The different stage of work are demonstrated step by step and commented in front of the students who then apply the principles under the tutelage of the Master.

This progressive and motivating method allows the school to welcome students from beginner to advanced levels. 

Whether teaching a landscape, an ornamantation or a trompe l'oeil, the aim is to offer our students the indispensable principles which will allow them to create their own models.

Worshops are "hands on". At the end of each course the students will have painted by themselves a complete and framable piece.
