Nieuw en Meer is one of the largest studio complexes of Amsterdam. The extensive grounds of 3.7 hectares is located on the outskirts of Amsterdam in a dynamic environment between the Zuidas District and Schiphol. With about 100 Studio’s this art and business park contributes substantially to the creative urban landscape of Amsterdam. At the same time, there is much attention to the ecological values of the area.
In one of the 100 art studios our art teacher Paul Nassenstein has his Studio. In this environment you will draw or paint intensively for a whole weekend.
By observing unconcerned and intensive, you will experience how you can paint the landscape, the water with boats and the creative spot itself. You will be guided in finding a personal view of reality. This doesn't always have to be the way what you initially might think. What is the impact of the light on the water, how do you translate a structure in paint or how do you deal with composition or the great division of planes and directions in the landscape? Which greens do you see and for which purpose for near and in the distance you use them?
You discover new opportunities to explore and to paint the landscape. There is possibilities for a personal choice with regard to material and topics. Sample material of various (modern) artists is present to your sight.
If we have bad weather, we have enough alternative possibilities, such as the Studio of art teacher Paul Nassenstein. You can sign up for one or both days.
