HOLIDAY COURSES 2017

ABC-holiday course Anno 1417 from 03 till 07/07/2017

A journey to the Middle Ages
In this course we explore the crafts, arts and daily life in a medieval village and city…
prepare your own medieval meals, feel the passion of courtly love and listen to Gregorian chants…
make knight toys, pointy hats, helmets or coats of arms.
go on a pilgrimage to distant lands and tell stories of Floris and Blancheflour of the Round Table and of Robin Hood…
build castles, study Gothic cathedrals and let light shine through rose windows.
Practice, with our swords, the martial arts of the knights and shoot with crossbows and catapults…
For the final tournament, you choose: are you a minstrel, queen, squire, knight or noblewoman… Or maybe you prefer the court jester?

ABC-holiday course Sculptures & Installations from 21 till 25/08/2017

We draw inspiration from all cultures, from classical examples to modernism.
Soap, wood, clay, stone, plaster, wire, paper and cardboard, found objects and natural materials are abundantly available to design and reinforce your own creations.
Monumental land art installations or small portrait heads, mobile sculptures or kinetic art, assemblages or one-minute statues…
Modern sculpture transcends tradition and experiments with great freedom, even in public places.
We visit the studios of Michelangelo, Rodin and Brancusi, Arp, Henri Moore and Niki de Saint Phalle, Dubuffet, Giacometti and Christo, of Picasso, Miró and Barbara Hepworth, of Tinguely, Richard Long, Joseph Beuys, and more.
The different techniques and choice of materials of all these artists excite the imagination of the individual creative process of our young participants.
