Paris to Pasadena Art Workshop

What's New ​

Paris to Pasadena Art Workshop classes, lectures and tours guide students through a comprehensive framework of study—from composition and shapes to color mixing and brushstrokes—to master Impressionism. Then we add a unique element--invaluable tours of Southern California museums, to critically look at the paintings from a painter's point of view and learn from the Impressionist masters.  


Impressionism Art Tour and Sketching at Museum

Part private art tour, part sketching class, we will go on location in a local art museum to learn a new way of looking at oil paintings—from a painter’s point of view. 
This tour is ideal for painters who want to learn how to do Impressionism because it includes a segment where we will be closely examining the museum's paintings and doing an exercise on sketching. Please bring a sketch pad and a pencil. Admission to the museum is included.
