Location Drawing (Travel Sketchbooking)
Image of Artistic Thing to do in Paris, FranceOne of our specialties is location drawing (or "travel sketchbooking" as it is known in France). Very popular with French people, location drawing provides a fun and personal way of visiting places, while developing your art skills.

Our classes aim at teaching painting and drawing techniques (color, perspective, composition, values, etc.) while developing your creativity and a greater sense of observation.

A travel sketchbook that you have created yourself is the best souvenir from the trip. However, these classes also teach you how to enjoy your everyday life differently, how to nourish yourself with detail and observation, and how to express your feelings in a creative and personal way!


4-hour Travel Sketchbook Workshops in Paris throughout the year:
The aim of our Saturday afternoon workshops is to have explore your creativity, to sharpen your eye, to progress with your travel sketchbook technique, but most of all to have fun!

Held in a small group (4 to 8 persons), these workshops are open to students of all levels. We explore a theme or an area of the city, with a pen, ink, and watercolor in hand, and draw on the spot exclusively.
