Workshops for English speaking children start 21Sept

(MPT Mélina Mercouri, Montpellier)


IEAM Outbound is a Montpellier based association that proposes monthly workshops to English speaking children where they can exercise their English as a learning tool. Workshops are open to members, and require a strong level of English to participate:


Mini Club - Designed for Anglophone children aged 5 to 7, this workshop helps kids express themselves with confidence, using song, rhyme, drama and movement aiming at developping reading skills and self-expression.


Club - Designed for Anglophone children ages 7 to 11, this workshop helps kids keep up-to-date with reading and writing in English, get ready for future study, and help develop reading and story-building skills as a way into Anglophone culture.


Discovery - Based on reading and personal written work from participants, this program typically involves literature and other written materials used in school programs of Anglophone countries and helps middle-school children aged 11 to 16 develop and maintain language skills.


NEW : First Steps - an exciting new Play group for parents with young children (9m-3yrs).

LA ZUMBA qui fait fureur dans le monde entier mêle fitness et danse latine, telles que la salsa, le merengue, la cumbia, la danse du ventre, la samba, le tango, le reggae.  Zumba permet en s’amusant, de développer son équilibre, de tonifier et sculpter le corps, de brûler un maximum de calories, de faire travailler son rythme cardiaque, de se faire muscler les fessiers, les abdos, les jambes et de renforcer les bras et le dos.                                      

LE PILATES est une forme d’exercice qui nous permet d'avoir un corps plus équilibré, plus fort, plus souple avec une bonne posture et une meilleure tonicité musculaire ainsi qu’un corps et esprit libre de tensions.  Le Pilates est devenu la discipline la plus prisée non seulement par le grand public, mais aussi par les kinésithérapeutes et les professionnels de la remise en forme.

'Paint along with Nicola' as well as a 'Watercolour Course for Absolute Beginners'

* You know you want to learn to paint, but going to a class is either too expensive, or you can’t make the regular commitment, or even worse they might all be better at it than you! Shock horror. So why not take the first tentative steps at home, when you have the time and without having to step too far out of your comfort zone

* Or maybe as a gift for someone who would like to have a go?

* Or even as a refresher course if you haven’t painted for a while  Just 4 spaces left

Courses and Workshops by Jackie Devereux 


My workshops and painting holidays (listed below for the forthcoming period) are a very important part of my own personal development too – I see them as a two-way process, and get to meet a lot of very interesting and creative people in the process, which I find to be totally enriching.

I am looking to do more demonstrations and talks around the UK in the future, so if you know of an art group, establishment or club who may be interested, do contact me. 

One of my titles would be: “Following a creative path – my life as an artist” An illustrated talk (which could be followed by a one-day watercolour workshop – optional).

One day and half-day workshops in Languedoc held fairly regularly- let me know if you are interested in details.

H.A.T.S Healing arts through self expression

Imagination is the greatest creative force in the universe’ Einstein 

With imagination I believe the impossible becomes possible.I believe passionately in creativity’s ability to aid and promote healing,a sense of well being,a sense of value,expression & self worth.

We all start out with an innate creative ability but our perceptions with time start to stifle us.Many of us believe we have to be of a certain ability in order to ‘put paint to paper’.I challenge that concept!This workshop is about enjoying the process and with that in mind you will be amazed by what you can achieve spiritually and creatively

We will use a diverse range of materials and process including collage; printmaking; pastels; painting; 3-dimensional work.You don’t have to have any experience of art, the emphasis is on enjoyment of materials and the process. Each week we will focus on a different topic and sharing through discussion, then individually ,we will each produce a piece based on self exploration, and positive affirmations for each persons own goals and circumstances.

65 euros for 7 week course inc all materials & tea and coffee.(max 5 people)

Course beginning last week of October.

A recommendation for a DRY STONE WALLING course

from Lizzie of the Couvent in Roujan 

Ali and I have just completed a three day dry stone walling course which was truly excellent. There were six students and an extremely kind and knowledgeable teacher. There are two more weekends coming up and we can't recommend it highly enough. It is very hands-on and well explained. The price is 120 euros per person and one would need reasonable fitness and French - even better with a bit of building French. All the others on our course were French and the prof doesn't speak English. 

Here's the link: 

Some photos of our three days:
