A different Perspective


Picasso said that every child is an artist. Children see and experience the world for the first time, so creating new things comes naturally to them. They use their intuition and spontaneity and are not bothered by an inner critic or assumptions. Their minds have not yet been taken over by the rational, analytical, linear thinking that prevails in our world.

Artists are also masters of seeing the world with different eyes time and time again and thus reinventing themselves. With the help of some great artists such as Picasso and Gaudí, Kaleido will show you how you can do the same.

Working with colours and brushes, you will learn techniques to look differently yourself: Outside the box, beyond what you thought, who knows what beautiful things you will encounter?

Who is it for?

Art is for everyone. It's in everyone. Sometimes hidden, sometimes on the surface.
The workshops are given to people who want to enrich and broaden themselves, people who want to find new perspectives.

Are you someone who wants to look differently, not just at the world around you, but also at yourself?

You will be challenged to step outside your existing thinking patterns, to find the creativity in yourself, to use it, and to take it with you to your own life. You don´t need to have any painting experience to participate.

Karlijn Surminski

I´m a visual artist and art teacher and have been living in Barcelona since 2007. I have been working on a series of colourful paintings about Barcelona. This way I discover the most wonderful places in the city.

After becoming a mother of two I started an artclass for children and my company Kaleido. Actually these two things aren´t very different. The ability to create is something natural for children, but everyone has an artist hidden somewhere. What I really love to do is to show people how to find that artist, so you can discover that there are more ways to look at the world and yourself.
