The art teacher

Jeanne Isabelle Cornière

Isabelle’s Art Studio and art program has been created by Jeanne-Isabelle Cornière (Paris,1974,  french-italian origins), painter and sculptor who lives and works in Florence.


Jeanne-Isabelle  was a child when she came in contact with the world of Art (her father was the composer, Yves Cornière). She first graduated in Art History at the University of Sorbonne (Paris), and then started to paint at the Académie des peintres of Poissy (Paris) where she specialized in old Masters techniques.

She continued with courses and workshops of drawing at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris and Florence Scuola Libera del Nudo. Then she perfomed with  workshops at the Russian Academy of Florence, with Russian teachers of St. Petersburg (prof. Vitaly and Sergey Chubirko). She also followed the studio of the painter Alessandro Berti and the sculptor Vincenzo Ventimiglia.
