Visit to an art studio

On Friday 13th March, the IB art students were given the opportunity to visit the studio of Marc Batalla, in the centre of Renens.

After a quick powerwalk to the Lausanne train station lead by Miss Colin and a ten minute train ride, we arrived at the underground studio of the artist. After a quick introduction, he showed us some of his incredible work, explained how he makes a homemade base for his paintings and showed us how to create our own colourful mixtures with egg whites and ochre pigments. He explained the inspiration behind some of his works, which were mostly oil paintings of still life and furniture, as well as some incredibly detailed sculptures of everyday objects (a pair of slippers, an apple core, a sock, etc). He also told us about his recent and planned projects around the city of Lausanne and Renens. It was a great experience and the art classes thanked Miss Colin for the opportunity to learn more about the life and work of this artist.
