Painting with Chocolate

A guide to painting with chocolate by Laura Choco La

A guide to painting with chocolate

Only in the Cacaomuseum!  Chocolate is not only delicious to eat, but it also combines the best features of oil painting and aquarelle painting.

Explore your creativity and enjoy! You can follow the examples of the beautiful chocolate paintings featured in the Cacaomuseum and made by Laura Reiman, or make you own design.

The painting is combined with a museum tour including a cup of cacao tea, followed by tasting with all your senses and painting of the flavors of three high quality bean to bar chocolate bars. We offer this activity in the Cacaomuseum, but we can also conduct the workshop elsewhere.

Perfect for a company outing or gatherings with family and friends.

Workshop Time

2 hours

Workshop Price

€35 per person

Laura paint portraits of cacao producers with pure chocolate in order to make people more conscious of the origins of chocolate and cacao by showing them that there is literally a face behind the product they consume. Laura gives workshops to adults and children about the history of chocolate, always combined with some form of artistic expression.
Laura also developed an artistic approach to chocolate tasting by using colours to express the sensory experience of chocolate tasting. This means participants use watercolour-paint in order to visualize what they taste in forms and colours. “I notice that this way they experience the flavours a lot more intense and they are, also more profound in their descriptions and better able to communicate their experience to others”.
Finally, Laura is learning to make-bean-to-bar chocolate herself now, which is just as complicated as painting portraits, but also a very interesting process; “This is why I like chocolate so much, I keep learning and discovering more and more….chocolate is endless in possibilities!”
