Participants of this workshop will get a deep insight into the field of painting and will elaborate the special qualities of seeing within a laboratory of the old and new masters. Find new creative ways in describing things in art and at the same time challenge your point of view and broaden your perspective. Visits to several museums and galleries in Berlin will be accompanied by practical work.
