What you'll do

A very special creativity-experience - I offer it for the first time through Airbnb and therefore at an introductory price.
I will welcome you in my gallery in the very center, the gallery-district called Amsterdam-Jordaan. At a cup of tea/coffee or a cold drink, we will acquaint surrounded by artworks of the current exhibition, either photography of paintings. I will briefly introduce my work as a gallerist and artist and show you the technique of 'coffee-drawings' at the example of my original works.

At a large table you will be seated and provided with paper and tools.
You will be able to apply the technique of 'drawing with coffee' right away and create your own coffee-drawing, a unique art-work.
If you are familiar with drawing using the classical tools like pencil or brush, you will be surprised to find a new and efficient method to extend your creativity. If you are new to drawing, I will explain the basics so you can make a start by simply using your creativity.

My workshop is about inspiring you to use your creativity 'wherever you are and whatever you do'. It is about 'coffee and arts' and creatively combining both. It is a mindful workshop to 'make art despite all': lack of time, space or possibilities.

As an experienced art professional and host from my heart I will take care of your unique experience in my gallery
Other things to note
My workshop offers you to participate in drawing on paper. I will be there to guide you and to answer questions on the art-scene in Amsterdam, the culture and beauty of this city, and to present you my series Coffee Stories & Images.

One-on-one workshop, or with 2, 3 or 4 people. It is safe in a very small group or just individually. It is contemplative and creative, therefore it reduces stress and strengthens your immune system and mind.
I am an artist and gallerist, originally from Moscow and Berlin, I love to share what inspires me and make people feel energised, motivate them and make them think and act creative.
I organized numerous art exhibitions for renowned galleries, worked with artists like Helmut Newton, David LaChapelle and Daido Moriyama. In Amsterdam I am running gallery, developing my own art projects. I have developed several art and photography series, you will see many inspiring works in my gallery.
This workshop is part of my unique art-project "Coffee Stories and Images". I speak English, German, Russian, Dutch and French.
See you soon!

Where you'll be

You will be safe and one-on-one with me or together with your partner/friends in my fine art gallery in the old center of Amsterdam. My gallery is at the ground floor with glass walls facing the street. You will be seated with the view on the typical Amsterdam architecture and streets. The gallery is small and people visit it by appointment only. I don't have large groups and never crowds. People who pass by see the art through the windows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 6 reviews.

This was fun! I'm an artist and had never used this medium before. She also told me of a place to visit called Lookout point which completed my trip to Amsterdam. Would recommend.

Klasse Workshop! Meiner Frau war ihre künstlerische Ader bisher nicht bewusst, aber das Malen mit Kaffee hat Spaß gemacht und war sicher der Anfang eines neuen Hobbys

We were very inspired by Viola and her art. She offered us a good cup of coffee, showed us everything about the technique and also encouraged us to try out many different ways of how to paint with coffee. Her quite and charming gallery tucked away in a beautiful street in Jordaan provided the best setting for a creative and mindful activity in bustling Amsterdam. We sure found inspiration to take home. :)

Amazing workshop! I never thought I can draw! But with coffee drawing technique and Viola’s kind guidance magic started happening on paper. We started with simple things and step by step adding elements and instruments. The result was wonderful and very satisfying! The process is super enjoyable and meditative. Viola is very interesting artist with many creative ideas. Excellent organisation! Recommend to everyone this completely unique experience!!!
