about

Welcome to Passionarte!

Hi, I am Pernille, artist, designer and art teacher who enjoys encouraging people to find their own creative spark and believes it should be fun! From expressive collage journals, mark-making with handmade brushes to meditative group doodling on a large scale… Spending much of my time alone at my computer I realised I needed to connect creatively with others and have seen it has huge benefits. Artist, or non artist we all need more creative play in our lives.

This is why I set up ‘Passionarte’, a place to express, experiment and play like we did when we were children. So often this is pushed aside, or lost completely but if so, I can help you find it.  No need for any artistic skill, I believe everyone is creative. My classes are all about taking risks, letting go and enjoying the creative process. Often its through those ‘happy accidents’ that we discover the most powerful, beautiful pictures.

My art teaching experience has made me realise how much I enjoy working with people from all walks of life. I ran classes covering many methods and materials, but I found the collaborative projects particularly rewarding, great for bringing people together as well as enriching their lives, improving confidence and well being. Working collectively helps break down barriers of ownership and creates a shared sense of pride.

​Think of it as a mini holiday from your inner critic, with friends…

CREATE – Increases well being & happiness

PLAY – Relieves anxiety & stress

CONNECT – Enrich your life & support your community

EXPRESS – Get inspired & motivated

DISCOVER – Make new friends & learn new skills

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
