With Roland Haas from 31. August to 07. September 2019
Mountains and painting in the mountains require a certain amount of preparation. Bring yourself “bodily” and all things “painterly” will be delivered to you on location! During this painting week we will engage ourselves with the striking appearances of high mountain ranges and their structures, and also the charming Maisäß cottages, so as to study the use of representational perspective. The painterly Alpine region that surrounds Gargellen offers the best prerequisites for this course and are made easily available by means of walking trails. Using watercolors outdoors, under the special weather conditions of the high alps, hold an exceptional attraction for the painter. One to two hour hikes for creative and climatic preparation belongs likewise to the program as well as evening painting discussions. Please don’t forget good climbing boots and a backpack. Max.12 participants.
The creative week package includes:
7 day half board, 6 day creative course and diversified additional services
