Atelier Workplace Molenpad was established in 1975. It is located in a government owned building in the canal belt of Amsterdam near the famous shopping street, Leidseplein. It was started through an initiation of an Artists Collective, in dutch known as Kunstenaars Collectief Molenpad (K.C.M) The founding members of this collective were Herbert de Jonge, Michiel Czn. Dhont and Hans Houtman. During these 30 years they have collaborated with colleagues in other art disciplines in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and abroad. Their colleagues are among the disciplines of fine artists, musicians, actors, poets, writers, conductors and composers. Members of the K.C.M are located on the second floor of the former school building located on Molenpad. Since the summer of 2009, fine artist Michiel Czn. Dhont, who originally set up the Atelier at Werkplaats Molenpad in 1975, transferred this remarkable fine art atelier to his colleague fine artist Daniella Rubinovitz. Daniella now takes on Michiel’s place as an active member within the KCM. She offers the annual courses of visual Expression from movement and intuition. Michiel Czn. Dhont remains within the K.C.M. as a band with the music trio ‘O.BA.O’ in the music studio of the K.C.M. You are fully welcome here!

I loved being led on this adventure to let the colors create movement! Daniella asks just the right question at the right time allowing the image to shifts up to the surface of the painting. I didn’t have to think about it!

I hadn’t painted before! Then I started working with Daniella, and she made me feel so comfortable with the painting medium.There is a moment where a shift just happens and then I am able to SEE what’s there! So insightful!

Slowly, I started to learn to manage the medium of wet on wet paintings to create pieces that revealed myself to me!

Het schilderen helpt mij met het loslaten, ik zou nooit meer stopen ermee!
Brilliant – an environment that let’s you express yourself with no inhibitions – loved it.

I can highly recommend this to all. I loved my experience

Thanks Daniella we had a fun creative experience with acrylic paint using our fingers! The whole idea was to release the inner creativity inside us and unleash it on the poster board with different colours of acrylic paint revealing the artist within. The instruction was to use the paint to create a picture that represents yourself via colours, shapes or patterns or whatever came forth and made it on to the poster board. It was fun, bringing back memories from very early school doing finger pain…
