We are happy to announce that we have been given the opportunity to invite you to a free Easter workshop in abstract painting with the artist Sofia Heinonen! The workshop is arranged for children and young people on three occasions adapted to three different age groups.

Participants will explore what abstract painting is by painting spatially against the wall, on the floor and at the easel. With brush, scraper, palette knife and tire (!), different techniques and materials are examined, as well as color theory and the importance of scale. Is it possible to transfer feelings, memories and thoughts to painting? Can an abstract painting contain secret messages and messages?
