Drawing Classes with Deborah

Part of the pleasure of the drawing classes is the locations: first spot,  my quiet little atelier (“art studio”) near Denfert Rochereau, in the busy pedestrian street of rue Daguerre in Paris.  This is part of the old Montparnasse district, where the ghosts of Picasso, Braque and Modigliani are wandering around.

I also teach in Brittany, in the historic old port town of Vannes, a charming location with its medieval city walls and gates and many timber-framed houses.  Prefecture for the Morbihan region, Vannes offers many pleasures, from a stroll around the rampart gardens to lunch on the port with fresh seafood and a crisp glass of white wine.

Last, I offer courses in the bustling new city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Classes are held at twofour54, at the Park Rotana Office Complex; classes will also be organized this year in the new Louvre Museum opening in coming months.

Live sessions consist of two parts:  my direct instruction, and then you putting that instruction into practice.  When the drawing session is over, we all take a look at our work together to understand what the learnings are.  In Paris, we’ll work predominantly in the atelier, but will meet at the Louvre for one of the drawing sessions.
