Tanja Zimmermann, Hapé Schreiberhuber, Katharina Schnitzler, Marion Eichmann, Eckhard Twistel, Matthias Mansen, Jeroen Bodewits, Kris Iden, Ivan Baschang, Donata Wenders, Göran Gnaudschun, Astrid Nippoldt, Thomas Link, Mathias Kadolph, Steffen Ahrens, Christian Hoedl, BBB Johannes Deimling are this years internationally distinguished artists at the Dresden International Summer Academy of Fine Arts. The workshops will last between one and two weeks and will take place at different locations in Dresden. You will be offered an inspiring atmosphere in the beautiful baroque city of Dresden and the Friedrichstadt neighborhood, where 100 years before the artists of the “Brücke” started their artistic group. The Summer Academy provides an opportunity for art students, professional artists, teachers, young talent and ambitious amateurs to work creatively. The courses are open to every age and nationality. This year there is a new course for children from the age of eight to twelve, where they can create a pop-up book with movable figures.

The three painting workshops offer many opportunities to express yourself. With Tanja Zimmermann, participants combine painting and collage to find the inner self. The workshop of Hapé Schreiberhuber concentrates on the human being and his surroundings.
In Katharina Schnitzler’s course you can paint the world with a curious and experimental approach that offers an exploration of new perspectives.

In the drawing workshop Marion Eichmann will help you combine the contrasts between line, structure, texture, brightness, colours, black and white, positive shape and negative space with the use of collage aspects.
Eckhard Twistel shows participants how to capture the world without words in short stories with cinematic influences.

Mattias Mansen, Jeroen Bodewits and Kris Iden offer this year’s print workshops. Matthias Mansen’s participants will think with head and hand to create an adventure in the cutting and printing process of woodcuts. Jeroen Bodewits introduces you to “a strange meeting” in screen prints, and Kris Iden will offer a glimpse into the soft touch of the vernis mou, technique of etching.

Ivan Baschang goes with you this year on a photographic search for interesting vestiges in the urban environment, and Göran Gnaudschun’s course considers portraiture through the lens of photography.

With Astrid Nippoldt you will transform the world into short video sequences by combining cuts and sound to create virtual sculptures or picture-sound-compositions.

Mathias Kadolph offers this year’s wood-sculpture course, where you can learn more about the material itself and about the creative process while turning an individual concept into a three-dimensional sculpture. Steffen Ahrens will introduce the participants to the traditional material of bronze and methods for working with it.

Christian Hoedl will create jewellery, that is able to communicate, leave traces and send signals to the world and BBB Johannes Deimling will compose art without a work in his performance workshops.
