The Old Smithy

In the same location where, 100 years ago, a smithy used to be in high demand whenever farming equipment needed to be repaired or horseshoes replaced, today artist Markus Waltenberger steps up to turn this house into an albeit small, but very special center of communication once again.

Aside from his studio, where he himself paints and offers a wide variety of classes (see below), he feels connected to the same maxim that has always brought together “art people”:
Compelling smaller-scale performing arts events, including readings, concerts featuring regionally and nationally known musicians and poets, bring life into this beautiful old house.

Markus Waltenberger, a freelance and academically trained artist, offers 2-day PAINTING COURSES at his studio in the Alte Schmiede (next to Gasthof Bräuwirth and the Fischachstub'n).

In an intensive workshop, beginners and experienced painters have the opportunity to focus both on formal sketching techniques as well as free, abstract and gestural painting.
