Sensing Nature through Art


At: Strandbad Tegelsee Berlin

On: Saturday September 3 and Sunday September 4, 2022, from 12-6pm.


This exhibition puts together a collective mosaic created by the Tegel lake visitor community during the summer season of 2022 at the watercolour art workshops offered by Elise Garnaut. The participants were of all ages and art styles and created their works based on the beautiful surroundings of Tegel Lake. The exhibition also includes the artwork created by Elise Garnaut during her summer season’s work.


The exhibition will take place in the yellow hut on the weekend of Saturday September 3 and Sunday September 4 2022 from 12-6pm.

About the Artist:

As well as being a visual artist I am also a practitioner of yoga and Zen mediation. To me art is a way of seeing the world. I would love to share this approach with participants, allowing them to tap into the focus of meditation practice, which opens infinite possibilities to the creation of art as a new way of seeing.


About Mindful Art Workshops


I have offered Mindful Art workshops in retreat settings in Spain, the UK and Australia. I currently offer Mindful Art workshops at Strandbad Tegelsee Berlin, as part of their summer cultural programme.



Sensing Nature through Art, drawing and painting at Strandbad Tegelsee.


I would love to be able to bring the joy and playfulness of creating art to those who say,


“I would like to draw or paint but I can’t, I’m terrible at it.”


I would also like to offer guidance on the use of various art materials with both traditional drawing and painting materials and everyday items. Through playful and mindful exploration in our classes, I hope to bring participants to a place of self-confidence and self-guidance in their own art experience. All Materials provided.



Workshops will cover:

Using drawing materials: Pencil, charcoal, ink and pastel

Using watercolours both traditional and new mediums

Delacroix/Van Gogh colour theory (exploration)

Creating composition

Possibly- on request – introduction to using oil paint.
