Learn painting like the French Impressionists and enjoy Paris’ classic views and urban romanticism on our outdoor sessions. This class takes place in the décor of Paris itself. Workshops are time and location specific. Painting from immediate “impressions”, you will unveil why the impressionists called themselves “impressionists”.
This course is open to and suitable for every skill level, including beginners. The number of participants is limited to 5. All art materials are provided, except for an A2 folder and/or tube you will want to have to take your work home with you.
