guest: Tina Konec, academic painter

Do you need motivation to be creative? Find it in UGM at a three-day gathering on a workshop between artworks. The first day we will take a brief sneek into the past. From the UGM collection, we will take a closer look at the floral motifs of the works of authors Avgusta Šantel Jr. and Henrika Šantel. Afterwards we will create the motif of still life with flowers in various painting techniques on selected carriers such as paper, canvas, wood ... But nature and plant life is also an interesting theme for contemporary artists like Tina Konec. So on the second day we will be visited by the young artist Tina Konec, who also draws from the vegetable world, more precisely the world of conifers, and translates it into a characteristic fiction. Under her mentoring, we will draw drawings after observing plants, branches, leaves ... On the last day we will think symbolically about nature and plants and try our luck on a graphic press.

price: 30 EUR / Club UGM: 20 EUR
