Drouot Formation, an educational tool for art connoisseurs, offers the professional "Art advisor, specialist in the art market" programme, as well as lecture cycles for the general public enabling people to grasp some of the major themes in History of Art.

The aim of the " Art advisor, specialist in the art market” programme is to train future high-level professionals in an entrepreneurial spirit, who can easily adapt to the fluctuations of the market and are able to operate internationally.

Taught in the Quartier Drouot, the neighbourhood surrounding the Hôtel Drouot, the courses allow students to benefit from daily and direct contact with works of art, and to meet many professionals along the way.

One Thursday a month, the City Council of the 9th district of Paris and Drouot Formation offer “L’Art en Conférences” (Art in Lectures). These lectures give attendees the opportunity to explore a major theme in culture or in the arts of living and are presented by speakers who are references in their speciality – researchers, experts, authors, curators, etc.

Free entry.
