What you'll do

Hello and welcome to Van Gogh Find Yourself Online.
The Important thing is that there is no judgement.
Remember this. We are here to let go and have a little fun. So relax a bit, breathe and #GetDrawnIn by the Master.
Vincent Willem Van Gogh

Online:
For the month of August 7-28 and The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, I am offering 1 free show a day on AirBnB as a part of the PBH Free Fringe. Also there is, Dinner with Van Gogh, every night at 7pm an in person event in Edinburgh with a vegan meal.

In person and online we will all sketch share our initial drawings after the 5 minute sketches.

At this point,
Vincent will reveal the stories and secrets behind his paintings

You will draw along and add colors to your initial drawing. If anyone has a question please raise your hand.

When Vincent is done telling you his story, Walter arrives and we will share our our art and chat about your experience.

If you have no paint supplies you can just be happy with that and if you feel adventurous you can always add some color from household items. I personally have used coffee before for a little shading.
Other things to note
The experience is best viewed from a computer, phone, tablet. Please leave a review w/pictures of the art, this is one way to support an artist while they are alive.

I'm doing 3 shows a day for the month of August and will break the world record for Most Portraits in 12 Hours as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe's response to the festival being canceled:
More info here:
https://crowdfund.edfringe.com/vgfy-the-film

I am doing 90 shows (3 a day*) , except for August 10th when I attempt to break the World Record for the 5th year in a row.

Why 3 shows a day?
To give everyone around the world a chance to experience Vincent's story and stay inside.

I am an award winning international traveling artist based in NYC. I have created an interactive live art making/storytelling experience performing around the world the past 5 years. I have performed this experience/show in museums, 250 seat theatres, bars, lounges, dining rooms and while bartending (1 time).

Somethings are more important than money.

Walter crafts an immersive experience where people are encouraged to mindfully draw and listen to his stories of Vincent van Gogh in a safe and magical space. He's full of energy and his passion for art and Vincent the artist really shines through. Lots of fun and learnt a lot along the way. Thank you for hosting, Walter!

AMAZING SHOW!!!! Walter/ Vincent really shares his story or life like its a memory he is reminiscing or re- living. I recommend it to everyone.

My friend asked me to join the experience with her as an weekend activity during lockdown. And it was very good one. Walter played an incredible role in his story about Van Gogh, I was surprised to see him at first, just like Van Gogh 's brother Lol Really had a good time with my friend and other guests. If you have any question, I'm sure Walter's answer would satisfy you. I left the show knowing a lot about Van Gogh's works and his life. Thank you Walter!

I like the way Walter telling us Van Gogh's life story. He's a passionate artist, living his dream in Edinburgh, and it's nice seeing passionate people and meeting mates from around the world. Bonus: Walter as Vincent would draw you a portrait when you join his sessions. It's lovely.
