not a usual day for the kids at the primary schools of Au am Leithaberge &  Achau –  both villages in Lower Austria –  when I came in with Cretacolor Academy to work with them:







a post from March 2008:

today I distinctively became aware of the power of children´s hands to create vivid energy out of mere water-soluble colour-stuff master Siegfried Ressel & me brought in with the company Cretacolor to a primary school in the Austrian village Achau. – & I think  my part is now to let you participate in this spontanous acting of the kids with the art-material:

  1. What wonderful pictures…beautiful creative energies captured in time.

    “All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.”


    Thanks for sharing these with us!!!

  2. I totally agree with G-P above, and it’s so sad how many of us grow away from the inner artist as we get older.

    Your pictures, however, are excellent reminders of our natural inheritance!

  3. d´accord!
    and not only these hands, but your encuragement is adorable – when i think of all those (art) teachers i ever met…
