Hello and welcome to Van Gogh Find Yourself.
The Important thing is that there is no judgement.
Remember this. We are here to let go and have a little fun. So relax a bit, breathe and #GetDrawnIn by the Master, Vincent Willem Van GoghOnline:
After the initial greeting and everyone joins in, you will be assigned breakout rooms to draw and chat for 3-5 Minutes in private, and do a quick sketch of the person in the room with you, without judgement.We will share our initial drawings after the 5 minute sketches.At this point,
Vincent will reveal the stories and secrets behind his paintings while he drawsYou will draw along and add colors to your initial drawing. If anyone has a question please raise your hand.When Vincent is done telling you his story, Walter arrives and we will share our our art and chat about your experience.If you have no paint supplies you can just be happy with that and if you feel adventurous you can always add some color from household items. I personally have used coffee or wine before for a little shading.

What a unique experience! Vincent (aka Walter) was a great host, storyteller, and artist. The story was fascinating, and the drawing was therapeutic. It worked well over Zoom, but I wish I could have experienced this in person.

We had a great time with Walter and Vincent! It turned out to be a private experience, there were just me and my boyfriend. We especially loved the way the experience was organised and learning the story from Vincent. Walter is a beautiful person and we enjoyed the time spent with him.

The experience was truly one of a kind. While people may know Van Gogh’s art, not many know his life story the way Walter does. Walter spent a good amount of time getting me started with unleashing the artistic side of me that I didn’t even know existed (still not good, but far better than I expected from myself), then told the story of Van Gogh from a first person point of view narrative that brought me back in time, as if I was witnessing everything myself. That was absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend this experience to art lovers (not only fine arts but performing arts).

The show has been very emotional and meaningful. Walter plays the role of Vincent well, and he himself is a nice person who wants to make this world better with art and kindness. Truly appreciate the experience.

Really unique experience which truly takes you inside the life of Vincent Van Gogh, while uncovering one’s own artistic abilities. We did this as a company team building activity and it was a lot of fun.

Walter took such great care of my family and really inspired, educated and empowered us! His drawings of us were amazing and were priceless gifts! He is a true expert and a natural charismatic and warm and welcoming host! He brings your imagination and creativity out and helps you find your inner artist! He’s great with kids too! This was an excellent Father’s Day surprise and a wonderful way for my husband to bond with the girls through art and creative expression! We can’t wait until we can do the in person experience in the future! Walter was kind enough to work with me on a scheduling mistake oh my part. We could not be more grateful and inspired!
