Alpaca Painting Workshops in Switzerland (2022)
Apr 24 - Oct 2
Don't we all love alpacas? What if we told you that there's an alpaca painting workshop where you'll be surrounded by the cuddly animals?
Ever since we've participated in a session of alpaca yoga, we could not stop talking about the experience. The ingenious organizers have once again reached out to us with a new proposition: an outdoor alpaca painting workshop!
What an alpaca painting workshop is about 🦙🎨
"A lot of people enjoy painting alpaca pictures because it somehow unleashes their inner creativity," explains Aline of the Alpaka Erlebnisse Kollektiv. This co-op is behind the various alpaca-related events in Switzerland.
Each session is instructed by Jana Schafroth, a Swiss artist and illustrator. While wanna-be Picassos like you and me are seated on the alpaca pasture with easel, canvas, and paintbrush in hand, Jana will give some initial instructions. In her own alpaca artwork, Jana focuses on the animals' souls and the nature surrounding them. Alpacas are curious creatures, so they will likely interact with workshop participants.
At the end of the two-hour session, we each get to keep our acrylic painting. This could make for a nice gift with a personal touch. Or you could hang it in a prime location of your apartment where you see it every day.
