Holland is famous for its extensive list of artists, masters of craft with artistic vision which made them stand out. Creativity is not something exclusive to artists although it is often perceived to be. No! Creativity is in everything and everyone is gifted with it. Creative expression is a good instrument with which to connect with creativity and to see what it can do for you. To achieve this, what could be a better experience than to follow in the footsteps of the master called Piet Mondrian?

We take a beautiful walk, full of local history and the history of Piet Mondrian. We sample delicious local food and beverages, dabble in sketching and drawing, discover creative joy and even gain some personal insights. And, take home a little notebook which may inspire you to continue on this creative path. On our journey, your eyes will glide along the views that Piet Mondrian would have seen. We will explore the wandering and the pondering of the master Piet Mondrian. He gave room to his creativity in order to develop his vision. At one time in his life, he took many walks along the little river “het Gein” in Abcoude. Even without this history, the village of Abcoude is a little gem, hidden just under the skyline of Amsterdam. Abcoude provides a wonderful setting for a walk through a landscape which intrigued Piet Mondrian. And so will you be! You will walk and wander, and see ….and discover and uncover your creativity.
