Paris inspires creativity. Easels, sketchbooks and cameras abound, and museums and galleries are full of art treasures as living proof. The WICE Visual Arts department embraces this creative spirit and offers a range of classes, from one-day workshops to in-depth courses.

Whether exploring the hidden corners of the city with your camera, sketching in a Paris café, or printmaking in an historic La Ruche studio, you’ll receive the personal attention and the creative inspiration that you need to really see (and feel!) Paris.

Let our experienced and talented instructors provide the practical techniques and creative inspiration to make the events, characters, and emotions of daily life in Paris something extraordinary and memorable.
