The art school
Nine artists and craftsmen joined forces in 2020 in the “Beaulieu des Arts” association. They offer you courses in drawing, ceramics, floral art, upholstery, sculpture, cooking, stained glass, Latin calligraphy and art embroidery.
These enthusiasts, despite exercising individualistic professions, have thus been able to federate with the municipality and create Beaulieu School of Art to promote culture. Located in the Cour des Arts, in the heart of the village, this school is a real meeting place with a human dimension, dedicated to sharing and transmission.
Apart from this school, other artists and craftsmen offer courses, workshops or open their shop for you to discover their know-how. In particular, you will be able to discover bookbinding, pottery, jewelry or even cabinetmaking.
During the summer, test and reveal your creativity during of the Estiv'Arts ! Every year, the Tourist Office prepares creative workshops for you to discover the know-how of our craftsmen!
