What you'll do
We will jump right into making a reverse painting: I will set you up to make sure you can produce an impressive piece of work by the time you leave. The clock is ticking, but whatever your previous painting experience, beginner to advanced, you will be surprised by just how fun and engrossing this technique is, while at the same time, quick and controlled. The sessions are open to adults and children over (about) 5. If you have a particular particular picture in mind to work with, please feel free to bring it along. I can also speak French - Je parle français and Chinese - 我会说中文
I have lived in Argentière in the Chamonix Valley for over 10 years, and work as an artist, an illustrator and an art teacher. I graduated from Falmouth College of Arts where I mastered traditional art skills, such as drawing and painting and printmaking. As a teacher I know that everyone has an inner artist in them, and that everyone can be taught. I work with children, experienced artists (some who may still need some nurturing), and nervous beginners alike, to bring out these innate artistic skills. I have developed several techniques to kick start your art! Reverse painting is the top.

Where you'll be
We will be working in my studio, and in my home, which is in a 17th century building in Argentière, very close to the Grands Montets lifts and the mountain bike tracks. Most the work takes place inside, so on cold days you will be warm and cosy indoors In the winter we can take inspiration from the snowy landscapes and views to Mont Blanc. In the summer there are lush meadow views from the garden.
