Having studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris, with an emphasis on “painting and sculpture”, Rania Tabbara returned to Beirut only to discover the lack of artistic culture amongst Lebanese youth. She then decided to open “ “La Petite Academy” in 1999 whose aim is to transmit her passion of Arts to children and adolescents.
Overwhelmed by her passion for Arts, and being one of the art visionaries she also transmitted it through interior design (she studied Interior Design at the Lebanese American University), having the ability to juggle with interior design projects while catching a glimpse at all Art trends in the local and international arenas.
For the last 10 years she has been travelling all around the world to visit Contemporary Art Fairs and meeting with curators, Art lovers, Investors & Art collectors, and to build bridges and highlight the creations of the ME.NA.SA. ART.
