Traditional drawing and painting include knowledges such as : light, shape, line, colour theory, space, composition. You will get to learn through copy of master works and real life observation (still life, landscape, portrait).
A programme of various activities for children and teens is available, focusing on the development of their curiosity, creativity and interpersonal skills. I will work with them on topics that they are interested in while developing a sympathetic, ethical and open-minded approach. They will learn how to see the world differently by using different techniques, materials, recycling elements or going from 2D to 3D works by using sculpture or installation.
For advanced students, I also provide counseling on creative thinking, artistic process and techniques. You will learn how and where to find inspiration, create better artworks through process, art history, composition, rythm, colour theory or experiment.
All programs will be custom-made, adapting techniques, level and themes to the pupil(s). Children can be taught in small groups.
