What you'll do

First I give you a warm welcome while enjoying a drink in my studio in one of the creative hotspots of Amsterdam. There I start the workshop with a short story about the process of intuitive painting and the idea behind it. Then you get a first painting assignment on canvas and fabric to feel what I want to convey with my story. After you have tasted a bit of everything you can start with the creation you want to make. I will guide you on your way.
There are plenty of excellent dress up clothes available to perhaps not get dirty. And of course i like to share the afternoon or evening with you while enjoying a drink and a snack nicely provided by me.

The studio is a free space without expectation or condemnation, bring an open mind and good energy.
Other things to note
This workshop will help me protect my existence as full-time authentic artist and give joy to my son. Creation gives satisfaction to my existence and a part of it I would like to share with others.

Your hostess of this intuitive painting experience will be myself, Nadine. I graduated in 2000. Was nominated for Royal price of Free painting by the Queen of the Netherlands in 2011, and have set up two underground clubs in the corners of Amsterdam. I like to warm welcome you and give a clear creative experience without purpose or expectation but with individuality, pleasure and surprise.
Feel free to create on canvas or fabric. Stay close to yourself and choose exactly what you want, not what you think you should do. Let go of directing thoughts and enjoy pure pleasure of playing.

Before I started painting, Nadine said “Anything you have ever wanted to do with paint, you can do here”. I ended up painting with my hand instead of a brush most of the time. I had the best time! I highly recommend doing this at least once.

Highly recommended! its beyond a art workshop, more like a therapy. Our 3 hours session was so creative and productive, time flies as you are very concentrated on your flow. I love the pieces that we created as a group and also my own, such a nice experience.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this activity, but I knew it would get me a little outside of my comfort zone (I'm not skilled in the visual arts), which is exactly why I wanted to try it. The activity isn't so much a painting class as a comprehensive creativity workshop. Nadine took the time to hear a little about each of us in the group. Once we felt comfortable, she kicked off a deep discussion about creativity and expectations, using a handy mind-map she'd made as a guide. For the rest of the workshop, we experimented with freeing ourselves of (artistic) expectations to create individual & group collages & paintings. I left with lots of paint on my hands and some of my own art to take home. I wouldn't call it conventionally beautiful, but it's loaded with emotional meaning for me and the whole process was super cathartic and gezellig. Thanks, Nadine!

Amazing experience, in some ways also therapeutic if you let yourself go deep into what you feel making the paintings. Highly recommend to anyone looking to feel more connected with themselves.

What an awesome experience!! Did this together with some friends as a private experience and Nadine was really great at both making us think about creativity and putting it into practice through painting. Would definitely recommend as a fun, out of the box, activity!!

This Workshop was absolutely more then I expected it to be. Nadine is such a nice person who will make you feel comfortable and seen so easily. She listens to you and your creations very well and help you to connect with yourself through the art. Also she was really nice and understanding with my dog who was barking a lot in her studio.
