Color study will be part of the program a bit later. During the last term, we will go outside and practice urban sketching🙂

Recent testimony :

“Dear Pascale, I wanted  to thank you for the lovely afternoon my daughter Olivia spent at your atelier with her friends. Marine was indeed a fantastic animator. She was attentive to the girls and very efficient. Each kid modelled a little animal of their choice and they enjoyed the whole experience very much. It was very well organised and your atelier is so cozy, warm and inspiring. We keep a very fond memory of the party and I’ll no doubt contact you again on another occasion. Best regards, S.L”

“We celebrated my daughter’s 5 year anniversary at Art en Ciel and it was indeed a great experience, which we will definitely repeat. The children were all excited about the project (drawing and then painting a magical tree), which was appropriately chosen for their age and clearly explained. The overall atmosphere was very relaxed and festive, and all the children felt at ease expressing themselves. Thank you for making this day special !” GBF

“Dear Pascale Thank you so much for giving Harry such a wonderful birthday party last Sunday. He absolutely loved it and is very proud of his clay treasure chest and all the treasure in it. I have had many compliments from other parents saying how much their children enjoyed the party and how brilliant you were. It’s not easy keeping 11 five and six year olds engaged for an hour and a half, but you managed it effortlessly, keeping every one of them interested and happy the whole time. You have a real talent for teaching art to children and giving them the confidence to try things for the first time. Thank you for making Harry’s birthday so special. With best wishes for the future, Catherine
