Learn to paint while literally standing in the footprints of Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh. In my 4-hour oil painting workshop you will be painting one of Paris' most scenic views behind Notre Dame on the left bank of the Seine. Live in the moment while evoking a leisurely sortie de la Belle Epoch; including chilled Chardonnay and Brie wrapped in prosciutto. If you are an absolute beginner no need to worry! I will teach you the fundamentals of painting step-by-step as you create your own en plein air (in the open air) oil painting. Plus my custom-designed folder to protect your painting while traveling! Here's what Astra from Australia wrote earlier this month: This experience was one of the best things I’ve ever done. The area that Michael chose along the river was picturesque and it was the perfect day to paint. If you have ever dreamed of painting with a real artist down the river while having wine and cheese then your dream can become a reality with Michael. Michael was a complete gentleman. Our group only knew a little about painting but Michael was so patient and understanding. There were four of us in total. Michael had everything set up ready to go at the river so you don’t need to bring anything. Just listen to Michael’s directions and then relax and paint. At the end of the day Michael wraps your painting up for you so you can take it home. It was so thoughtful.
You may have seen me painting on the streets of Paris. I'm the guy with the paint smeared shirt, a solitary Ulysses carrying on the great tradition of en plein air. Painting is my life. It is my passion and I wish to share it with you. I am a full-time, professional artist. I studied painting in New York City for ten years under the auspices of several American masters. I am the author of numerous drawing and painting videos, my travel/painting exploits have been published in major American art magazine. I also teach workshops internationally. I want to ignite your passion for oil painting en plein air (in the open air) in the same spots that captivated the Impressionists.

Art materials and easel
The view behind Notre Dame on the left bank of the Seine has been a favorite gathering and painting spot for Parisiennes for generations. Surprisingly few tourists find their way here; yet Notre Dame and Hotel De Ville glisten in the morning light and are best captured in oil whose vibrancy and expression remain unmatched by watercolor and acrylic. I supply everything ... easels, paint, smocks, snacks ... paint like the true artist you are!
最多4人參加，年齡須滿14歲。 Painting is best done standing, but if you require a seat, please let me know in advance.
Just bring a hat and some sunscreen and prep yourself for an excellent day. I will provide all of your art materials, snacks, and, of course, a glass or two of wine to toast our masterpieces.
