Sansom and Koekoek both work at the visual arts department of the Centre for Artistic Education (CKV) in Wageningen. During the coming months, CKV is offering some new courses with have an international flavour.
Both foreign artists, Sansom and Koekoek, explain that, although the courses are open to all, they are especially interested in the participation of people from other countries and cultures. The first course is entitled The Dutch landscape in a new perspective.
The two artists will bring their own non-Dutch view of the landscape to the course, and they plan to take the participants out to draw and paint the river landscape around Wageningen and Rhenen. The new perspective also refers to a technique which will be used in the course. Koekoek explains that a figure can be cut out from a sheet of cardboard and the frame that emerges can be used to look through at the landscape. She continues, This frame can be a square but it can also be triangular or irregular in shape, thus altering the participant's view."
