Clelia Colao

Since her childhood, Clelia has always been drawing. After a diploma in literature and art, she studied at the Beaux-Arts.

Passionate about the restoration of paintings, she enrolled at the Louvre School in Paris. Once in Brussels, she joined the scenography section of the Institut Saint Luc to learn how to build theatre sets. She took part in various decoration workshops at the National Theatre of Belgium and at the Théâtre royal de la Monnaie, opening the doors to another world.

With several strings to her bow, Clelia is also an illustrator, notably for children’s publications, and a furniture restorer, another of her passions. Wishing to share her experience with children in order to develop their sensitivity for art, in all its forms, she turned to art teaching.

She gives art workshops in various Brussels schools such as the European School of Uccle, the French High School, or in other institutions like the Folon Foundation. These exchanges with children of different ages have taught her to take a fresh look at the learning of artistic subjects.
