Drawing & Painting Art Courses for Adults in the Old Medina

  • Explore your passion and learn a new skill
  • Make art for self-expression and self-healingC
  • Course especially for adults


Join me in unique drawing and painting classes here in an ancient riad right in the heart of the medina. Our small groups provide a calm atmosphere, so we can work in a non-competitive and non-judgmental environment where imagination thrives best. The courses are tailored to all levels. Students at the entry level can learn basic drawing/painting techniques, while students at a more advanced level can benefit from personalized instruction to meet their individual needs — all in the same class! All students will have the opportunity to benefit from my extensive university teaching experience. Together we will explore the foundation of art and learn about its history and secrets.

Art for Self-expression and Self-healing

As we are dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, time spent in the classes offers an escape from stress and worry. This is your chance to relax and enjoy a calm atmosphere. Learning how to draw and paint can benefit your self-development.

It’s my dream to be able to share with you my personal experience of immersion in art and silence, and to teach you how creating art can have healing effects in these difficult times. Art is a cure — a fantastic therapy to reduce stress and feel the joy of life. Find your inner peace and harmony with a journey through the world of aesthetics.

My background:

I have 10 years experience in Art and Graphic Design at the University of Humanities and Economics in Lodz, as well as at the Fine Art Academy in Cracow, Poland. I have also worked with many international students from the Erasmus program, following European standards. In 2010, I received my Ph.D. in Intermedia Art. My art has been shown at many international exhibitions. Please view my portfolio here: https://ep-art.eu/

I moved to Fes in April of 2019 after being enchanted by its spirit. The ancient medina has had an amazing impact on my creativity, and I feel compelled to share this with you.

My courses are created for anyone who wants:
● to create art without self-judgment or improve their art skills with my professional support
● to reduce stress and increase happiness using art as therapy (especially during this difficult pandemic time)
● to increase their creativity, self-expression and/or self-confidence
● to spend creative time with me in my studio and become infused with the passion for art
