The ARTelier allows the guests to approach creation in accompaniment with a personal approach that does not require any gift or qualification. I am convinced that each individual, if he expresses the desire, is naturally a creator.
Painting is a game
We are deliberately far from the educational constraints that standardize learning, especially for children. Here "we go beyond and overflow" if we wish, we use the brush but we can "dirty hands".
We take at any age, since the workshop is open to all, pleasure to do what we do, to trace, to choose its colors ...
To flourish by painting for oneself
The approach is not to "produce" a work, nor to be inspired by any model, nor to "judge its quality". It is a question of drawing in oneself and letting his emotions pass through the act of painting.
Anxious people relax. The timid dare to express themselves, others, who usually do not hold in place, become able to focus their attention.
Creativity, confidence, self-esteem: everyone benefits from this moment of calm, concentration and freedom.
Organization & method
The workshops are organized in small groups (6 people max), all ages combined to share, together, the same activity.Participants meet in a convivial way around a large table where the colors and the supports are arranged, at their disposal. Each contributor will freely choose his subject, the size of his sheet of paper, if he prefers to paint on flat or on an easel, sitting or standing in order to be free of his movements.
Encourage the act of painting, putting everyone at ease, accompanying without imposing, eliciting "letting go" and experimentation while ensuring the good performance of the brush, dispensing essentially technical recommendations, discovering and preserving the material.
Workshops are held in Monaco at the Association Les ART'Ochtones, 5 Allée Guillaume Apollinaire, in the building Les Jacarandas.
Painting courses, over several days, are organised in my art studio, close to the nature, in La Turbie.
The ARTelier is enjoyment in colors !
