“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”― Pablo Picasso
The quote is from Picasso. When Picasso saw the drawings in the caves of Lascaux from 30,000 years ago, he said: “We have learned nothing”.
I have noticed that a lot of us have unlearned something very essential to our human nature….
I think that almost everyone has an early memory in which you drew or painted something, you were quite proud of it, but, to put it mildly, the reaction to the artwork was not very nice at all.
Then you told yourself that you “just can’t do it”. I think that’s a shame and unnecessary as well.
I made it my mission to make this thought disappear, and to move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.
You will not immediately paint like Rembrandt or Picasso, but you can discover that a workshop can be very inspiring, surprising and challenging in a fun way. You will have a great result and you can be proud of yourself.
If you know where to start and receive step-by-step explanations, you will succeed. And let that be my specialty, so I will gladly help you with that!

A workshop almost always has the same structure:

- Conclusion and review
