(Available english subtitle)
In a special, yet simple series of exercises we will show you a new way of perception, a new kind of sight. With tasks that are way too unusual for the left hemisphere we activate our brain’s right side. We further developed the already great method of right brain hemisphere drawing training with personality development and self-knowledge techniques we learned from accomplished instructors all around the world.
The drawing, which is a recognizable self-portrait at the end of the fourth day is a great joy, but the real significance of this course lies in learning a new perception that can be used in any other area of life. With it, we get closer to ourselves and live the experience of self-expression and the state of thoughtlessness which are all very important in the high-speed world of today.
We help this inner journey during our courses with special exercises.

What programs will you find?
Creative drawing course on the right side of the brain /4 days.
You will be the most surprised from the changes you make during the drawing course.
Drawing is an external path that is visible, and the internal change truly takes place… Drawing makes you seen!
If you can read and write, the basic drawing course will have an effect on you – even if you always thought you will never be able to learn how to draw.
What is it about?
We aimed to harmonize the body, soul and spirit.
We took the method of “Drawing on the right side of the brain” (which was first mentioned by Betty Edwards) and combined it with further methods we learnt from Indian and Canadian painters, and other self-knowledge and personality development techniques. We also pay special attention to those elements that are important and fundamental yet commonly forgotten in the everydays: the importance of breathing, smiling, thoughts and exercise.
To who do we suggest it to? From age 12 to 99
– to those who like to draw and would like to get to know a new kind of sight in order to add futher variety to their drawings
– to those who don’t know how to draw at all but are interested in what lies latent in them.
Watch the pictures HERE where you can see the differences in the pictures between the first and the fourth day.
Creative coloured drawing course, 4days.
What is it about?

What do we create with?
Coloured pencils, oil pastel, aquarelle pencils, powder pastel, crayons.
Who do we recommend it to? From the age of 13 to 99.

Colour painting course, 4 days.
What is it about?
The excercises targeting color mixing and color combining are usefull for novice and experienced painters alike.
Painting and drawing is a fantastic way for freshening up your creativity and try out new viewpoints and techniques. During this four days you will learn how to use colors in your creations.
What do we create with?
During our course we use acrylic paints because these are great for expressing the mood of a picture, can also be applied in thick layers, and are quick to dry.
Who do we recommend it to? From the age of 12 to 99.
– for those who took part in the basic drawing course and have learnt the new kind of sight taught there.
You can see pictures about the painting course here.
Would you like to see the world even more colorful and interesting?
During our courses we create an environment, use tools and do playful exercises and breathing exercises that together boosts the function of the right hemisphere and harmonizes the function of the two hemispheres of the brain.
During our programs you can experience and develop your creativity through drawing. In our programs instead of the left hemisphere that is responsible for rationality and logical thinking we focus on the right hemisphere that is responsible for creativity and intuition. When we create a balance in the function of the two brain hemispheres we also create an internal balance that effects our quality of life.
During our programs you will relive the long-forgotten taste of being lost and absorbed in creation that was natural when you were a child.
During the programs an infinite space opens up for you and time just stops.

Who are we?
Two of us lead the courses: Marianna Bajczi and Kitti Zabó.
Other then the usual courses for the Hungarian public
-we been teaching in Saigon, VietNam in 2016-2017
-Between 2012 and 2015 we spent all together more then 1 year in India. We were in Auroville (India) to do the color and drawing courses to teaching international groups.In a center teaching spirituality and art where we learnt from an international team and we also taught (with great success). Amongst other very interesting and colorful programs we learnt different ways of drawing and painting from Canadain, Indian, an Korean artists. We took part in various international programs, conferences and trainings that further developed our individuality and perception. Today we do our courses incorporating the best from what we learnt around the world.
-In 2014 we also had workshop in North-India by a Tibetan Children Orphanage which belongs to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
– In june 2015 we started a cooperation with Hungyary’s most strictest prison. We teach from there 20 sentenced prisoners. So since june this also became part of our job
– and we worked with psychiatric (schizophrenic) patients. It was a truly unusual and definitive experience. /You can read more about this here: Why is it interesting to activate the right side of the brain i.e in a therapy?
It is our belief and conviction that each and everyone of us is capable of creating something new, even if this is not what he or she thinks in her current situation.
Our mission is to open everyone, young and old, to the adventures of conscious, creative self-expression that develop and enrich their way of life.
We would also like to take the joy of creativity and self-expression even to those who, either because of their life situation or the childhood behavioral patterns, live these in a very low level.
Our primary task, other then to improve the harmony between the body, soul and spirit is to show this joy-based mode of development to others.
To give a taste of the feeling: if you didn’t think you can make such drawings in just four days, how many other areas in your life are you thinking in a similar way, without any real reason.
We think with great gratitude of those who supported and reassured us along the way.
It will be our pleasure to meet with you personally and make Your life more colorful with our course.
It is a wonderful feeling when you start a drawing, get absorbed in it, and then you just realize that several hours have passed… and get simply lost in time.
What is our goal?
We would like to take this mode of self-expression and this new kind of sight to more and more people who would like to express themselves better. We have several thousand declerations and TV interviews to prove that this change – which also effects your life in a very special way – is possible in a very high percentage of the participants.
We would like to give values to the participants: with these they can be more satisfied, carry them independent from everyone else, and thus live a life with greater peace (with themselves and with others), and find more joy in self-expression and creation.
Why is it interesting to activate the right side of the brain i.e. in a therapy?
“All the so called psychiatric illnesses: are a flower of fear”. In psychiatry there is no them and us!” /András Feldmár A hungarian psychologist and psychotherapist now living in Canada.
We were the first ones inHungaryto do a 5 day long creative drawing course with a therapeutic purpose together with healthy and psychiatric (skizofrenic) participants. It was the declared intention of the Psychiatric Association of Veszprém to activate the participant’s right brain hemishphere so new possibilites open up to them, boost their confidence, and also give them a community experience. Our drawing course designed to set the brain’s right hemisphere in motion went on in great spirit, with a wonderful sense of community, and really special creations were born.
We reached great results to everyone’s satisfaction. We are in constant contact ever since and get feedback saying that this special definitive experience still effects the patient’s thinking and behavior.
We think that if the method we teach works with such an effectiveness with the mentally ill people, it could also be great help to other communities who are living difficult times.

– Why is a different kind of thinking so important?
Daniel H. Pink : A whole new mind – excerpt
Think of the last 150 years as a three-act drama. In Act I, the Industrial Age, massive factories and efficient assembly lines powered the economy. The lead character in this act was the mass production worker, whose cardinal traits were physical strength and personal fortitude.
More about the function and importance of the right/left hemisphere:
In the 1960-s an American psyco-biologist Roger W. Sperry did research on the difference in thinking and function of the right and left brainhemispheres. He discovered that the human brain functions in two very different ways. One (the right hemisphere) controls the visual processes and intuitive information handling, and sees the whole picture, and then focuses on the details. The other (the left hemisphere) is the verbal which perceives the processes analytically, first dealing with the part and then with the whole. Sperry won the Nobel Prize in 1981 however later researches showed that things are not as simple as they thought.
