Paris, the City of Light, is an inspiring place, notably for painters 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 be led through small classes with individual attention. These courses are structured enough to provide all the basics of the craft, yet free enough to allow experimentation and discovery.
You can register for full courses or else take individual classes at a pro-rata rate. See individual course descriptions for more information.

"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 knowledgable teacher who provides a very supportive learning environment."- Judith Turano
