Travel Sketchbook Workshop for Children – School Holidays

Drawing in perspective, drawing figures, creating colors, composing, adding collage, and writing... A week full of creativity, learning various skills!

Your children will be ready to keep a travel sketchbook during their next holidays, and may encourage you to create travel journals!

Children aged 7 and above, and teenagers. I adapt my class teaching to the participants, according to their age and considering their personal aims. Group of 3 to 8 participants.

Product Description


The workshop takes place during the school holidays, over four days (Monday to Thursday), every afternoon from 2:00PM to 4:30PM.

The workshop’s aim is to complete a mini travel sketchbook: learning how to draw what you see, choose a subject, compose, add figures, include text.

We work from photographs, at the studio (no plein air drawing on the street with the children).

In order to complete their travel sketchbooks, the children will learn to: draw in perpective; draw figures and add them in a landscape; create colors from the three primary colors (acrylic paint, colored inks, watercolor pencils); choose their subjects; compose, lay out a page; add text and customize with collage.

  • The workshop costs 180 €/child for 10 hours of teaching spread over 4 days, in a group of 3 to 8 children. Enjoy a 5% discount when booking 2 places, 10% for 3 places, 15% for 4 or 5 places, 20% for 6 places (the discount is automatically applied and will appear in your cart).
  • Upon booking, you will receive a booking confirmation. Make sure to note Pauline's phone number, in case you were running late.
  • The following supplies are provided:

- 1 sketchpad per child (we use a sketchpad size A5, paper weight 120 to 160g/m2). We recommend leaving the sketchpad at the studio during the week of the workshop, to avoid forgetting it.

- Acrylic paint, gouache, ink, charcoal, pastel, color pencils, scissors and glue.

If you would like your children to use watercolor, or any specific materials that they may have at home, don’t hesitate to bring these supplies. Children can start collecting a few images or tickets that will be useful for their collages (entrance tickets to museums or attractions, photos that inspire them, paper cuts from magazines, etc.).

Remember to bring a paint smock to protect clothes!
