Class are held in my studio #B66. By attending the class in my studio, you benefit from the environment of a professional contemporary art studio and the Mana Contemporary stimulating Art center.
I've been taking art classes with Jean-Antoine for about 8 months and he is very didactic when teaching; he makes sure all areas are covered, such as techniques, vocabulary and individual creativity. In the last month I've been working on a landscape painting where all the knowledge gain is being applied to this project.
Great teacher, patient with students of all levels!
