Motto: "The school of seeing strives to ensure that all people learn not only to see but also to paint. Some may consider it a utopia - but a similar utopia has already taken place - after all, we can all read and write." (Radoslav Kutra)

A one-day painting class on Saturday is suitable for everyone, regardless of their level. Neither being a beginner nor the age of each student are important. Each one-day course is limited to 8 students and I devote plenty of time and attention to each individual.

At the start of each course, every student can arrange a still life according to their imagination, but I usually have 3 still life themes ready. Students then decide which one they will paint during the day. I often arrange still lifes with the aim of a certain theme, such as a lot of white or with flowers or objects, perhaps with non-traditional designs or composition in order to find creativity in chaos. For example, one such composition was the placement of repetitive objects such as yarns of different sizes using a colorful background.........

I introduce students to painting according to the School of Seeing, which emphasizes primarily a conscious seeing of each color to broaden the perception of the full color spectrum.

We paint with oil paints. Sometimes, a course is focused on a certain painting principle such as a limited palette, which leads us more to an awareness of warm and cold colors in the construction of space.

Students can also choose an image by a famous painter that they want to interpret by their own hand. Some favorites include Van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, Pissaro, Bonard, Zrzavý, etc.

There is a kitchen in the studio where students make coffee or tea, have a snack and, of course, we also taste wines made by my husband Mark or other winemakers from the Mikulov wine scene.
