- See Paris through a different lens:
Our art lessons give you an opportunity to see Paris through a different lens! Discover places full of beauty and culture that might go unnoticed by those simply following a guide book, or taking a standard tour.

You can choose: drawing with colored pens & pencil/ ink, sketching with pencil, watercolor painting, acrylic painting, mixed media & oil painting.

- Learn how to make your own "Travel Sketchbook":
Explore a theme or capture an area of the city, with a pen, ink, and watercolor in hand! Through drawing on the spot exclusively, we teach you how to develop your creative and painting skills in a fun and engaging way.

- Convenient location:
Our art studio is conveniently situated in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, a trendy and artistic neighborhood on the Right Bank (North Side) of the River Seine.

Easily accessible by public transport, our studio is close to the metro stations Parmentier (M├ętro Line 3), Goncourt (Line 11) and Oberkampf (serving Line 5 and Line 9).

Student Testimonials:

"Pauline has been the best drawing instructor I have had in my 30 years of drawing. She is great at taking every student at their skill level and working with them. Pauline is very clear with her instructions and takes us to great places to draw. Of course we often stop at a cafe for coffee. She made my experience in Paris unforgettable and I am hoping to return next fall to take more instruction from her. Thank you."

"I signed up for Pauline's class at the Louvre with two friends, all of us visiting Paris from the US and Mexico. The class was a dream! Fun and instructive...She is a wonderful teacher, she explains clearly (in perfect near-native English) and best of all she patiently guided me. I know now that I can draw!! I plan to take more drawing instruction with Pauline, whenever I can. She is the best!!!"
