What you'll do

This is an experience for anybody interested in art, drawing and painting abstract art- no matter what your level is. I would like to share these unique experiences with you, to inspire you in your own creative growth. This experience is also for those who prefer to bring back a small work of art made by themselves. It is also an original experience that can be shared with the family, in a unique place reserved for insiders.
I will explain the process of painting from imagination and from models through techniques grounded in my own learning. I will give you some personal advices for your own creative development. The group is very small in order to offer you quality pedagogical support.
I will share with you every step of it.
You’ll develop technical skills by using a step-by-step approach to composition, light and harmony in a way to learn and actually experience abstract painting. It’s a great way to learn and actually experience abstract painting.
Finally, you leave with your creation framed, ready to offer or to be hung.
During the experience, we will take great pictures of you working in the workshop! Prepare your camera or instagram account!
Before saying goodbye, for those who wish, we’ll toast your artwork at a local bar decorated by local artists’s graffiti, right next to my studio.
I can’t wait to meet you ! ;-)
Other things to note
There is no particular need; you are a few minutes from Place Plumereau, ideal for eating before or after the activity.

I’m a painter for more than 19 years and I belong to the artistic association “le Quartier des Arts” (18 workshops, galleries and craftsmen in the neighborhood).
I have my own workshop in the heart of the old city.
I have been teaching abstract art for many years. I love to invite my friends and I like to meet new people. I am sociable and positive in life! I love to travel and above all else ... kindness and open-mindedness.
I have always been passionate about art, cooking (gardening),. and hospitality. Recently I got inspired to combine things I love the most: art, cooking, and hospitality, and imagine this unique experience. I would like to share my passion to create a magical and unforgettable experience

What a lovely experience! Sylvie is so warm and welcoming and I think anyone would feel relaxed and inspired around her. Sylvie's teaching style is adaptable, she offers great insight as the work is coming along, but always ensures that you take full ownership of the piece, so you come away at the end feeling happy and proud! The studio is well equipped with everything you need, and offers a nice relaxing space to work. And....there was fondue au chocolat!! Yummmmmmm.

Our experience with Sylvia lives on every day in our hearts and through our art. I’ve always felt nervous when attempting art, but with Sylvia- I felt like I could do no wrong. She was extremely kind and attentive, careful to help when necessary but wise to let me learn on my own. Her approach is as a teacher ought be, unique for each learner. My husband and I hope to return and paint again. If we lived in Sylvie’s town, we’d certainly get regular lessons. Don’t miss this opportunity to become the painter you’ve always been.

It was a great experience to make my own piece of art to take home. Sylvie is very perceptive and really knows when to step in and teach and when to let you follow your muse. It was a calming and creative experience to be in her studio.
