About
Wouldn't it be fantastic to do an art workshop whilst visiting Provence? We offer a relaxing experience in an authentic and beautiful village, with a qualified teacher who is also a practicing artist. Jean-Louis has degrees in both fine art (BA Fine Art) and teaching (Dip Ed, Art) and 30 years of experience teaching art to all ages - so you can be confident that you'll receive expert tuition. We never need to go very far and most sessions are on plein-air, reached by foot, in or around the village. Being an historical and beautiful village Jouques offers many aspects that are inspirational for any artist. We offer a choice of two workshops at ARTELIER PROVENCE, 'A slice of Jouques' or 'Ochres of Provence'. Our workshops can be customised to individual and small group requirements. We also offer 4 day art retreats with accommodation, 'Art in Provence' or 'Encaustic comes alive', look for us online. Jouques is an easy 45 minute bus ride from Aix-en-Provence, or 30 minutes by car.

I had a day long workshop with Jean-Louis where we focused on drawing several different scenes including a landscape and floral in the morning and painting one of my choice in the afternoon. J-L covered a lot of information, had handouts I could take notes on, was encouraging and had useful constructive comments. He provided a variety of watercolor materials including paints, markers, inks, paper, brushes etcetera. He was friendly and hospitable. The location in Jouques is absolutely lovely. We talked about other art mediums as well. He invited me to lunch with him and we enjoyed talking about a broad range of topics. I am from the United States and one of the reasons I chose his workshop is that he speaks English. I highly recommend taking a workshop from him.

Artelier Provence and the beautiful village of jouques. Two days spent in jouques felt like a week. Thank you Jean-Louis and Fiona for making me feel at home . They both went above and beyond , and the experience felt like more than a workshop which made it truly remarkable .

As a beginner, I had doubts and fears prior to to the workshop . JL has provided a positive learning experience in a non judgmental environment . He made constructive feedback which was conducive to my successful learning . I learned that painting is a balance between working freely and loosely, and having structure and patience to allow a painting to develop.

This definitely won’t be the last, JL and F , À la prochaine!!

Dear Sheena, thanks so much for your considered and kind words which we enjoyed reading. It's always very rewarding to hear from clients who truly appreciate what we do, as well the time they've spent in Jouques. We hope you 'develop' many more paintings before we next meet - we look forward to seeing you again. À la prochaine indeed, F + JL.

With a huge experience in art techniques and painters of importance and knowledge of the area Jean-Louis will male your art experience an excellent way to spend your day.

On our 1-day art journey we have discovered a beautiful village, a million ways to make shadows work, use of color and many many more things. Our family of 6 had a wonderful time. Even though there were many levels of experience, motivation and ages!

Thank you!

I found the 4-day workshop with Artelier Provence - to my delight - by chance. The six days I spend in the village were a joyful experience. I was the only participant (because of Covid) and felt thoroughly spoiled with attention.

Jean-Louis was a skilled and patient teacher as well as a brilliant guide to the village. I was a delight having a bilingual ciceron with personal relationships in the village, who also spoke perfect English.

Jouques is such a charming village. Small and friendly and after just under a week it really felt like home. The course itself was well structured and didn’t require too much previous knowledge of painting. Most of all I liked the way we would refer other contemporary artists to discuss techniques and colours and get inspiration.

The studio, lodgings and private living areas are all in the same house. It was such a lovely house, ancient, but beautifully renovated. The bedroom was comfortable and the private kitchen well-equipped. There were dozens of books on art and design to be inspired by.

I will be back! Perhaps another season (to see the lavender), perhaps another painting medium.

Jean-Louis is a very talented artist, and a great teacher of both theory and practice. The working studio is a short walk from breathtaking views of the Provence landscape. The workshop was tailored to my exact needs, and J-L is very generous in passing on his deep and extensive experience across a wide range of styles and media. While I have been painting for many years, I came away a better artist from my short time there.

Thank you S, it was my absolute pleasure to have you attend my art-workshop here in Jouques. It was a very satisfying day all round, made especially so because you were entirely receptive to my tuition and suggestions. Hoping that what you've been able to add to your skill-set will make your art practice ever more rewarding. JL.
