On request, possibility of two students simultaneously with a reduced course cost.
Unlike other internships, the course program adapts to the progress of each student's learning, thus not being limited to a program and techniques previously fixed.
This has the advantage of not hampering the discovery of techniques and also of avoiding an accumulation of weeks necessary to achieve the best possible satisfaction of the curiosity and expectations of the pupil.
All the techniques of engraving and artistic compositions can thus be
discussed without restrictions during the course.
You will work in optimal conditions. You will be corrected directly by tracking your gestures by camera placed on the binocular.
The courses are on a 5-day basis for a sum of 1500 € without taxes.
Lunch is taken at Roland's.
Class times are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
