End of Summer Workshop with Joke Frima

Are you ready to deepen your painting skills and learn from an experienced master? Sign up for our exclusive End of Summer Workshop from September 2nd to 6th, 2024, in the idyllic Vissingy, France.

Workshop Details:

– Dates: September 2 – 6, 2024
– Topic: Oil painting of fruits and flowers using natural light
– Location: Vissingy, 16 Route de Chatin, 58120 Chaumard, France

What to Expect?

During this intensive week, I, Joke Frima, will guide you in creating one or more paintings from nature. We will work on a life-size scale, meaning the paintings are usually not too large. Since fruits and flowers can move and change color, we will paint quickly and directly on a specially prepared surface.

Unique Approach:

– Prepared Panels: We will work on ACM panels, pre-prepared by me with a lead alkyd ground and an imprimatura of natural sienna. This method ensures excellent results and avoids drying time delays.
– Demonstrations and Techniques: You will learn how to prepare these panels at home, and I will also demonstrate how to make your own oil paint.
– Importance of Light: We will use natural light to observe spatiality and colors in shadow areas optimally.

Daily Schedule:

– Morning (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM):Intensive painting guidance
– Afternoon: Demonstrations and explanations of techniques, including making oil paint and preparing an ACM panel. After the demonstrations, you will have access to the studio to continue working on your paintings.


– Workshop: €350 (includes coffee and tea, excludes materials)
– Accommodation: €200 (private bedroom, shared bathroom, kitchen, and living room)
– AdA Membership: €20 (required by French law)

You can also choose to stay in nearby accommodations such as a local Airbnb or a holiday home. Food and materials are not included, but there is a fully equipped kitchen available for all participants.
