New course for Autumn 2021
The return of the ever-popular drawing course at Galerie JS.
Always wanted to draw, but don’t know where to start or thought you ‘can’t draw’? Bought some materials, but lack the confidence to get them out of the wrapper?
I believe that drawing is a skill that can be learnt by anyone with a little practice, encouragement and determination.
Whether you’re a complete beginner, looking to return to art or would like to practise with a group, I hope this course will be both helpful and enjoyable.
27th - 29th August 2021. An exhibition in the salle d'Aquitaine of local professional artists and craftspeople, plus a weekend of "open workshops" in the bastide with a craftsmen's market on Sunday in the Place des Arcades. just edfited.
1, 2 or 3 days of watercolour painting in Monflanquin. Monday 30th August, Tuesday 31st August and Wednesday 1st September. Book all three days or just one or two - the choice is yours.
Come for a day's painting or make it into a mini art holiday. Different subjects painted from life each day. Just 6 places available each day.
Update 23/6/21: 3 places left
Now in it's 6th year, 'Discover Watercolour' has been a popular course with beginners and people wanting to improve their watercolour painting. A 6 week course starting 6th July 2021. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 8 people with all sessions in our 'outdoor classroom'.
Wishing all our friends a very happy and safe Christmas.
We have our great range of gifts for Christmas: hand made porcelain jewellery, original paintings and reproductions and some of the popular 'Monflanclocks'.
If possible, call in and see us sometime. Christmas opening hours...
Galerie JS re-opens on Saturday 28th November 2020 at 10:00.

"Local Sketching" - a new course over 5 consecutive afternoons from Monday 17th August to Friday 21st August 2020.
As from Thursday 14th May 2020 Galerie JS is now open. We're now open every day from 10am to 6pm with our range of original paintings, prints, porcelain jewellery and stoneware "Monflanclocks".
A great way to practice and improve your drawing skills. Inktober challenges you produce drawings (primarily in ink) throughout October and post the result onto social media (Facebook, Instagram etc) with the hashtag #inktober or #inktober2108.
Never seems to be much time for sketching, but here are a couple from our recent (far too short) break in Biscarosse, on the Atlantic coast.
Just one stage in the jewllery-making process. We take care with each stage of the making process. Hand-drilling each piece after firing gives a much neater hole. Click 'read more' to see how.
Calling all artists and craftspeople. Professionals and amateurs welcome. Don't miss this opportunity to become part of the first Monflanquin Festival of Arts and Heritage.
New - handmade candleholders in porcelain. Made using the same porcelain material we use for our jewellery, the thin walls allow the condlelight to show through the translucent material. Work particulary well in darker rooms or corners.
Galerie JS has moved. After two days of installing new hanging rail and painting in 37 degrees of heat we are now open again in 41 Place des Arcades in the heart of Monflanquin.
A big thank you to everyone who came to our opening night. We estimate 50 or 60 people came, which is good for a small village the size of Monflanquin.
Here's a selection of photos from the night.
We're hoping to open our gallery in May 2016.
We'll be selling original artworks and limited edition prints of the south-west of France, plus a small selection of artworks with English subjects.
Our art gallery is located in the picturesque medievel village of Monflanquin, in the heart of south-west France.
We sell our own paintings and handmade porcelain jewellery.
