Painting contest of the Sorbian museum “Think of Art!”

Painting contest of the Sorbian museum “Think of Art!” 15 July 2019 – 6 September 2019

Strong colours, clear shapes and lots of feeling – all good ingredients to make some art in style of Expressionism. The sorbian artist Jan Buck is famous for this kind of art. Just look at these pictures above! Aren’t they amazing? He often painted his landscapes and still lifes like that. Let us create similar art works and join our painting contest “Think of Art!”.
