collect and screen, make choices, combine new positions, cast these out and consciously create a space for the random chance that might catapult us into a new picture-world which we had quite possibly not anticipated.

Course Language

Course Material
For work on collages, a good store of materials is important – a rising pond full of water and fish feed, From now until the beginning of the course, please collect everything that might be of use and bring it with you: newspaper and magazine pages, old photos, coloured construction paper, canvas, cardboard, etc. … large and small format. Scissors, glue, cutter, cutting ruler, cutting mat (at least A3). Various pencils  colored pencils, graphite pencils, felt markers… paints and brushes in different sizes, to mention just a few. There will be the possibility to work with paper collage, photo collage, decollate, graphic collage, assemblage, textile collage, montage and objet trouvé.

Am I pretty? Observing myself
We will attempt to phrase statements about, or questions addressed to ourselves (about life, the world, the Universe, God or whoever). We can illustrate these seriously, playfully, amusingly and absurdly. In any event, we will be concerned with establishing tensions between statement and picture, to be simple and essential in text and picture and to make honest discoveries. We will play and attempt a lot exploring the broad field between self-forgotten and reflective drawing. Through observation and discussion we will attempt to chose that which has quality from our abundance of materials. We will simplify in order to produce what is touching and essential. Strained caricatured originality or wittiness should be avoided. So much the better, however, if a result is never the less comical. It would be nice if we could put together a notebook, leporello, compendium of cards or posters at the end of the course.

Course Language

Course Material
Paper in A5 - A4 format or even larger, blank postcards, pencils, oil-based Pitt-pencils, colored pencils, your favorite brushes and pencils, if possible a calligraphy pen (Pentel brush pen), pencil sharpener, eraser, Scriptol or any other indelible ink, quills, watercolors, water glasses flannels, various (at least one) thick aquarelle brushes, scissors, cutter, glue stick, laptop.

Staged Portraits – The Painting as Inspiration
The portrayal of the human figure is one of the oldest motifs in the history of painting. Portraits had different functions which depended on a large degree on their intended context. They reflect the memory of an individual whose social status, personality or special achievements made him or her worthy of a portrait. Generally they were works commissioned by rulers who availed themselves of the services of their court painters and who often had themselves portrayed with symbols, coded indicators and secret messages. In our workshop we will analyze the special role of the portrait by examining the works of well-known portrait painters and transform them in our scenic staging. In so doing a setting for our portraits will be created in which props, apparel and light can be arranged. Personality as well as symbolism should be elaborated, background scenery should be complemented with everyday objects to themes in themselves. Portraits of individuals »off the street« or symbolic pictures with messages on subjects such as the world around us may result. At the beginning in practical exercise we ill develop an individual pictorial language for each workshop participant. At the end of each day, participants will present the photographers they have taken and we will discuss them together. Furthermore we will approach our course topic with lectures and a visit to a museum and its prop storage facilities, from which one can borrow props.

Course Language
German, English

Course Material
Depending on one’s working method: camera, tripod(s), laptop, props. Background materials and - paper (black Molton, wallpaper, photographic background paper) will be supplied in small quantities. Please bring your own backgrounds with you. Depending on the size of the course, there will be a charge for the tour of the museum. Each participant must pay his/her own lending fee for items checked out of prop storage.

Missing Words – Text to Picture, Object to Word
We know words without motifs, and pictures without texts and unlabelled objects, too. Our spirit of departure will be to turn them loose on each other and draw relationships between them. Picture-text-object combinations can be thrashed out to the most bizarre, off-beat extremes. We will draw, paint, stamp,cut, knead, build, tinker, make collages. The joy of experimentation is required, even if we subordinate the formal to content. Results may be grotesque, if necessary absurd. Will a caricature be the result, or  sort of poster, a painting with an unavoidable stroke, a broomstick with a price sticker? Or is no text necessary at all because the object or picture itself speaks its own language, a language which we understand? A foot, a kick, a backside, and suddenly everything slips unexpectedly into a turbulence. One mustn’t forget to look out of the window occasionally, or at the internet, or in a mirror . We should not, however, pick our ideas our of our bellybuttons. After all, we are trying to track down the seriousness of life. As Ringelnatz said: »Humour is the button that keeps us from blowing our tops«. This is a course for word pictures, for those who can use language as part of their visual works, for those who would like to assign a name to their »untitled« picture, for graphic artists who dislike slogans.

Course Language
German, English

Course Material
Participants will bring their own preferred material and told, instruments and equipment. At the beginning of the course, we will come to an agreement as to details and desired objects.

The Art of the Lost Form
The objective of this two-week course is to create a bronze with the help of the wax melting procedure. The following is the planned agenda: First, Michael Wittkamp will present an introduction to bronze casting at the Wittkamp Foundry in Elmenhorst. In the following three days at the Academy we will create wax modells ca.  eight inches (20 cm) in height, either as abstract or realistic figures, from our own drafts and sketches. Course participants will the have the opportunity to transform a wax model to a bronze. We will cover the models with the so called »Gussbaum«. We will work with the technique called »the lost form«: the for which we have created will be »lost« during the casting process. The result will be a bronze which is unique. After the way has been smelted over the weekend, we will be present on Tuesday for the actual bronze casting.

Course Language 
German, English

Course Material
Palette knife, wood trowel, a sharp kitchen knife. For the material and expert support and for the high cost of energy at the foundry, there will be an additional fee of € 190.

Print Graphics for Beginners and Advanced Students
The oldest classical manual print technique in the world is relief printing (woodcut, linocut, etc.) It enables a large number of possibilities of expression. Everything that can be stamped or rolled out with paint has to do with print technique, and we will have a look at different examples of it. Then we will draw our ideas and prepare suitable drafts for print. We will do both black and whit and color prints, single prints or limited editions. All of the technical problems which will confront us in the process will be tackled professionally and experimentally within the parameters of the print technique. We will undoubtedly be surprised by what we discover on our on creative path. There’s no such thing as »that’s not possible«. Each participants will work on a theme of his/her choice. We can accomplish a lot in two weeks!

SHAPE CHANGER – Form – Dekonstruction – Material
At the beginning of the course, we will depart on a search for forms which we otherwise don’t perceive. What interesting everyday objects are there around us? Is our gaze directed at an espresso pot, a lamp or a candle holder? With the help of paper and muslin, course participants will research their chosen object, disassemble it, and transfer the form to a second copy of the original. Together we will find the right size and the suitable place on the body for our new project. Willl the lamp become a sleeve? The espresso pot a dress? The candle holder a jacket? Finally the participants will find the right texture, by means of different material experiments for the form. Does it need a supplementary material such as silicon or latex might provide? Or would a flowing material better accentuate the form that has been developed? This course is open to everyone who already has experience in pattern development and sewing, but different levels of experience are welcome. Advanced students might, for example, develop during the course a »form library« based on the objects they have chosen which could serve as the basis for a collection. Moreover, there will be a possibility to transfer the idea of deconstruction and form realization to articles of clothing (e.g. second-hand coats) and to develop a principle of form.

Course Language
German, English, Italian

Course Material
Fabric scissors, small scissors, measuring tape, sewing needles, thread, sewing pins (with metal heads), paper scissors, masking tape, pencils, marking pens (e.g. wide Stabiles), set square, curve ruler. Presumably, Pentiment can Supplik us with larger wmounts of muslin which participants can pay for in course.

Transformations (An Experimental Portfolio Course)
In this course we will draw paint, build, arrange photographs, work with models, make collages and films. Cours participants will become acquainted with different techniques and mediums, and also with various artistic working strategies, in order to develop personal forms of expression and to realise individual results for a portfolio. Pictures, motifs and objects will be subjugated to a calculated artistic transformation process, so that new forms of expression emerge. Randomly assembled everyday commodities, for example, can be worked into objects and later arranged for a photograph. Or the subject matter of a picture can be interpreted and reconstructed with different materials in order then to be reproduced as pictures in the form of paintings or photographs. The course should be seen as an experimental basic course in which participants can plumb their personal potential and assemble their work for a portfolio. 

Course Language
German, English

Course Material
Brushes, acrylics, paper (DinA1, 190 g/square meter), cardboard, pencils, chalk, watercolors, paste, scissors, camera (or cell phone camera). A list of additional materials will be announced later.
