Nature. Second nature

We'll be exploring her pristine landscapes and vegetation, delve into night skies and also look at weather phenomena or the path of water within its hydrological cycle. Entrants shall formulate and apply their own visual approach to an autonomous process of painting.

German, English, Italian

Acrylic or other waterbased paint, canvases and paper, various brushes and drawing materials, containers for paint (such as plates, bowls).

View natural spaces, create spatial views
How can the concept of space be explored and on the uptake artistically be put into perspective? Simple means of pictorial and graphical implementation will aid our quest for gathering visual solutions to drawing or painting of spatial dimensions. In creating artwork from any given template, be it nature or other, artistic means as the appliance of spatial depth may well be required. We will learn how to achieve precisely that by adopting different elements of either drawing or painting.

course material
Drawing materials such as paper in the size of your choice, pencils of your own choice for linear drawing and charcoal for painterly drawing plus erasers, fixative, rugs, etc.. Painting materials depending on your preferences: guache, tempera, acrylic or oil paints, grounding for oil paintings or little canvases, brushes, dissolver etc.. Also, everyone should bring a portfolio of about 20 photos of various subjects they find interesting.

Drawing in public spaces 
This seminar will assist in graphically finding one’s bearings within different places of the public realm. We will work on our very own detail and be taught how to quickly react and intuitively rise to opportunity. We shall experience how continued work in public can reduce a personal fear of feeling intimidated and have our eyes opened to the various methods of effectively operating in public, which in turn can enhance our creativity and the artwork resulting from it.

course language
German, English

course material
Each participant should bring drawing materials that he or she already feels comfortable with. Everything should be portable since we will be out and about a lot of the time.

After an initial introduction to the old technique of wax bronze casting, where we’ll visit the renowned foundry Wittkamp in Elmenhorst, we shall spend three consecutive days of creating wax models that stand approximately 20 centimetres in height and follow our own drafts, either figuratively or as abstractions.

Driven by Experience rather than Result
The concept of setting objectives is to be ignored on purpose in this class and entrants will be asked to freely evolve their ideas, thus awarding plenty of room to their very own personal preferences. Any artwork lacking a predetermined artistic goal may well bring forth a piece of art whose creation was entirely driven by experience, rather than one driven by result. This class is aimed at deriving pleasure from aimless work and intends to reflect the significance of exactly that.

course language
German, English

course material
A big selection of found objects, favorite objects and materials. Everything you always wanted to try out. Pens, tools, paints, papers that you like.

The Aura of Places
How can I best capture a place photographically? How do I find its essence that tells others how I fell about the place? The participants will deal with places in Hamburg that fascinate them personally and whose essence they would like to analyze and manifest within their works. The subject can be broadly defined, such as »Elbe river«, or otherwhise more specific, such as »Hamburg's warehouse district«. While doing so, the technical possibilities regarding light and darkness can be explored. There will be the possibility to work one night shift in order to practice some photographing at night. In addition, the course is about decisions of content, like uninhabited or crowded, dense or graphic, close up or remote. To start examinatinga place means starting an adventure. Our aim is to technically realize our artistic and contentual goals.

means to establish opportunities for individual artistic presentation that in turn enable as well as stimulate intercultural exchange.
