After two marriages with wealthy ladies from the Leuven elite and more than five centuries later, Dieric Bouts (ca. 1410-1475) may have found his true love: Eyeliz, the Mona Lisa of TABLOO. If that doesn't expand the horizons…

On the occasion of the Dieric Bouts Festival from 22/09/2023 to 14/01/2024, some exhibitors of TABLOO got inspired by the Flemish Master: Geert Lesage from Kessel-Lo, Ria Vanden Eynde and Lieve Ophalvens from Heverlee, Femke Pues from Bertem, Christine Mallaerts from Werchter, Corina Karstenberg from Maastricht and Marín from Murcia (Spain).

The result of their artistic work is rewarded with a vernissage and reception on the occasion of 10 years of TABLOO on October 7, 2023 from 3 pm to 7 pm at Naamsestraat 180 in Leuven. Be welcome!

Set painting by numbers 'The Last Supper'

‘The Last Supper’ by Dieric Bouts (1464-1468) shows us how much time and patience old masters spent on a work of art. A surrender that we no longer know in our fast-paced society today. Or is it?

Become a Flemish Master yourself and test your patience with this painting-by-number set which was produced in Ukraine on the initiative of TABLOO on the occasion of the Dieric Bouts Festival 2023-24 in Leuven.

The set contains a numbered line drawing on canvas (40 x 50 cm) with pots of acrylic paint in different colours and 3 brushes. It is also offered for sale by Museum M in the Saint Peter's Church, at Barboek in M, at the tourist information office of Visit Leuven, at Aid to the Church in Need and Parcum/Heritage site of Park Abbey.

For all your drawing and painting material

Workshops

TABLOO welcomes all drawing and painting lovers! 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 in advance. 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)

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.

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.

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 not only offers materials to draw and 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.

After two marriages with wealthy ladies from the Leuven elite and more than five centuries later, Dieric Bouts (ca. 1410-1475) may have found his true love: Eyeliz, the Mona Lisa of TABLOO. If that doesn't expand the horizons…

It surprises many that Dieric Bouts painted ‘The Last Supper’ (1464-1468) before the creator of the Mona Lisa and world famous Italian Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci did (1495-1498).

After having finished her secundary art studies in Leuven, Femke Pues (°1990) from Bertem ended up in the care sector, and in the care for her children. Through a painting contest of Royal Talens Amsterdam in 2020, the desire to create came up in her again. In the meantime, her own Instagram page ‘Pues Art’ provides positive responses from family, friends and colleagues.

Kris Neyt (°1957) from Assenede is not the flamboyant type that calls himself an artist, according to him: “I did not choose the art, but the art has chosen me”. And so it comes that as a child he dreamed of making art. He always drew wherever he could, to the annoyance of his parents who saw a different future for their son than the artist's existence. And so he chose the profession of teacher in mechanics and technical drawing, but he never stopped painting...
