About ARCH

For more information please visit the ARCH website.

Designed for adults of all abilities, ARCH is built on the ethos of Les Tapies, which has offered successful art programs in Southern France for over 15 years.  The goal of the program is to provide a life transforming experience which brings out the best in the participants by developing skills which can continue to be nurtured forever. The key to the success of the program is to slow down and approach the opportunities with an open mind and an open heart with the time to pursue in a breathtaking setting. By eliminating stressful distractions and focusing on the positivity of the moment, participants allow their inner strengths to emerge and help them to find a healthy balance in life. We believe the creative process, which is inherent in everyone since childhood, is a valuable asset in achieving success.

The key ingredient of ARCH is the nurturing, supportive community that is quickly created at Les Tapies by the workshop leaders and the adventuresome, like-minded participants who share the experience. The workshop leaders are gifted teachers and providers who are passionate about sharing their expertise with the participants, whether they be beginning or advanced. The sense of community and working together in an atmosphere of collaboration is highlighted by the evening round table discussions, where participants share their daily experiences over a relaxed glass of wine.  The opportunity to network with participants from around the world creates enduring friendships that last a lifetime. The possibility to participate in and contribute to the success of the program brings the community together and adds a special dimension.

Please note ARCH is not a TASIS program but uses the same facilities used for our Les Tapies Arts and Architecture Program.
