an Invitation to a drawing and painting workshop in an environment that looks like a painting.

situated in an Idyllic location over the hills, watching over a beautiful valley and mountain peaks with a warm family atmosphere. 

within a small group that allows personal guidance and support, we will explore the experience of site specific drawing and painting, capturing the moment and place with the creative power of observation rather than our mobile phone camera.

choosing a subject and creating a composition from reality, nature and landscape, still-life or the architecture of the house. 

the workshop will offer learning exercise in different techniques you could choose from, 

like pencil, ink, charcoal, aquarelle, gouache or acrylic. 

other materials are also possible to use if you are interested and want to bring your own. 

we will work with short quick exercises next to a work you can take more time to make over the days of the workshop.

Tal Amitai is a visual artist, character designer, painter, film maker, musician and sugar crafter,

graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, creating scenes through the last 25 years he has been working and teaching in Zurich, Berlin and Tel Aviv

10 years Volksluxus- Still Alive!!!


Minotaurus – once lost in the labyrinth – comes to life again and with it the legacy of founder Michael Steger, the silversmith and performance artist who died last year. Together with Volksluxus artists, Michael Steger forged his giant Minotaur, which now invites you to dance!

Leading up to this we also are offering a mask forging workshop and a movement and dance performance workshop. Participation in either also invites you to join in the Dance of the Monster Masks on 31 October.
