In the winter season, the Amsterdam Painting project moved to the inside of the building and hosted a series of workshops. The workshops were intended to help the residents of the azc forget their situation for a moment and completely focus on their creativity. The workshops catered to residents of the azc with varying artistic experience so they didn’t need to worry if they have never picked up a paintbrush before.


Participants would gain insight into the Amsterdam Painting project and learn how to actively engage in the project and develop their basic art techniques. Working in pairs, participants played with shapes, colours and various art equipment to create a piece that links into the large outdoor mural painted. This finished piece is now part of the interior of the public hallway that the participants pass by every day.
