Workshops

TABLOO welcomes all drawing and painting lovers, during this corona time with mouth masks! Each course is organized in series of 6 lessons. There are also children's workshops during the school holidays. We work in small groups, so it’s necessary to sign up previously. Are you interested? Then send an e-mail to info@tabloo.be or call the number 0032 (0)16/20 55 29. (only during the opening times of the shop)

This basic drawing course is meant for who wants to learn how to draw, or if you just want to refresh or improve your drawing skills. We focus on basic techniques for drawing an object, still life, hands, face, body, animal,... according to observation. We mostly use a graphite pencil. In a following series, the basic themes’s are repeated and deepened. In an advanced course, the observation drawing is extended by experimenting with other materials such as charcoal, pastel, colour pencils, watercolour pencils, Chinese ink,...

For all those who want to learn how to paint with oil colours. You will learn the basic principles of this ancient medium by first sketching and then painting a simple object/still life to perception, by paying attention to the creative and personal interpretation of the background. Other topics such as portrait, landscape, animal,… are covered in a subsequent series. These workshops can also be continued by an advanced course in which we will paint more intensively according to different styles of several famous artists.

For kids who for once want to be a real artist. Like the great masters, they first make a design sketch based on the specific workshop theme. After a break with drink and snack they paint their design in colorful acrylic paint on a canvas or on an object. At the end of the session, they go home with their own work of art.

Exhibitions

TABLOO doesn’t only offer materials to draw and to paint, but you can also watch creative work of other artists there. TABLOO’s own small gallery wants to be a little artistic paradise for all art lovers and a place where art is always present. Would you also like to exhibit your work at TABLOO? Then mail to info@tabloo.be or call number 016/20 55 29 for more information.

Not for the first time an artist from Spain finds his way to TABLOO, but especially for this expo ‘Masters of the Art’, the cartoonist Marín from Murcia made a series of ten caricatures of famous painters.

Successfully extended until the end of January 2022 !

“I am someone who sees the world in both numbers and colors. Throughout my life I was looking for an emotional outlet, for a way to express what is going on in my heart and in my head at overwhelming moments. It was December 2016, at one of those overwhelming moments, that I sought shelter in the movement of a wet brush. Since then, I have found peace between the strands of a paint-soaked brush."

After their first group exhibition in the local services center of the neighboring Ruelenspark in Heverlee, the most loyal students of TABLOO are glad to leave their work one more summer period long at this Leuven's newest art shop. Their Loving Vincent portraits in oil paint to pop art imitations of Lichtensteins Ben-Day dots give color and life to the 20th century master painters.
