School Workshop Middelburg

In honor of the art and education days Walcheren, the two-day do-days are organized each year. Verkerke set out with a group of twelve young people to make two works of art in a short space of time.

Because of the warm weather, Verkerke thought it would be nice to paint a trompe-l’oeil droplet onto a piece of marble or stone to cool down a little. The works were exhibited to the whole school in the final portion of the day. The results were amazing in view of the inexperience and the short time available. As it went along, the young people became ever more focused, and by the end a final sprint resulted in all works being finished on time. Hopefully, 12 new interested young people became inspired by the traditional painter’s trade.
