“I first started to make art workshops for a private kindergarten when I was 17. Later on I collaborated with “Aed Ludens” NGO in Bucharest, making photography workshops in schools and educational camps, using photography and games as tools for the development emotional intelligence. In 2011 I started my EVS at Culthus, Nykøbing F, Denmark, sent by A.C.T.O.R. organization, Romania. In the following year I moved to Copenhagen and continued to collaborate with CultHus and started to participate in Drums for Peace projects. I also organized together with local young people from Nykøbing F, an art project (Youth Initiative), based in Kulturfabrikken, Nykøbing F.”, (Daniela).

About the workshop(s):
The workshop is about visual communication and expressing ideas as individuals but also as a group. It’s very important to me that the participants make their own artistic decisions, take ownership of their work, and feel good about it. We also analyze and notice the difference of each owns artistic expression, the use of lines, colors, details, especially when it involves different cultures. The workshop involves mixed media combining painting, video, animation, photography and a small performance, depending also on materials and equipment available.
