In today’s world of mobile phones and media, a visit to a museum is often a passive and superficial experience. Visitors are easily distracted and do not truly experience beauty, magic and wonder. As a painter the visual world and art are important to me, I believe everybody have an artist in them, and that the best way to engage in this culture is by actively creating in front of the true masterpieces.
I have created this program in order to allow an experiential activity in the museums. I want to connect you to the genius artists of the past, maybe to see from their eyes, the best way to do that is to draw and copy their masterpieces.
Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres Said: "Drawing is the probity of art. To draw does not mean simply to reproduce contours; drawing does not consist merely of line: drawing is also expression, the inner form, the plane, modeling. See what remains after that."
Ingres is one of the greatest painters who ever lived, and his statement sheds much light on his artworks.
Drawing is for me the “mother of all visual arts,” no matter whether it is animation architecture, film, sculpture, and so on. It is the most ancient art, linking all of the fine arts. If you are an amateur or professional working in any field, drawing will enrich your artistic capability, sharpen your mind and vision, and add to your general experience in Paris.
Teach your mind how to see and explore Paris from a draftsman point of view, create your own souvenirs and memories. On my workshops you will have the opportunity to meet artists, the astonishing works of masters from the history of art, travel through the museums of Paris, paint and draw where they once did.
