Travel Sketchbook workshop in Paris - 2:00PM-5:00PM - Saturday

Every other month or so, on a Saturday from 2:00PM to 5:00PM, we explore a Paris neighborhood, with a sketchbook and watercolor in hand.

The goal is to practice fast and precise sketching, to learn how to compose lively and creative Travel Journal pages, and to see Paris with a different eye.

Groups of 4 to 8 participants
