As a freelance illustrator, ArtNights are a great secondary income for me. I feel incredibly at ease in the team where creativity and team spirit are so highly valued. I get a real sense of satisfaction seeing how much fun and joy my guests are having at each event.

I became an ArtNight artist because I wanted to share my passion for creativity with others! I love to inspire and motivate people and make them happy! Each ArtNight leaves me feeling full of energy, power and positive feelings!
Zina Levina Designer und Illustrator
I've painted ever since I was able to hold a paintbrush! I've improved my art, gained confidence, lots of new experiences and more belief in my work; that's why I love working for ArtNight. After many ArtNights and hundreds of different personality I've realised everyone has one thing in common - the courage to try something new!
Nina Schönian-Söllig Self-employed artist and mum
For me, ArtNight is the perfect complement to my artistic lifestyle. The first time I heard about ArtNight I knew I wanted to become an ArtNight artist. Like most artists I often sit alone in the studio and paint. I love the social element and interactivity an ArtNight brings.
Nina Rittel Indepenent artist and workshop leader
As an artist at ArtNight I love to show the participants that anyone can be creative, with a little bit of encouragement, fun and an open mind! I love showing attendees new techniques and seeing the smile light up their faces when they get past having to do everything perfectly and just let go by trying new techniques, colours and styles.
Sarah Wagemann Artist, illustrator and Masters student
I became an ArtNight artist because I wanted to help people unlease their creativity. Everyone should experience the power creating art can bring - it's a state of mind and not just about the end result on the canvas.
