Located in Honfleur, France, this beautiful Norman house of the 17th century was the artist haunt. The young masters of Impressionism liked painting, in the garden, the changing light of the Seine estuary.

She could be your private guide to visit “Eugéne Boudin” Museum.
Paint materials will be lent. Maximum of 4 persons per lesson . The painting lesson time will be confirmed in advance.
