Rewiewed by Jazz in February 2015:

"My husband and I only had two days in Paris for Valentines Day. We chose this painting class as one of our many activities. It certainly did not disappoint! Solène was wonderfully helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. We cannot recommend this highly enough not only did we get an off the beaten path experience, but two unique souvenirs and an amazing memory. Truly one of the highlights of our trip and something that we will be talking about for years."
