Workshop »Das grafische Trainingslager an der Eider«

In August 2019 I have taken over the leadership of the long-established drawing class Das grafische Trainingslager an der Eider in Rendsburg. The class was founded 1990 by draughtsman and poet Fritz Weigle alias F. W. Bernstein. He was cofounder of the artistic movement Die neue Frankfurter Schule and the satirical magazines Pardon and Titanic. F. W. Bernstein held the leadership for 15 years, followed by his colleagues Bernd Stolz and Tom Breitenfeld.  

The class takes place at the Nordkolleg Rendsburg every year during the last week of August. 40 drawing people meet there for doodling, drawing portraits of each other, filling sketchbooks and enjoing the fun of drawing and creating comical art. Each year a guest artist joins the class for a few days and holds a workshop with her or his special assignments for the group.

In 2019 the class took place for the 30th time and in 2020 it will celebrate its 30th birthday. Therefore there will be an exhibition with drawings of all class participants at the printing department of the Museum Rendsburg. Main subject of the show is the Kiel-Canal and its 125 years jubilee.
