Drawing & PAINTING

Drawing classes

WICE is pleased to offer a diverse selection of drawing and sketching classes suitable for all skill levels. Students can expect instructors to rely on the beauty of Paris as inspiration for their course material, whether you find yourself in the classroom or out in plein-air.

Whether you've ever longed to try drawing for the first time or have almost filled your latest sketchbook, our talented instructor is ready to move you to the next step in your creative journey. 

See individual course descriptions for more information.

Painting classes

Paris, the City of Light, is an inspiring place for artists of all persuasions. WICE is excited to offer painting courses that encourage hands-on instruction, engaging creative assignments and lively group discussions.

With or without prior experience, you will benefit from the small classes and  individual attention. These courses are structured enough to provide all the basics of the craft, yet free enough to allow experimentation and discovery.

See individual course descriptions for more information.

Student Testimonial

"Jan's class is perfect for those new to drawing as well as people who have been drawing for a long time. This class provides an opportunity to build actual drawing skills which are learned and strengthened through very stimulating drawing/seeing exercises.   Jan is a very knowledgeable teacher who provides a very supportive learning environment."- Judith Turano
