Studio Jocelyn ‘the movie’

I would like to thank everyone who helped make Studio Jocelyn ‘the movie’, my new promotional film about my art classes. It was quite a challenge fitting everything in just over one minute. But I think it has turned out quite well. What do you think?

The Studio space
You get a real sence of the calm atmosphere in the studio. Children are working on their drawings and paintings at their tables, you can see their focus and concentration. On the left hand side you can see the great green wall where we hang children’s art work up. A monthly exhibition where everybody gets to show off their work. 

The art materials
We use all kinds of materials like, pencils, pens, charcoal, pastels, acrylic paint, water colour paint, paper and much more. There was such a lot of good work to choose from, it was difficult to decide which ones to use!

Skills and confidence
The film also shows why creativity is so important for children. They develop fine motor skills and learn different techniques like sketching with pencils, using paints and stretching paper. Also by using different materials they develop their artistic skills.


Many nationalities
Most important, the art classes have an international character. Children from all over the world come together here. From Holland, Great Britain, Germany, France, Turkey, Poland, Russia, the Ukraine, Philippines, Japan, China and America. They all have the same passion, to be creative not only with their hands but also with their minds. Even though they don’t speak the same language, they all have respect, and learn from one another.

I find it quite moving when I see them walking  around the classroom giving each other compliments about their work. That makes me very happy.

Friendly atmosphere
An last but not least, the friendly atmosphere in the studio plays an important role. These days children have a lot going on either at school or after school. It makes me happy to see the kids relaxed and focussed during the art classes. Having fun and creating something of your own is important for everyone both mentally and physically. Taking home a finished piece that you are proud of is always a bonus!

I hope you like this short film, please take a look and enjoy.
