Watercolour workshop on the Loire side, summer 2014
Naëhl was born in Brittany in 1966 and is a self-taught artist. She has been giving painting lessons for 8 years in her workshop in Les Rosiers sur Loire, near Saumur. Step by step she teaches you the basic skills and watercolour techniques.
The painting workshops are aimed specifically at beginners or those who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills.
Even if you don’t feel talented, the aim of painting is to enjoy spending time doing something you like and to forget everything else for a few hours. After the workshop you will look at the world which surrounds you in a different way and bring back home beautiful watercolours as a special souvenir of your stay here.
Naëhl speaks English and German.
The painting workshop might even be the opportunity for you to learn some French and to meet and chat with the other French students.
