I like to get others to paint. Nothing pleases me more than seeing people grow and flourish when they discover their creative potential. 

For several years I gave watercolor lessons at the local Art and Culture Academy. I also enjoyed giving many demonstrations and workshops in watercolor, acrylic and oil painting in collaboration with The Fine Art Collective at the Willem de Kooning Academy (Rotterdam), the Minerva Art Academy (Groningen) and in many large shops for art supplies in The Netherlands and Belgium.

I have been holding Open Painters’ Atelier every Tuesday evening for enthusiastic painting enthusiasts for several years now. Very simple: between 19: 00-22: 00 you come to my studio to paint, for the time that suits you. You choose your own topic and bring your own material. I coach you in the development of your topic. Some painting experience is desired. There is room for a maximum of 10 participants. You pay monthly afterwards, by bank, on invoice. 

On request I also give private painting lessons. During intensive sessions I teach you to master important aspects of the painting process. Here some painting experience is required. I would like to make tailor-made agreements with you about these lessons.

Open Painters Atelier complies with the corona regulations. Until further notice there is currently no Open Painters Studio.
