“Professor Larocque's mad enthusiasm for contemporary art and his confidence in his students’ abilities have made this class a joy to attend. His class has inspired me greatly to find my unique artistic path and I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for him”.

Nancy Brandsma (Ottawa, Canada)

An Art Class in Ottawa | “The You Factor” 

  • Fall 2021 | Starts on September 8 – Wednesdays from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

This art class in Ottawa is now offered on hybrid mode (online and in-person sessions). “The You Factor” is a stimulating course emphasizing self-expression via personal stories since it is stories that link us all. For those at ease in their medium who are at a turning point in their painting culture. What should I paint?  Why I am repeating?  Why am I imitating?  Where lies my creativity?  In brief, how can I become genuine as an emerging artist?  It is within this framework that we will try, together, to answer these questions, crucial to art-making. This art class in Ottawa is already in its 15th year!

The Class

“In the last decade of my long career in teaching drawing, painting, and art history, I came to realize the tremendous progress made in the sphere of art education through our school systems, museums, mass media and, of course, the Internet.  Therefore, I have a moral responsibility to evolve in my teaching, since the student-artists are much more aware of techniques, mixing media, and color theory.  However, the same problem remains: What should I paint, how and why? This course addresses this problem!” (Yves M. Larocque, Walk the Arts’ director)

Since 1997 Walk the Arts (icscis inc.) has been offering top quality painting workshops, art classes, and art history tours in Italy, France, Colombia, Spain, and the United States.
