Sundays 9th July, 23rd July

11:00-13:00 Koeienweide Vondelpark

Contribution: Donation minimum €7 p.p. (part of the fee is for the education activities in the nature reserve)

Summer Sundays invite you to go outside.  If you can’t choose between being in nature and doing something creative, now you can do both at the Sunday course Intuitive Drawing in Vondelpark.

There is a part of Vondelpark (Koeienweide) where visitors are not allowed unless they are in company of a guide. As the human interference is limited, the nature can flourish here, which means flora and fauna is very rich. It is a privilege to dive into your creative source in this silent paradise hidden in the middle of the city. Read more about Koeienweide.

Mine Yapar, artist and nature guide, will lead this drawing session. She has already given many intuitive painting workshops in Amsterdam as well as art & nature retreats abroad.

We will meet at the fence of Koeienweide at 11:00 on Sunday. First we will experience being silent in nature, then we will do some intuitive drawing exercises. Finally we will combine intuitive drawing with observational drawing of nature. Interested? Register with an email to mine(dot)yapar(at)earthcolours(dot)nl
