What you'll do
THE FACEPAINT EXPERIENCE - I invite you to our hidden creative workspace in the centre of amsterdam! Enter the building and follow me! As you walk through our green garden the fairy tale will begin! You feel a little like Alice in Wonderland when you enter our secret creative space. ARE YOU NOW READY to start The Facepaint Experience? In this workshop you will create your own eye design, in your own style. I will introduce myself followed by a brief explanation of the Facepaint Experience. Before we start we do a relaxation exercise to help unlock our creativity and enjoy our natural state of being. We begin with the basics by painting on our own arm. WE LEARN about techniques, movement, and body composure. WE EXPERIMENT with colors, materials and styles. You will create an eye design on another person's face! Face painting is an amazing way to feel connected to ourselves and to others through a creative energy flow. You will spread love through color. What more do we need to say? You're artwork deserves attention, so we also provide you a Polaroid (wide Pax size) as a nice memory for back home!! Let's color the world!
I am the director & founder of the Feesttantes, the first Dutch Facepaint agency focusing on ‘face art’ since April 2010. My mission: to bring color into people's lives. I love to travel - I've painted faces all over the world, from orphanages in India to elderly houses in Burma. In the Netherlands I am cooperating with organizations like Facebook as well as Rijksmuseum and de Kunsthal. In 9 years I have taught more than 40 Feesttantes the art of facepaint. Also, I've introduced Face Art as an educational program at schools. Recently I've opened my creative workspace to share my skills! Yihaa*
Healthy snacks and beverages will be provided.
Where you'll be
The workshop will take place in our cozy and quirky, creative workspace. Our atelier is hidden behind a little green garden where tipi's and lights make everything look more happy & colorful. The neighbourhood called 'the Staatsliedenbuurt' is a quaint, upcoming neighborhood which is less touristic and really artistic! This unique space in combination with the 'off the beaten path' location - makes for a very special experience.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
