In warm weather, enjoy a nice shade on the terrace or among one of the many fruit trees to paint in nature. Of course, this nice holiday week is all-inclusive and you will be picked up at the airport in Budapest and brought back again.
First, you get an explanation of materials, substructures and the various possibilities or themes. You are looking for a nice place to work and before we begin painting, we try to clear our head through a meditation with attention to breathing. This helps to come to your feeling, intuition. From your feelings you choose color and start painting. While you are busy, Annerie provides you techniques that you can apply equally! So you learn in practice as you go. By painting intuitively, paint and choose your color as it were from your feelings. This will help you to let go of everyday things. The results are very surprising, original and make you happy.
It is nice that (almost) everything is allowed and nothing is mandatory. The painting is suitable for everyone .... to paint you do not have to draw. Painting with acrylic or mixed technique accompanied by artist Annerie. This workshop includes the use of materials, with the exception of paper and paints. These are available at a small fee. Experience how intuitive expression works freely and strengthens your sense of inner strength.

The workshop sculpture in soapstone is suitable for beginners as well as advanced. Soapstone is a very soft stone that is easy to handle by means of filing, sawing and drilling. Finally sanding, polishing and lubricating the image will make you feel comfortable. The most beautiful colors appear.
Experience is not necessary. Editing the piece of soapstone goes into steps. The first step is to look and turn, see the shape of the stone. When it's clear to you, you can start rasping and filming. There are rasps and shapes in all kinds of shapes and sizes available. If the shape is there, it can be polished with inter alia sandpaper of various grains. Finally, the piece of stone is polished and put in the wax for a beautiful shine.
Sculpture and Mosaic holidays take place in the same period as the painting holidays. So you can book for your sculpture or mosaic holiday with the codes S1 to S4. You can also paint if you want. Check here the agenda or availability and choose the period that suits you best.
You can use natural materials that you find in the area, and sometimes you can also use it as a substrate, creating a sustainable organic-derived mosaic. A nice keepsake of this "natural" holiday.
Technique and material knowledge are present. Nature provides abundant materials, such as beautiful pebbles in all kinds of earthy tones, pieces of colored tiles that are left behind. Wood, in sizes, colors and types. And then there is always what the shop has for mosaics. Every tile shop will have some broken tiles. They like to donate them to the creative process of an artist. Heavy and big creations that can not be taken on the plane, are brought to you by the end of the season (in Holland).

Beautiful walks in the morning . . . . .
As a variation on a painting holiday, we have been organizing this unique combination week for a few years: Walking and Painting. In the mornings we go hiking with a guide and in the afternoon you can paint wonderfully on the outside of Annerie, or we go to another beautiful place. The walks have been specifically selected by our guides and not too long. The tours vary from 5,5 to 9.5mi., so you walk 2.5 to 3.5 hours.
Before departure we do some stretching and yoga exercises, always good to warm up the muscles a bit.
When you return home, a delicious lunch is waiting for you. When you first want to freshen up, or take a dip in the pool, you can. Together we enjoy lunch and after that it is a rest time (siesta). Do what you want, such as hangmatting, or lay on one of the sun beds by the pool, relaxing, reading or just nothing. Check here the agenda or availability and choose the period that suits you best. These specific weeks are always very busy so do not wait too long with your booking.
