WATERCOLOR

This watercolor course explores the fundamentals of this technique and deploys the potential it offers. From realism to abstraction, discover how to handle brushes and colors, through the mastery of paper and water. After having tackled the essential question of the material (the colors, the tools, the paper) we will quickly get to the heart of the matter: Washes and gradients, brush effects and filling methods, paper humidity, masking and use of reserves, material effects and other textures.
After having seen all these practices, we will work on free subjects, as well as the practice of «painting on the pattern».

This course is given by our teacher, Robin, who speaks mostly French and a little English.

DRAWING

At first, you will learn the basics of drawing from nature : how to measure, how to recognize the shapes, understand the rules of perspective and composition and how to apply them. Further on, we will study portraiture and human figure and mostly use a black pencil, as we will look after the possibilities of tonal drawing (different greys, whites and blacks). Color study will be part of the program a bit later. During the last term, we will go outside and practice urban sketching🙂 

Throughout the year, different drawing techniques will be introduced : pencils from 4H to 8B, graphite leads, charcoal, chinese ink, color pencils, felt pens, pastels,… Wim is fluent in english, french, german and dutch. You can discover his work HERE

Parent and child TOGETHER in Art

Kids Parents Art classes TOGETHER - Cours d'art Parent Enfant ENSEMBLE

Once a month, child(ren) and parent(s) (or grand-parent, uncle, aunt…) come together to create under an artist’s supervision – the adult helps and supports the childs, and together they discover their unsuspected talents.
It is one opportunity to really be with your child, to discover your new talents and meanwhile, (re)connect with your inner-child.

You subscribe to one of the 3 possibilities offered : one on Saturday and two on Sunday. All sessions are given in English and French. We have a lot of requests for these classes, so the priority will be given to the families who sign up for all (or almost all) of the sessions and must be prepaid. If you can’t unexpectively participate, please notify us in advance so that we can offer your spots to a family on our waiting list and you could be refund, or you can find a replacement too. You can also join another group to catch up (if there’s still availability)).

Testimonials

I’ve been attending art classes with Pascale for nearly 6 years, her class having become one of the most enjoyable moments in my week.
Through Pascale’s skill, competence and encouragement, I have discovered “the artist in me” and this creativity has in turn increased my self-confidence.
I now believe there is an artist in each of us! With each class, I continue to explore and expand my competences through each new medium she proposes. A talented artist with great sensitivity and insight, her other strength lies in her ability to allow students to discover themselves through their art. Thanks, Pascale!
K.K

I would recommend Pascale’s art classes to all ages, they are informative, relaxing and fun, you will be inspired and challenged and have the opportunity to socialise and go home with your very own masterpiece each week, what more can you ask for.
K.S

My seven year old daughter really enjoyed her week with Pascale. She got to try using different techniques and materials, and created artwork that she would not have been able to do at home. She enjoyed working in Pascale’s studio & felt like a ‘real artist’.
