What you'll do

We will meet at a beautiful location in Paris, at a park or scenic area, or in the event of bad weather, in a café or inside area. Bring paper and pencil, and any other sketching materials you would like. I have been sketching here in Paris for the past 3 years, and it will be my pleasure to share with you my favorite spots for sketching! If you don't have any supplies, I can lend you the basics for our class. I break down the task into simple steps, and provide a demonstration at the outset, along with a lesson to follow. All levels are welcome! Children accompanied by parent or responsible adult are also welcome, age 10 and up. With the easy lesson, you will quickly gain some skills to sketch in a live environment anywhere. The sketchbook will become a treasured visual record wherever you may go.

Meet your host, Elizabeth

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I am an artist with a PhD in Fine Art, awarded by the National University of Ireland, Galway, and a Bachelors in Fine Art, painting awarded by the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. I have exhibited drawings, paintings and sculptures in Ireland, the UK, and the USA. I am an avid drawer and sketcher, and drawing has always been integral to my practice of art, ever since I began drawing during childhood. I have lived in the Paris area for nearly 3 years, returning back to Ireland one week per month to work in my studio there. I work in painting, drawing and sculpture. I am passionate about urban sketching, since travel has become such an important part of my life. I bring a sketchbook with me wherever I go, and love nothing more than to discover and share new techniques in plein air drawing!
