Atelier Passeur d'arts
Painting, drawing, sculpture, visual arts...
Workshops on weekends and during summer holidays,
for adults 16 and older.
"L'Atelier Passeur d'Arts"
"The workshop of sharing Art" is offered by a group of professional artists, longtime friends who work together in joint exhibitions and some teach at the same schools of art. From their shared passion for the arts comes the desire to share their expertise and to transmit their skills to others.
During the workshops, you will be hosted in an old Provençal farmhouse situated between Uzès and Avignon in the heart of wine country and local woodlands, sheltered by a century old tree and in a warm welcoming environment.
In order to assure personal attention to each participant, the number attending each workshop will be limited to 4-7.
We look forward to welcoming you and sharing our passion for the arts.
Led by Sylvestre Guené
Would you like to draw better? paint better? Make discoveries in these art forms?
Are you interested in copying your favorite painting? in new interpretations of photography? in painting live scenes?
These goals can be achieved through a different approach to drawing and painting and pursued to meet your pleasure and expectations. This workshop is intended to give you a good technical basis that will assure your artistic progress.
Watercolor Painting Workshop
Led by Malène Leloup
The range of tools that a painter uses can best be appreciated by combining training exercises and conducting more advanced projects. This workshop aims:
- to present basic techniques of watercolor painting that each participant can adapt
to his or her style, and
- to teach how to set up the tableau, to bring light into play, to manage different colors.
This approach seeks a poetic rendering of reality, of the scene before you, as we bring out the links among the elements that are part of the picture being created. We will go beyond basic techniques, and you will increasingly see something emerge from your sub-conscious, something perhaps rather mysterious, fueled by your desire to paint, your joy in painting. This « something » springs from within ourselves ad reveals itself through lines, colors, values.
… And the urge to paint overtakes us !
Sculpting Stone and Clay Modeling Workshop
Led by Eveline Kuhlman
Would you like to try your hand at clay modeling or carving stone? You have already experience in sculpting but you are eager to learn other techniques and work while receiving usefull feedback ? I am always pleased to help sharpen perspectives or the joy of learning a new technique or the simple pleasure of experimenting. I will be alongside you as you master knowledge of amounts, appropriate tools, and the treatment of different materials. Together we will find ways to get the visual result that pleases you, while we push a bit further than you may have done before.
The workshops will take place at "La Grange", a delightful old Provençal farmhouse situated in close proximity to Avignon, Uzès and Orange. Here you can work at your own pace in a friendly atmosphere or else take a pleasant break in the shade of a 100-year old tree.
Or take a nap or take a tour of the region.
