Fri Akademi 2019 – Stevns

Fri Akademi i september 2019 på Stevns blev meget vellykket. Rødvig Ferieby var vores gode faste base, og partnerne fra Verdensarven Stevns Klint stod til rådighed med foredrag og intro til området. De meget engagerede og entuisiastiske deltagere fra både Sverige, Island, Finland og Danmark malede energisk i timevis efter Uffe Boesens inspirationsoplæg to af dagene. Winsor & Newton havde sponseret fine goodie-bags til deltagerne, som fik lejlighed til at afprøve spændende materialer: bl.a. nye akvarelfarver som tidligere kun har været i et begrænset oplag, den nye serie cadmiumfrie akvarelfarver samt Winsor & Newtons nye papirserie.

Den sidste dag sluttede på Højerup bl.a. med besøg i den gamle kirke, der byder på et fantastisk udsigtpunkt over hav og klint. Som afslutning åbnede Højeruplund Traktørsted gæstfrit dørene for vores gruppe og bød på kaffe og kager.

Free Academy in September 2019 at Stevns was a very successful event. Rødvig Holiday Centre was our base and the partners from Stevns Klint World Heritage group gave us talks and information on the area. The participants came from Sweden, Iceland, Finland and Denmark. All were very enthusiastic and put in many hours of painting after Uffe Boesen’s inspirational introduction on two occasions. Winsor & Newton had kindly sponsored fine goodie-bags for the participants who then had the opportunity to test exciting new materials: new line of watercolours which recently only were in the limited edition, the new cadmium-free series of watercolour paints and Winsor & Newton’s new line of professional watercolour paper were among the materials handed out.

On the final day we spent some time at Højerup where the old abandoned church offers a magnificent view of the cliff and the sea. The final event of the last day was coffee and cake at the restaurant Højeruplund Traktørsted, kindly donated by the owner of the place.
