What you'll do

A drawing/walking tour with an artist of Montmartre

This 3h hour experience is a walking tour, sketchbook under the arm, on the hill of Montmartre. It is not only a drawing course but also a travel into the story and history of Montmartre. My goal is to give you the basics to draw in all conditions and quickly create a travel diary of Paris that you will continue without me.

On the program all the inescapable of the hill but also (and especially in fact) a whole lot of small passages, places and landscapes to discover and draw. I shall tell you the history of theses place with old photos !

I provide all the materials: drawing book, promarkers, pencils ... and you will leave with your sketchbook filled as a lovely souvenir of Paris.

No experience required, beginners, intermediate, advanced and even ... enthusiasts accepted. This experience that I propose to you is for those who would like to draw, to have fun and to progress by discovering a Paris that you will never find in postcard. I accept children but not suitable under 7 years.

for a DISCOUNT :
-group of 3 travelers minimum.
-kids between 5 and 8 years old
Contact me by private message ;)

Are you looking for another place in Paris to draw? or
The only day you are in Paris and my experience is not available?
My experience is too expensive for 3 people?
ask me in private message, anything is possible!

I also propose another airbnb experience called "Be an Artist in Paris" in the medieval district near to the cathedral Notre Dame de Paris and an other one called "be an artist in the Louvre Museum".

Where you'll be

You may not have known that Renoir's house was here? The Place du Bateau-Lavoir deserves a pause to fill your notebook. Yes, "Moulin de la Galette" is still there, petanque players, Wallace fountains, vines, artists too!

If you are thinking of taking an art class (ever if you aren't in to sketching) this is a must do in Paris. Romain is so talented and very knowledgeable. He gives you history of the area you are in. We all learned so much from his class. There were 3 of us in all with different talent levels we all left with skills we didn't have before the class. He is so encouraging, it made me want to continue with sketching. Romain is welcoming you leave with a sense that you just spent the afternoon with a friend. Don't leave Paris without taking his class.

What can I tell you about Romain? If you want someone who is thoughtful about you, appreciates that everyone is different, who comes from well-crafted and qualified background and isn't scared about sharing the things they have learnt, tips they picked up, skills they have developed on their learning curve - then Romain is so very much for you.

This experience was unique and so beautiful. Romain showed us some of the most interesting parts of Montmartre. He was encouraging and patient with us and taught us brief lessons very clearly. Truly a one-of-the-kind experience. ☺️

Seeing Montmartre through the eyes of an artist was the most unique experience I had in Paris. If you’re a beginner, don’t worry! Romain will show you techniques and make your feel comfortable as you approach sketching various scenes. I couldn’t recommend this experience enough!

This was quite an enjoyable experience! Romain discussed the history of Montmartre and taught us some of the basics of sketching. He also provided individual feedback which was much appreciated. He was enthusiastic and welcoming right from the start, which made the experience great! Note: the session involves drawing in different locations in Montmartre (which I thought was great). So you won't be spending extended amounts of time drawing in one location.

Montmartre is a special place with a long history of association with artists. Romain was personally very engaging and had lots of tidbits of information about the area and the personalities associated with it. His credential are impressive for someone so young and the examples he showed us of his work were amazing. When it came to the actual sketching, he gave us enough of an overview so that we did not feel absolutely lost, but used a gentle coaching technique when providing feedback while we were sketching and afterwards. He managed to pack a lot of different sketching activities into a short period of time and pushed us beyond where we thought we could go. I have very little experience with sketching, but that in no way hindered my enjoyment of the experience. I would highly recommend a sketching tour with Romain to anyone who has even the slightest interest in creating art. My personal results impressed my on-line friends, which is a credit more to Romain and his instructional techniques than to my abilities.
