Fine Line Workshop
Mai 18, 2019 @ 13:00 - 16:00CHF110 - CHF120
My story started some time ago in Romania, where I was born in a family of 3 different cultures: Greek, German and Ukrainian. Soon after I had finished my engineering education, I left Romania and I lived in different countries as a global nomad. At some point in my life I had a regular office job and eventually a bore out. I saved myself quitting it and retreating into Hindu and Buddhist philosophy. A 2 year stay in an Ashram followed. This altered not just my world views and my beliefs but also influenced the way I express myself in art. I paint with my hands but my feelings, emotions and my intuition are in charge; the hand is just a tool. I never know how a paining is going to look like in the end. It is always a surprise to me. All I am doing is to stay as much as possible in a meditative, no-thought, neutral state of mind and let the intuition do the work, pick the right color, move the canvas, stroke the brush in the right direction.
Ana is organising Painting Retreats in Italy and Switzerland every year. You can find out more details here: https://www.

We are thrilled to announce a special workshop with Ana Paz (www.anapazartist.com)!! Ana is an unique artist from Romania, based in Aeschi, Spiez. While having a background in engineering, Ana studied Spanish Philology, travelled around the world and spent 2 years in an Ashram. Somewhere along the way, she fell in love with art and pursued this passion ever since. On this Saturday afternoon, she will take the expression „colourful playground“ to another level. Treat yourself with a relaxing afternoon and experience (shiny) acrylic paint in a way you will never forget!
“A drawing is simply a line going for a walk. A line is a dot that went for a walk.” – Paul Klee
How lovely is that idea? A line going for a walk. And that line can go anywhere.It can take you from A to B. Or further. It can be both a journey and a destination. Want to paint Abstracts but haven’t a clue how to begin? Where do you find ideas for great Abstract designs? When do you know when an Abstract is finished? How do you make those luscious quiet colors so your abstracts stand out? This fabulous workshop will guide you through creating an Abstract painting from beginning to end. All your questions will be answered and Abstracts will become your favorite painting style. Come join me for this special workshop filled with information, growth and creativity.
What is special about this workshop is not just the fun of playing with acrylic paint, it’s learning how to work with different mediums and weave more art into your life. My techniques and exercises are geared to helping people reclaim or expand their sense of experimentation, wonder, and fun.
– Paint an abstract background
– Looking for shapes in your abstract background
– Painting the negative space
– Building complexity layer by layer
– Adding patterns with mixed media
– How to draw fine lines
– Finishing the painting
This is not a typical „guided event“. There will be no step-by-step instructions for a particular painting. Instead, Ana will show you some techniques and tricks and encourage you to paint intuitively and freely.
