Tomatoes, basil and spinach are familiar to every child - but who has ever heard of nightshades, labiates and goose feet?

On these two days in July, different vegetables and herbs will be explored and artistically processed in the mornings and afternoons, resulting in a book with drawings, prints, recipes, descriptions and much more.

At lunchtime, vegetables are cleaned and chopped and a delicious meal is prepared from them.

Conquer your fears

Monday, July 26th. until Friday, July 30th, 2021

Photo and English workshop for young people aged 12 and over with the South African photographer Masixole Ncevu.

By taking pictures, speaking, observing and becoming active, participants gain self-confidence and courage. This workshop is about gaining an insight into storytelling in pictures, but also about looking more closely, jumping over shadows or overcoming small fears. The eye is trained in observation and the ear and mouth in the English language. Without any pressure to perform and without being judged, you can use photography to gain self-confidence in small exercises and train your team spirit. We work together indoors and outdoors. We will take photos together, but also individually, using smartphones or digital SLR cameras. The resulting work will be discussed and enriched with valuable tips from an excellent photographer. At the end of the course, there will also be ideas on how to make small photo gifts from the resulting works.

Masixole Ncevu's works were nominated for the "August Sander Prize" in 2018. In the summer semester 2019, he was a guest at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig.

Monday to Friday: 1:00 p.m. to 16:00 p.m.
Age: 12 - 18 years
Cost: € 75.00
Course leader: Masixole Ncevu, South Africa

Surprise yourself!

Monday, July 26th. until Friday, July 30th, 2021

An orange fruit half is joined by the hull of a boat and on a frying pan is an iceberg. Have you ever seen anything like this before?

Put everything on paper that comes to mind and makes you happy! Because in this course you will draw or collage many figures and things in order to combine them later in an associative way.

All the resulting motifs are placed on top of each other and cut in half. You will be amazed, because when you leaf through and open and close the divided pages, you will come across many unexpected combinations. In the end, you will hold a unique folding book in your hand that will always remind you of this wonderful week.

Monday to Friday: 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Age: 9 - 12 years
Cost: € 75.00

Second workshop week from 16.08. to 20.08.2021

Fashion and Design

Monday, August 16th. until Friday, August 20th, 2021

Of course, Henry will be waiting for you with his sewing machines again this year. This time, however, you will have to deal with your wardrobe before you join us. Take a look inside and you're sure to find lots of clothes that have either gone out of fashion, don't really appeal to you any more or don't quite fit.

Everyone talks about sustainability and you can do something about it too. Bring your discarded clothes and let your creativity out. In the group and with Henry's help, completely new and crazy creations will emerge. Cut off sleeves, unpick seams, put things together. And surprise your friends at the next meeting with an outfit that you can't buy anywhere else!

Monday to Friday: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Age: 12 - 18 years
Cost: € 80.00
Course leader: Henry Keppler, Wittenberg

In a frenzy of colour

Monday, August 16th. until Friday, August 20th, 2021

It's all about COLOUR! You can really let off steam on wonderfully large canvases. You've probably always wanted to do this. Simply dare to paint without any pressure or great expectations. Of course, you need a little experience and inspiration. An artist from Erfurt will be at your side. You will start with paint rollers and brushes and when you have had enough of the large formats, you can concentrate on smaller and more filigree works.

With or without previous experience, the course can be attended by anyone who is in the mood for colourful fireworks and wants to be free of expectations and guidelines. Let yourself be surprised!

Monday to Friday: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Age: from 9 years
Cost: € 80.00
Course leader: Anne-Katrin Maschke, Erfurt

From Anton to Zylinder - an alphabet goes for a walk

Monday, August 16th. until Friday, August 20th, 2021

Who says that letters only have to be boring and exhausting? Do you know how much fun they can be? You will certainly find out in this course. Because with us, the letters can really let off steam. Together with you.

Experiments with various unusual writing tools such as branches, toothbrushes and clothes pegs will be used as well as scissors and glue sticks. Textures will be created to train motor skills. Areas such as drawing, painting and writing will merge.

Different illustrated letters will be created, which in the end may be joined together to form a leporello or book. Let's see which one becomes your favourite letter in the end.

Monday to Friday: 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Age: 6 - 9 years
Cost: € 75.00
Course leader: Karen Zerna, Dresden

Third workshop week from 23.08. to 27.08.2021

From the Brick Booby to the Hydrant Snail - Discover Wittenberg's Illustrious Animal World

Monday, August 23th. until Friday, August 27th, 2021

Come with us on an expedition into the world of unknown urban animals. Meadow snake, fold-legged bear, lantern snipe ... are the animals we are looking for together. We will go in search of clues and explore hitherto completely unknown animal species that hide in the workshop, on the street and even in the loo. We may create an encyclopaedia of illustrious animals or perhaps a small exhibition of species diversity, a zoo of plug-in animals or even an animal theatre of the most unusual street animals. Anything is allowed that is fun and cannot be found in any biology book in the world.

Monday to Friday: 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Age: 6 - 9 years
Cost: € 75.00
Course leader: Stefanie Gehricke-Jeschke, illustrator
