Master ClassAimed specifically at anyone (18+) who has an affinity with drawing, there is the World Street Painting Master Class where you can show what you’ve got and amaze the public with your street painting.
During the Master Class you will work on a 2D or 3D street painting of your own design on the theme of Nature. You will be assigned to one of the international artists who will be on hand to help and support you, to answer all your questions and to view your work (critically) with an artist’s eye.

  • 1. Professional (street) painter: Set to work independently on your design in 2D or 3D and receive tips and a critical evaluation from the international artists.

Do it Yourself by van Gogh Contest – Velperplein  All good things come to an end, because at 3 September the 3D artworks will be removed from the streets. However, it is going to be a festive closure as for one last time this year, we will be drawing altogether during the Do it Yourself by van Gogh Contest!

On Sunday 3 September we are going to colorize the Velperplein with chalk in the theme Nature. With this theme, you could think of thousands of things to draw. The most fun part is that all the individual drawings make one giant artwork, at the end of the day. Children, adults, proffessionals and beginners, everyone is welcome to join. The more people, the prettier the square will become. At the end of the afternoon the judges will select who they think made te best street painting. Are you in?
