About us

Atelier in beeld is the big open studio weekend for visual artists all over Flanders and Brussels. A perfect opportunity to show your work or discover studios that weren’t on your radar.

Would you like to discover studios yourself next year, or open the doors of your own studio?
Then mark 4 & 5 May 2024 in your diary, because that's when the third edition of Atelier in Pictures will take place. Entries for artists run from 8 to 31 January 2024 via this form.

Would you like to be informed about the open studio weekend? You can find out all about our projects, including Atelier in beeld, in Kunstwerkt's monthly newsletter.

For whom?

All visual artists aged 18 and older with a studio in Flanders or Brussels can participate in Atelier in beeld. Beginners and experts, professionals and non-professionals, young and old. As an artist, open studio days are an accessible way to showcase your work and your workplace to a (new) audience.

The participating artists practise at least one of the following techniques: sculpture, collage, design, digital imaging, silversmith’s trade, film, photography, glass, graphics, graphic design, illustration, installation art, calligraphy, ceramics, mixed media, mosaics, painting, street art, drawing and/or textiles.

What is a studio?

The studio is the place where visual works are created. It's a workplace where the creative process leaves its trail: paint brushes and splodges, pointed pencils and pencil shavings, looms and yarn, some leftover clay and a potter's wheel, a printing press and ink stains… Visitors can witness where and how the works are created.

Some artists work in a big warehouse, others in a vacant building, in a separate room at home, or simply at the kitchen table. It doesn’t matter, as long as it's your fixed working space!

Individual studios, group studios, collective studios, art academies' studios, organisations or health care institutions that organise studio activities... all can participate.
