Berlin inspired Collage Workshop
We had such an amazing time hosting this group of students from London while they were exploring Berlin and making art. We designed a unique workshop for the students to channel their experience of the city into mixed media artworks.
Interview with Instructor Patrick J. Reed
I’ve always had an interest in this sort of cultural phenomena that is the apocalypse narrative – I find it fascinating. But the danger in being interested in that kind of narrative is that it can be very easily romanticized. It’s a horrible thing that can be made beautiful and is therefore not taken seriously. So as a remedy to that I shifted my focus to something that was more scientific, more tangible.
Impressions from January Photo Transfer Workshop
For our field trip we had a unique experience meeting with the curator and artists showing at DISPLAY in Schöneberg. The exhibition featured collaborative sculptural work by Marie Jeschke and Anja Langer. We spoke to curator Marie dePasquier about the development of the show Enrico - Autoaction in Rehearsals, later the artist joined our lively discussion about collaboration, chance and intuition when it comes to art making. It was a great experience to have all different perspectives and to learn more about the artist’s work.
Interview with Witte Wartena
I want to register the world I see around me. However I think it is not interesting to show the typical landmarks and beauty spots. They are well known and will be captured by many others (and probably better than I ever could). The unknown or unseen (overlooked) is more fascinating. Interview Link
Interview with Instructor Dave Hedderman
Last Monday I visited Dave Hedderman, the current Portrait Drawing Intensive instructor with Berlin Drawing Room, in his studio and I rediscovered the breathtaking power of figurative works done right. I also had the rare chance of getting to know a very accomplished, yet modest, painter.
Cyanotype Workshop Impressions
Impressions from our first Guest Artist Workshop which took place on September 10-11, 2016. We had a wonderful group of students! We are looking forward to repeating this workshop in the Spring when the sun comes out again.
Cyanotype is a photographic technique that exposes images in sunlight. Creating an image requires no negatives but rather invites a direct approach that combines elements of drawing, painting and sculpture with the final element of time.
Botanical Drawing Exhibition
This exhibition took place September 3-4 and July 2-3, 2016 at the Prinzessinensgarten, Berlin.
Please join us for a special exhibition of botanical illustrations created during the Botanical Drawing Workshop. The drawings and paintings on display were created through a process of close observation, both at the Prinzessinensgarten and the Berlin Drawing Room.
Summer Art Program with the children of NUK Wrangelstrasse
We have just concluded our Summer Art Program for the children living at the Notunterkunft Wrangelstrasse. This is a place where refugees live temporarily in Berlin, and we were happy to share a bit of fun and creativity with our neighbors.
