Sketching in the City of Light
15/11/2019 @ 18:00:18/11/2019 @ 12:00€90 – €725
A wonderful 3 night sketchbook adventure in Paris. We’ll enjoy strolling through the streets without the crowds and exploring the city after dusk; perfect to learn the skills of night sketching and capturing the vibrant colours and atmosphere of one of the most beautiful cities in the world by day!
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.
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.
