Training and Education

Grenier after Jacques-Louis David

It is because of the Larry Gluck's method, taught at the Drawing and Painting School Mission: Renaissance in Montréal that she has acquired a strong knowledge of Fine Arts. The first two years of her training have been spent at the Académie des Beaux-Arts de Laval, while the whole experience has been a full-time experience that has lasted 4 years .

For 6 years, she has been teaching part-time the basics of Fine Arts at the Académie des Beaux-Arts de Laval and, with a leasurely approach, taught for 3 years at the Place des Aînés de Laval.

Having moved to Brossard in 2009, she now gives a drawing course for adults at the Association Récréative des Jeunes de Brossard.

Goals :

To discover the basics of drawing in a few sessions.

  • Linear Drawing
  • Tone drawing

  • Linear drawing focuses on the line; you will develop skills allowing you to draw freehand and improve your sense of observation; with the help of numerous technical tools and exercises, you will become fully autonomous.

    Tone drawing allows you to differentiate between the values of a color and to recognize the importance of light, while establishing the three primary values, mass value drawing and discover the strength of their plastic language.
