Primary Objective: Spread the Word



Arno Stern has liberated painting from the limits of communication. In creating the Closlieu, he has made previously-incommunicable Expression possible.


His pedagogy is based on the absolute respect of the individual. It gives the practitioner an uncommon function, not at all that of a master, but that of the servant of an exhilarating form of play. Through Play-Of-Painting, latent and unsuspected capacities unfold in every human being.


A brand new formula


Arno Stern and his team have worked intensively on a completely new form of Arno Stern training program. Namely: ONLINE and WITH SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION. Arno Stern has reworked the content of his courses and developed new presentations, which describe all the practical aspects of the Play-Of-Painting and the Closlieu, even better in this online program than before during the courses in Paris. It is particularly impressive to see how Arno Stern can master the most modern tools.

This new formula brings many benefits. The group can be larger (though a technical limit is to be considered). Participants do not have to travel to Paris. They can thereby save the expense of a 10-day stay in Paris. The course takes place on 5 weekends, and not for 10 days in a row, which is much easier to organize and does not require any special leave. Learning is more relaxed and not tiring, because there is more "in between" to "digest" the large amount of information.

The certification received at the end of the training (attendance is monitored through the online platform) makes it possible to open a Closlieu according to Arno Stern’s criteria list. Using the online platform is very easy: our team will be at your side before and during the seminar.

The next English-translated online training with Arno Stern will take place on 5 weekends in February-March 2021.
