    Drawing lessons: comic, cartoon, manga, any style and level
    The classes are completely practical, focused on whatever the student requires. The first class is to establish the pupil's level, giving him or her some information and advice and proposing a few exercises to practice. From the second class, we start correcting the exercises from the last session, adding new information, and proposing more exercises. Learning how to draw is not easy, but this method is the most comfortable way. Moreover, we start drawing whatever the pupil wants, which motivates him/her to continue drawing. The lessons can be about character design, anatomy, perspective, backgrounds, line art, color, storytelling, comics, and illustration. It can be traditional, digital, or both.

    Learning to draw is first of all learning to look
    I am a very passionate person when it comes to colors, designs and crafts. I like to teach these subjects as much as I can. We will not only learn how to draw and color, but rather how to do them with a lot of love and joy. With concrete exercises during a session ideally of 2 hours, I will teach you to look differently at the things that surround us and "tips" to face the difficulties and to make you evolve quickly, tailor-made according to your expectations.

    Cours de dessin : débutant pour apprendre les bases
    Bonjour, je prépare des cours afin de partager mon petit savoir. Le monde artistique s'exprime sous différentes formes et je souhaiterai faire découvrir ces facettes ! Mes cours seront organisé sous formes de leçon et d'exercices. Le plus important c'est que vous vous appropriés les bases. Cette expérience seras très enrichissante pour vous comme pour moi. A très bientôt !

    Adeline
    Drawing / painting course and introduction to graphic design (photoshop, illustrator - vector drawing)
    Dynamic and creative, I am very patient and I want to encourage you in a positive way and focus on the progress you are making and your strengths. After my bachelor in computer graphics, I did a master in communication and performing arts. I then moved to London for a few months where I started by giving French lessons via this platform. I did various internships in audiovisual centers as well as in a fablab (3D printing, laser cutting, vector design, etc.) I have drawn all my life, whether on a margin of a course sheet, a canvas, a wall or a graphic tablet. During my training in computer graphics, I developed better drawing techniques and I learned to use software such as Photoshop, Illustrator (vector drawing), After Effect (motion design), Premiere Pro (video editing). If you are really starting out on computers and with more basic programs, I am also at your disposal. I think it's easier to learn when we talk about things that interest us. This is why I will ask you to share your hobbies and interests so that I can learn about them in order to prepare a lesson and make it more attractive. Especially since the computer / artistic field allows us great freedom of subject. We can try multiple techniques whether in drawing, painting or computer graphics.

    Comic book author, I'm learning how to tell stories in drawings
    As a comic book author, I teach people from all walks of life to learn how to build storytelling and develop their graphic worlds. In my work many things depend on the expectations of the student. If he wants to work his world, we talk about it and I try to help him in his direction. I also have many exercises ready to learn how to tell a story with drawings. We can also consider a long-term work where we build a scenario, followed by a breakdown and the other necessary stages of the comic. In short, each collaboration is very different. I am very attentive to the wishes of the participants.

    Cécile
    Illustration - BD - digital arts (Photoshop, InDesign)
    Associate illustrator in Plastic Arts, I suggest that you put my talents at your service. We can create a course together according to your project: a youth album? A comic book ? In watercolor, in collage, on computer? I can offer you exercises to help you progress or give you progressively guidance and feedback on your project already underway (workshop).

    Luc
    Cartoons / Comic Strip / Digital 2d / Digital 3d
    Graduate artist, having already given several private lessons, offers a course for young and old explorers in drawing. I teach the basics of drawing such as structure, composition, proportions, perspective and then sketching. We will explore the basics of comics and if the student wants to go further, I offer courses on Photoshop. Photoshop is very versatile, I teach the basics of digital painting, but also photo manipulation, mattepainting, and concept art. For the more adventurous, I propose a course of digital sculpture on Zbrush. Zbrush is a powerful program of digital sculpture, I teach to create characters, buildings, creatures (models frequently used in movies and video games today). If you enjoy artistic exploration and love movies and video games, then you're in the right place! For children from 4 to 6 years, I advise to follow the drawing classes on paper.
