MIXED MEDIAS

Children awaken and marvel at many artistic techniques adapted to their age: drawing (pencils, charcoal, pastels…), ecoline, watercolor, oil painting, pigments, Chinese ink, different printing techniques, modeling (clay), collages… We have small groups (10-12 children), creating a concentrated and relaxed atmosphere. At almost every session, children and teenagers discover new techniques, new materials, new aspects of artistic and plastic creation. We take each child on their creative path. Everything is proposed, nothing is imposed. The teachers hold a Master’s degree and are multilingual, the courses are given in Fr/Eng.

TESTIMONIES OF PARENTS

Dear Pascale, I am so very sorry that I didn’t get to meet you in person this week – it just happened to be an extremely busy one!   But I wanted to say how very much Charlotte enjoyed her art ‘stage’!  She was extremely happy and enthusiastic every day when she came home and she could not wait to show me everything that you have achieved together during the week.   And indeed, it was all very beautiful!   I am very impressed by how much you managed to get done in only two hours a day.  And the variety of techniques that you use. At the same time, it is really a nice surprise to come across a half-day ‘stage’ which is, I think, perfect for children after the rigours of the school term!  As an added bonus, Charlotte made a very nice Irish girl called Elise and they are going to play together next week.   So it really couldn’t have gone better!  Thank you enormously for all your efforts which are greatly appreciated.  Have a good weekend!  Kind regards,  A.G.     PS  As for the adult art courses from September, I think perhaps Monday morning (but have to verify) or Thursday night might be most convenient for me.  Are there any places available then?   JULY 2013

WATERCOLOR

This watercolor course explores the fundamental 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.
When we have seen all these practices, we will work on free subjects as well as the practice of «painting on the pattern».

GIFT VOUCHER: HERE

 

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

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’.
