Art Workshops & courses

Mustepäiväkirjat is realized as a summer-long art excursion every Sunday from June to the end of August! The first workshop takes place at Kalajoen Plassi on June 9th from 14:00 to 16:00. Some workshops will be held in the Mustepäiväkirjat Facebook group. The group is still open, so click yourself in as a member right away! This year's theme for the workshops is 'Weather Diary'—how weather conditions affect you and your mood.
 

Let's record the day's feelings on paper and enjoy the spectrum of ink colors. Let's capture some color for the gray days! Mustepäiväkirjat is a paused moment just for you. You only bring yourself as you are in that moment. You get to tell, write, and paint what is most important right now. You create just the diary page you need today, as today requires. Nothing can go wrong. More workshops will be announced closer to the start date. REMEMBER TO REGISTER FOR LOCAL WORKSHOPS by email at contact@sannamariprittinen.com. There is a materials fee of €20 for local workshops. Otherwise, participation is free. Maximum 10 participants per workshop.

In June 2024, the Mustepäiväkirja group restarts, also functioning as art hikes throughout the summer. In art hiking, walking is part of the artistic process and aesthetic experience. During each hike, we focus particularly on the experience of the location and weather phenomena, creating paintings and sculptures using natural materials.
 

Upcoming art hikes:

7th July: Ardales Lakes, Spain

21st July: Rautio, Kalajoki

28th July: Vattajanniemi, Lohtaja, Kokkola
 

There is a materials fee of €20 for the art hikes. Otherwise, participation is free.

Artist - teacher

Sannamari Prittinen

I have been working as an art teacher at every educational level, from institutes to universities, since 2001. Teaching art is reciprocal and inspiring for me—my artistic journey has grown alongside people of all ages while painting, drawing, sculpting, and inventing new techniques in the wild and idea-filled world of contemporary art. I enjoy teaching classical art and methods of image construction as well. I emphasize observation and intuition in image-making. I love working with people of all ages, and I am also interested in the interaction with animals in the artistic process. I am able to provide instruction in Finnish, English, and Spanish.
