Inspired by Rebecca Belmore’s works entitled Wave Sound, 2017, participants will be invited to create sculptures that, during a later outing in a forest or beside a body of water, will become sound amplifiers. Listening to ambient sounds will heighten your awareness of the fate of our planet and of your relationship with nature.

You can’t remain indifferent to Janet Werner’s paintings. You’ll soon be drawn in by the striking effect of the transformed figures and by the often unusual context surrounding them. Subjects and contexts will consequently be the elements inspiring this series of painting workshops in which you’ll have the opportunity to reinvent the portrait genre from a new angle every week. Enjoy your experimenting!
