How better to experience beautiful Clarens, than to spend time on an art retreat? Art is what Clarens is renowned for, so try it for yourself.
Tina de Beer is a good artist in her own right, as the photos show. She is a very good and experienced art teacher. From children who are not familiar with painting techniques, or who want to simply have fun painting and learning a little as they go, to competent adult artists, spending time in this studio will build and enhance skills.
Primarily art is about exploring how you interpret what you see, feel or think and finding ways of capturing that. It is a relaxing and very enjoyable process. As you immerse yourself in the process, everything else gets forgotten.
Regardless of how long you are spending in Clarens, Tina will arrange a time for you as friends, family, couple or on your own while your partner does another activity. It may be all you can spare is part of a day, or a whole day. A full retreat is 4 days. This experience will be one of the highlights of your trip. Do book to avoid disappointment.
Tina’s studio is a wonderful place for an art group to work together in the amazing Clarens light with painting worthy vistas surrounding you.
TINA THE ARTIST “Teaching art is my way of passing on a legacy.
As a young child I was inspired to paint by an exceptionally talented teacher who sowed a seed that flowered to fill my life with purpose and excitement.
My perception is that one can successfully paint what you’re truly connected to. Where there is passion and feeling a painting comes to life and speaks for itself without lengthy debate and analyses. Being an artist is where I now choose to be; it’s a voyage of discovery and fulfilment. The way forward was enhanced by a visit to the art museums in the Netherlands and Belgium and a wonderful day spent at Keukenhof amongst the Tulips. An exhibition of my work in beautiful Dresden was a unique and inspirational experience.”
