Before being a painter and pedagogue, Michel Touret is an attentive and generous human being. Initially, he ‘communicates’ with the trainee through active and sensitive listening, thus encouraging the expression of difficulties and needs. Thus he manages to ‘meet’ the person, exactly where the blockage is, that is to say, in an interior place which is personal to her/him and often has its own story. Then only work may start, which will always be a ‘personalized’ strategy. He then brings his technical competence, precise and practical, never failing to accompany the trainee with his discreet and attentive presence.
He knows how to comply with rhythms of energy emanating from this work and proposes solutions to personal questions. His teaching would never be summed up in a written program, since it lies beyond individualization. This is the crux of its specificity and richness.
