A wonderful 3 night sketchbook adventure in Paris. We’ll enjoy strolling through the streets sketching and capturing the vibrant colours and atmosphere of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

The tuition will cover the essentials of sketching on location, which is ideal if you are a beginner or lacking confidence in your drawing. You will learn how to use ink and watercolour selectively, quickly and with confidence.

Suggested accommodation:
Hotel Minerve is a 3-star hotel set in a Haussmannian-style building located in the 5th arrondissement – which is a great choice for travellers interested in history, art and culture. Notre Dame Cathedral is a 10-minute walk away.

  • Friday: arrival and check-in. Over evening drinks we’ll discuss materials and plans for the weekend whilst doing some warm-up sketches
  • Saturday: after breakfast we’ll head to the Ile de France returning via Place de la Concorde
  • Sunday: a chance to explore the Champs Elysées returning via the Trocadéro
  • Monday: departure day. A last morning sketch over coffee in Montmartre
