Learn the decoupage technique with the help of the art house workshop
Decoupage technique is a way to turn any object into a little work of art of your own. There are skeptics who do not think that decoupage is an art form, but it is your own creation which you can admire and you will know it is a masterpiece which you created. Considering the fact that decoupage is an extremely interesting activity, one class of learning this technique in our workshop lasts three hours.
Our decoupage workshop in The Beo Art House introduces elements of new decoupage techniques such as mixed media and scrapbook, and with that brings in and helps you master the use of materials which go beyond decoupage raw materials (reproductive materials) which are commonly used in classic decoupage.
These decoupage techniques help you develop a wider range of different styles, so you can create a romantic box (or any other object), vintage boxes, modern and simple, light or dark, depending on your personal taste using the same technique. With the help of this decoupage workshop beginners can learn how to work with colors, patina, pastes, patterns, and many other materials.
Decoupage (with all of its derived and combined techniques) is firstly enjoying, socializing , exploring and creating personalized objects which you can use yourself, or give away as gifts, and they will fulfill you and the people who receive your gifts.

What is decoupage and how was it created?
It isn’t widely known, but decoupage technique is a way of decorating furniture with the use of unusual raw (reproductive) materials such as paper napkins, wooden objects, glue and colors amongst newer, more complex types.
Weather you believe it or not the history of decoupage begins all the way back in 12th century Asia, even though the first popular types of decoupage techniques were seen in the 17th century and are connected to oriental works of Eastern artists.
The word decoupage originated from the French language – ‘Découpage’ – and it is the best explanation of what decoupage technique actually is. Decoupage means ‘to cut out’, which explains the technique of cutting decorative paper with different motifs in order to connect them to the object we wish to decorate.
This confirms the historical fact that Venetian artists wanted to imitate the process of decorating objects which originated from Asia, by decorating furniture cheaply with the use of cut out drawings (paintings) and attaching them to the furniture. You surely understand the economy aspect of this but that is how decoupage technique we use today in the Beo Art House workshop was created.

PAINTING AND DRAWING, CALLIGRAPHY, DECOUPAGE
The mind behind the BAH hobby center and an educator. I am a graphic designer and I’m currently studying painting at the Faculty of Contemporary Arts and I’m coming closer to making my dreams come true. Through many years of working with children and adults I’ve discovered and developed a lot of love towards my work, which is not only love of painting and art, but also an ideal combination of work, hobbies and my life’s calling.
BAH is my baby, it was created thanks to the love and support which was given to me by my loved ones, especially my husband, who is becoming everything I’ve ever dreamed about, and sometimes it seems like he will surpass my dreams and expectations.
