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

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.
