ARTTRA offers interesting workshops as a teambuilding activity for 10 till 200 persons. But also for people who would like to do something with a group of art lovers! Such as really digging into a museum collection or painting in a real studio: thanks to our longstanding experience we offer each and every group the appropriate approach! Obviously, our guides/teachers are dedicated specialists, also available for foreign guests.
All this might be combined with drinks, lunch, dinner or a walking or boat tour.
Workshop Andy Warhol self-portrait (2,5 hrs)
Everyone knows his portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Mao and Beatrix. The multifaceted pop art genius Andy Warhol, son of Czech immigrants, started his career as an advertising draughtsman. In the 1960s he introduced his images of everyday products in his works of art: the famous Campbell’s soup cans, Brillo and Coca Cola as the ultimate icons of American consumer society. The world-famous works were brought to life on canvas using silkscreen techniques and manipulating new or in many cases existing photos.
You will apply similar methods in the workshop. The artist/instructor will prepare photos of the participants submitted in advance that will later be placed and painted on the canvas. The result? Your very own self-portrait à la Andy Warhol!
You can enjoy a delicious Italian or Dutch lunch in the studio prior to indulging your creative talents.
Prices depending on your wishes and the number of participants.
