have fun, make art !

Have you always dreamed of painting like Van Gogh?

I give personalized lessons and internships, adapted to everyone's objectives. On the other hand, that things are very clear: I do not make abstract, nor DIY (pouring, scrapbooking or decorative painting).

 

Holder of a master's degree in visual arts and a certificate in university education, I led the fine Prima Linea Fine arts Academy in Paris for more than 15 years before opening a workshop at the Chat des artistes in Montreal, then finally the Prima Linea Art studio at Saint -Augustin-de-Desmaures near Quebec.

 

Prima Linea comes from the Italian words "alla prima", a one-day speed painting technique. It is also a nod to speed drawing in a few lines, thanks to the mastery of drawing.

 

I teach the fundamentals of art drawing and academic painting. These are scary words, but in reality it is for everyone, each of you. Painting is like riding a bicycle, it can be learned at any age. Of course, it's a little easier when you're young, but you can start retirement like any other time in life. It is also the ideal pastime during confinement. Many vocations have been awakened in the past few months and, if online courses are fortunately flourishing everywhere, nothing can replace the touch of the sheet of paper or raw canvas. Art is made with the hands.

Do not dream anymore, create now!

I give private lessons (on on one lessons) in my studio in Saint-Augustin, as well as on the occasion of weekend or vacation internships (4 people maximum). I also do artist coaching.
