THE BEAUX-ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT METHOD

The result of over 20 years of research, this step-by-step learning method is a synthesis of the best methods of teaching drawing.

Unique, this method is based on:
> Understanding
> Repetition
> Memorization
> Realisation

This gradual approach allows students to become familiar with the concepts that will accompany them throughout their training, before embarking on a deeper and more detailed exploration of each. In this way, students are put in the best position to make the most of the advanced courses in the second part of the program.
