Cours très intéressants, où on apprend énormément, au niveau des bases essentielles pour apprendre à dessiner, à peindre par la suite. Nous apprenons également à analyser des tableaux.Nous progressons bien, de manière régulière et enrichissante, tout cela dans un climat de bienveillance, de valorisation. Ambiance conviviale, dans un lieu calme et agréable. Laissez vous tenter par ce bel apprentissage! Un grand Merci à Gilbert Wolfisberg !

Une vraie découverte : passer par le crayon pour éveiller l’œil et la curiosité merci Gilbert de tes encouragements et de ta passion que tu sais si bien nous donner

Après plus de 6 ans de cours à Artquarium, lieu chaleureux et bienveillant, je peux affirmer que l’enseignement de Gilbert Wolfisberg dépasse de loin le simple cours de peinture ou de dessin. Il nous apprend à regarder les œuvres et leur(s) construction(s) avec un œil nouveau. La notion de composition prend alors tout son sens. La joie ultime vient lorsque nous nous apercevons que nous appréhendons le monde avec ce regard neuf, que composer prend corps dans tous les actes de notre vie : décorer, s’habiller, cuisiner. À l'Artquarium, j’ai appris cette chose fondamentale : la recherche de l’harmonie est partout possible. Je recommande chaleureusement.

At Artquarium, I found much more than just an art workshop. It's a timeless haven where Gilbert's benevolence, the alternation between practice and theory, and the spellbinding ambience of the studio to the sound of classical music make each weekly appointment a sacred moment. Gilbert's teachings on the language of classical painting have opened up new perspectives and enriched my way of composing and perceiving works of art. Thank you Gilbert!

It is a place of training that is both rigorous and essential in order to progress in creation. Learning takes place step by step, not only in the understanding of painting but also in the concrete application of what has been learned through exercises. Everyone progresses at their own pace, always encouraged by Gilbert's competence and kindness.

Great lessons, both theory and practice ! I started classes with Gilbert years ago, and every time I learn about great masters and new skills. Very pleasant ambiance with other students, of all ages and nationalities.

It's a nice atelier with gentle music and white noise from a little water fountain. The teacher- Gilbert, is kind to switch to English for me. I've learnt drawing techniques and ways to analyse paintings.

I particularly like the alternation between practice (drawing) and theory, including the harmony of shapes, composition, and contrasts. Real reading keys to better appreciate great works of art but also learn the basics of drawing and painting. An initiatory and very enriching journey.

It's been two years since I discovered the Artquarium and I go there almost every day! It's a completely different perspective on drawing and painting that has been offered to me since I met Gilbert and Arthur, we can understand how to observe paintings by understanding certain intentions of the artists. After having attended several Art schools, I am especially happy to receive all this information from real enthusiasts!

Super cours de dessin, on ne se contente pas de dessiner ou de peindre mais on apprend aussi des concepts plus théoriques qui permettent d'améliorer ses connaissances et sa façon d'approcher la peinture. Le cours est très complet. Chacun avance à son rythme. Gilbert est très pédagogue et souhaite vraiment nous transmettre toute sa passion. Vous ne regarderez plus les tableaux dans les musées de la même façon. Je ne peux que recommander cette école si vous souhaitez approfondir votre compréhension du dessin sous toutes ses formes et dessiner/ peindre bien sûr 🙂

Gilbert's knowledge is astonishing: I love his way of analyzing paintings (by great masters or lesser-known painters), each time, we learn lots of things! In fact, it is thanks to his love of painting, his passion for transmitting the multiple dimensions of a work, in short, it is thanks to him that I understood why we say that painting is a major art. It's fabulous to meet people like him, because they raise our level of culture. Thank you very much Gilbert!

I'm on my 5th course and I really like the approach to this course because we're not limited to just copying models. The teacher also teaches us to observe the paintings of the great masters and to dissect their compositional techniques and other elements which allow us to transform a simply decorative work into a work of art.

Un professeur passionné par la peinture, qui sait transmettre- au rythme de chacun - ses grandes connaissances de l’histoire de l’art, de la composition d’un tableau et de la magie de la couleur ! Ce que j’y ai appris :le plaisir « d’entrer » dans un tableau abstrait ou figuratif... La richesse de se confronter au travail des autres...et un rencontre avec moi-même. Bilan humain extrêmement positif ❗️
