Salom Beaury studied communications design in Potsdam and Berlin. She has worked for publishing houses and done illustrations on commission for cultural institutions and private clients.
In addition to “urban sketching” and live sketching, she has led numerous workshops at Berlin’s Big Draw Festival, and the sketching festivals in Weimar and Stralsund.
In her workshops, she combines technical skill with conceptual creativity. For Beaury, the most important criterion for a successful workshop is a superordinate subject that she uses to tie the differing experience the participants bring to the session to a joint context.
Doro Petersen studied visual communication and illustration at Berlin’s University of the Arts, and in Bilbao and Barcelona. She is a free-lance illustrator based in Berlin, where she shares a studio with K100. She creates her sensuous drawings, with their wealth of detail, using primarily handmade techniques like sketching, stamping, paper cuts, collage and silk screening.
Drawing is movement and mobility of eye, head, hand and pen! Doro Petersen not only follows that motto, she teaches it; as an experienced art teacher, she mounts exciting and playful workshops for art aficionados both small and large. She has developed and implemented workshop formats, such as the popular sketching walks, for museums (Bauhaus Archive, Museum of Decorative Arts, Museum of Prints and Drawings, Buchstabenmuseum etc.), schools, public institutions and corporate groups.
