    Develop interest and knowledge in art history
    Graduated from a Bac +3 in Art History and a Bac + 3 in History, I want to share my knowledge and my enthusiasm for art history. I offer dynamic lessons adapted to each student to arouse their interest, ensure their learning and success in the subject. As with any art historian, the key is to start from images and other types of artistic productions to see all that they tell us (and all that they sometimes hide from us!)

    Art and Design class for all ages. Learn or improve your drawing, painting, collaging, and sculpting skills!
    This is a class for anyone who loves to create and appreciates the beauty and hidden wonders of life. With activities ranging from painting, drawing, collaging, and even making sculptures out of found objects, learn and/or improve your art skills by pushing yourself a little, or a lot, with this class. If you are an absolute beginner, or a professional seeking to diversify your practice, these lessons will undoubtedly challenge you as an artist. You have the freedom to explore whichever field of art you want, just let me know, and I will do as much as I can to guide and teach you the necessary skills with fun and educational exercises. I have more than 5 years of teaching experience, and am a former art teacher for children between the ages of 3 and 15. I have prior art tutoring experience, so you (or your child) will most definitely be in good hands!

    Alice
    Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
    I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.
