The studio is the place on Vlierhof where people can connect with their creativity. For personal growth this can be an important area to explore and learn. The idea is to connect with the inner self and work from the themes that arise there. Without thinking too much, but only by using ones hands. To find those themes it is fun to look around. In the world the nature and in people, in the feelings they have.
You will be coached by experienced artists. Who can learn you crafts and guide you on an individual path. If you want you can go deep and develop a personal style in art. The craft and the idea usually go hand in hand. Everything is possible, in terms of concept level and skills as long as the person likes to focus and work. Perseverance is needed. It is all a training in balance, between head and hands, between skill and experience, between idea and possibilities.
