WORKSHOPS ("art infusions - make art, have fun")

"Creativity is an inner resource that everybody possesses." (Eric Kandel)


  • Impulses can be freely transformed in an individual creative way by means of simple techniques.

  • Possible impulses are: still life, portrait, basics of proportion, shadow and light, fabric, lyrics.

  • The focus is not on teaching certain painting techniques.

  • Techniques and impulses are adapted for people with dementia.

  • Working materials are mainly water color, acrylic paint, pastel crayons, paper, fabrics, which will be made available.

The target group are people, both without any knowledge in painting or advanced, who:

  • want to rediscover their creativity in a playful way (“stop thinking, start painting with your heart”),

  • would like to discover new impulses and ways of expressing their creativity,

  • would like to try painting, but have not been sure whether they have a talent for it.

  • Persons with dementia as well as their accompanying person can get into contact with other people as well as get access to their memories by means of painting.​

What can the participants expect:

  • They have room to experiment and can easily and freely deal with simple painting techniques.

  • They can get results in a short period of time,

  • discover joy in their own creativity, and thus increase their own well-being,

  • give the impressions of the day or feelings a creative expression,

  • discover painting as a means of coping with stress, and thus maintain long-term health.

What do the participants bring with them best:

  • They enjoy experimenting.

  • They have joy in painting.


  • Once, for 1,5 to 3 hours

WORKSHOPS ("Art Infusions" in the conception phase)

"The Art of Healing - Painting as a means of promoting health"


Within the scope of my additional training in health and nursing, I did a scientific research into various possibilities that the artistic medium of painting offers to cope with stress and to promote one's own health. The target group of the investigations were predominantly nurses in a professional context. However, the research results can be applied to all professions and to everybody in general.

Several international studies demonstrate that painting, detached from a therapeutic purpose, has been shown to promote health and is therefore suitable for preventing and coping with stress. Personal resources, such as problem-solving skills and joy, as well as social resources, such as the ability to work in a team and solidarity, are significantly  strengthened and thus increase physical and psychological well-being.


A playful approach and a focus on the creative process itself can help to overcome personal inhibitions towards painting.


I put the results of this research project into practice by offering painting workshops: The main aim is that participants discover joy in their own creativity and thus increase their own well-being and maintain long-term health. Target groups are both private persons of all age groups as well as companies from different industries who would like to offer their employees an easily accessible way of health promotion.


Painting workshops for people with dementia:


It is a particular concern of mine to offer people with dementia access to their creativity. I have gathered years of practical experience in this field.

For these people painting is primarily a tool for getting into contact with other people as well as getting access to their memories and direct experiences.
